Note for PIs

If your lab requires a "weekly support group" meeting, there is no scenario wherein you are doing it right.

  • Is there a discreet way to find out if one of these is going on behind my back?

    Yes! Start giving extra rewards to your favorite, take him/her out to dinner, ask for them to review your latest grant first, confide in them, etc., and then TURN THEM AGAINST THE OTHERS.

    If it's everyone in your lab, because they are in your lab? Yeah. Failzors. If it's a weekly support group meeting for the grad students to kevetch, for the women to find a feminist safe space, for not-just-your-lab to exchange writing motivations/read each other's stuff... those are all fine things that plenty of people in decent labs might have need for. "support group" covers lots of ground.
