Anele and the Club on 947

Should I warn my friend that they are going to get them self fired?

My co-worker, Paula, is considered difficult to work with by many, including me. She’s very passive-aggressive, but gets everything done on time; she leads teams well, but only takes them so far. However, I know a lot about Paula personally. She had a horrible, neglectful early life (no dad, mom was an addict), and overcame it with advanced degrees and a very committed work ethic. She’s finally gotten to a place where she feels safe and she’s holding onto that with all her might. But the ground is shifting in our company, and she doesn’t appear to be shifting with it. As a sort-of friend who cares what happens to her, is it worth it to warn her of my worries on her behalf?
