Handling a workplace bully

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Studies show that one in four employees suffers from bullying at work. Judy Fisher-Blando of the University of Phoenix is writing her dissertation on the effects of bullying at work and offers these rules:

Know how to spot a bully. Annoying bullies are the “Bulldozers,” “Interrupters” and “Screaming Mimis.” Other categories include “Controllers” and “Chronic” bullies, motivated by their own insecurities. The most dangerous is the “Narcissistic” bully, who feels entitled to everything and has no morals.

Know how to stop one. Ignore lesser bullies, or ask management to address the situation. With a Chronic bully, document everything the person does to you.

Know when to leave. If you’re working with a Narcissistic bully, document every interaction and get a new job. Chronic and Narcissistic bullies are covert in their attacks, making it more difficult to root out. If you’re a target of their bullying, you’ll likely develop job dissatisfaction, as well as physical and mental health stress.
