   schema:reviewBody ""Workplace envy can affect everyone: everyone is likely to feel, observe, or be the victim of envy in the workplace at some point in their career. This book argues that though envy is an omnipresent emotion in contemporary organizations, it often hides behind systems associated with other causes. Any type of dysfunction can be seen in a new light with the realization that it is a consequence of envy. This book explores what is likely to reinforce envy in the workplace and turn it into a toxic emotion and how a sense of failure and inferiority can arise in environments in which only performance and success are valued. With this in mind, Workplace Envy offers possible solutions to prevent envy from developing in such a way that it becomes harmful to an organization."--Jacket." ;
