In my first post I spoke about bullying in the workplace. What should one do when placed in a position wherein your head misuses the power given to her by the institution and tries her best to make your life miserable? What should one do when one is in a situation where one does not look forward to going in to work everyday?
Sadly, I have been placed in such a position in my workplace. I am being constantly harassed and pressured on a daily basis by a person who unfortunately has been given a position of authority by the institution for which I work.
Should I decide not to be a victim and fight back? But that fight will ultimately cause distress to me and put me under more pressure. Or should I bow out of the situation?
What is to be done about people who use their authority to harass and disrespect those who are below them in the hierarchy of an organisation? I would welcome comments, suggestions and advice from all those who read my post.
