Sometimes, despite the best of intentions, we find ourselves in a bad situation at work. Maybe it is a terrible manager. Perhaps the job just isn’t as advertised in the job description. Or, maybe you’ve run right into a terrible company culture. No matter the reason, you probably feel frustrated, stressed — perhaps even trapped. You are not alone.
