I just wanted to touch a little bit on a topic that I feel needs to be addressed to those of you who work full-time (or part-time). The topic is called Work Place Bulling. Workplace bullying, in my opinion, is the worst kind of bullying.
Yes, we all have been bullied as a child growing up, but never in my life would I have imagined that bullying can be at the workplace. I have done some research on the topic and I thought I would share it with you all.
The Work Place Bullying Institute states that 35% of the U.S. workforce reported being bullied at work. Here is a brief description of workplace bullying: Bullying is a systematic campaign of interpersonal destruction that jeopardizes your health, your career, the job you once loved. Bullying and non-physical, non-homicidal form of violence and, because it is violence and abusive, emotional harm frequently results.
If you’re being bullied at work The Work Place Bullying Institute suggest that you use a three step method.
Step 1: Name it! Legitimatize Yourself
Step 2: Take time off to Heal & Launch a Counterattack
Step 3: Expose the Bully
