Don’t let Bullies in the workplace get the best of you. Strategies such as Verbal Aikido give you the confidence to stand up. And gain control of any confrontation.
Let’s face it, you can find Bullies in the workplace in every organization. This is unfortunate especially when you consider these behaviors are happening among well-meaning, educated adults. Dealing with a difficult employee is challenging. In fact, allowing menacing Bullies in the workplace to persist eats away at the core of any department.
Above all, motivated, hard-working employees resent the organization for not managing the problem. Even more, performance and morale are negatively impacted. Soon the HR or Department Manager has multiple issues to handle that are a direct result of bullying.
Bullies in the workplace present a malignancy within an organization if not dealt with immediately.

- Dominate meetings in a rude or sarcastic manner?
- Corner other employees and make them feel uncomfortable when they think no one else is around?
- Sabotage a colleague’s work?
- Use inappropriate or profane language during interactions?
- Badmouth a co-worker to others in the hopes of making people turn against someone?
