Whether you’re supervising a bully, or you’re the victim, workplace bullying is costing you! As a manager, the cost is financial – lower productivity, decreased employee morale, and higher absenteeism and staff turnover. As a target of bullying, the cost is your mental, emotional and physical health. And it’s even worse if the bully is your boss!
Bullying can take many forms – name calling, teasing, spreading unpleasant rumors, deliberate exclusion, intentional bodily harm, or even cyberbullying. Whatever your situation, taking action is critical if you want to change the outcome. But taking action is easier said than done … until now! On January 29, I’ll be leading a live online event “Don’t Back Down – Dealing with bullies in the workplace” in which you’ll learn, specifically and in detail, what to watch for, what to do, and what to say in order to deal with the bullies in your work life.
