Here’s the episode:

Being ostracized is painful, regardless of whether it occurs in our non-work or work lives. We explore workplace ostracism in this episode with Josh Cogswell, an assistant professor of management at Nicholls State University who recently published a meta-analysis on workplace ostracism in the Journal of Applied Psychology. Specifically, we discuss:

  • What is ostracism and why does it matter in the workplace

  • Outcomes of ostracism

  • What leads to ostracism and implications for people, leaders, and organizations
