The case of bullying is not isolated in the school grounds, it can also be found in the workplace. It may not be that obvious but it is certainly present, with the same destructive effect to their victims. According to Chrissy Scivicque, a career coach, corporate trainer, and public speaker there are five ways in handling a bully in your workplace.
The steps Chrissy Scivicque recommended includes evaluating the whole picture of the situation, be brave to oppose what is wrong, record important details of the bullying incident, have your superiors and/or the HR department know what’s happening, and lastly, if all these steps fail, simply move forward with your life.
As you evaluate what’s happening with you in your workplace, make sure that the bullying incident is not just how his attitude really works. A workplace isn’t like your home, it doesn’t need to be a pleasant place to always go to, so don’t go mistaking his civil work attitude as a bullying attitude. Just like any other workplace bully victims, it needs a lot of courage to stand up for yourself. It doesn’t mean you’ll be retaliating with your bully, but simply make him see how is the right way to treat people, if not nicely, then professionally.
These are just a couple of steps you will need to do to according to Chrissy Scivicque’s 5 Steps for Handling Workplace Bully the right way. Read more of her article.
