Bullying in the workplace!

We all tend to think that bullying is restricted to childhood but it may come as a surprise to many to know that bullying often takes places in adulthood and is extended to the workplace as well.

Unfortunately, the bully is usually the one in the position of power in the workplace. The said bully does not hesitate to misuse his power to bully his underlings. Of course the bully can also be a colleague, usually a senior one.

What has prompted this post is that I have been a victim of bullying in the workplace and from experience, I would like to say that the only way to deal with it is to call the bully out for what he or she is! We all need to remember that every bully is fundamentally a coward and that he or she will always back down when confronted.
