You work for a large industry super fund and with the election coming up there has been a lot of talk of politics, in particular housing policies that will affect your industry. Most of your personal views are the opposite to the views of your industry and colleagues. You have personally been reconciled with this and it has never affected your work, in fact you have always enjoyed the company and working relationship with your peers. As the election draws nearer the conversations have intensified and you find yourself expressing your views.
It then becomes noticeable that attitudes towards you have changed and you are feeling judged, even at times excluded from social activities.
If this attitude continues after the election, should you escalate it or will that make things worse?
What would you do?
Does bringing your whole self to work mean having to share personal views and values?
