Tanya Menon, a professor at Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University, studies the deep psychological and familial roots of envy. She says it’s a natural part of life, and it’s also something that comes up a lot in the workplace – though it’s often misunderstood.
In the second episode in our two-part mini-series on envy at work, Menon tells host Morra Aarons-Mele that envy can cause us to lose focus and fixate on other people – instead of on ourselves and our work. But she says we can learn to draw good boundaries to better handle competition, fear, and jealousy in our careers.
