Often I observe a male colleague chum around with male leaders, joking and poking fun with each other in meetings, like even putting each other down, but in good fun. How do you recommend to get around that. I definitely don't enjoy being put down, even when joking, but want to build a similar good natured relationship with the leader. Normally it just further shuts me down in regards to feeling comfortable and safe in jumping into the conversation.
