Lateral Hostility?
November 8, 2018 7:30 PM   Subscribe

I read an article in a magazine about bullying or about hostile work environments a couple months ago. The magazine may have been Psychology Today. It talked about how when the hostility comes from the top of an organization, it makes its way down to the lowest level and causes the people on this level to 'fight' amongst themselves, calling it lateral or horizontal hostility or something like that. Do you happen to know the article I'm talking about?

It's not these:

It was discussed on an episode of Hidden Brain this year: Why Now?

I would think that hostility traveling from the top of an organization downward would be traveling in a vertical direction, thus "vertical hostility." Would searching on that term help?
