How to Intervene When a Manager Is Gaslighting Their Employees

“When high performers become quiet and disinterested and are then labeled as low performers, we as leaders of our organizations must understand why,” says Lan Phan, founder and CEO of community of SEVEN, who coaches executives in her curated core community groups. “Being gaslighted by their manager can be a key driver of why someone’s performance is suddenly declining. Over time, gaslighting will slowly erode their sense of confidence and self-worth.”


Conquering Your Everest: Leadership Tools That Will Help You Climb To The Top

As a leader, it’s best to try to limit calls and meetings to seven people, recommends Lan Phan. The founder of community of SEVEN, an exclusive community of executives and thought leaders, finds this to be the most efficient group size to be productive and effectuate change. Each additional group member beyond the initial seven, says Phan, is about 10% less productive. Leaders must establish trust and lead like the “North Star,” says Phan.

Modern Minorities

Lan Phan Believes in Community (of Seven)

Lan Phan may or may not have once driven a getaway car, founded her own music agency, and/or had a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio – all before she was 30. Today she’s left her BigCo business cards behind, and is now the founder of COMMUNITY OF SEVEN – which brings together big brands and non-profits – to solve big business and societal problems – through content, events and loyalty programs. Not bad for a girl who grew up rough-and-tumble in Inglewood (the not-so-nice part of LA). Hear Lan share her thoughts on (Vietnamese) refugee parents, (Jamasian) parenting, how strength comes from adversity, and finding yourself in crowds where you don’t always fit in.
