"This is the best book on what workplace bullies do and how to stop them in their tracks. The Namies' remarkably useful and concrete advice has helped millions of people, and The Bully at work will spread their tried-and-true wisdom to millions more."
Robert I. Sutton, Stanford Professor and author The No Asshole Rule
Our book for bullied individuals and people who love them ...
by Gary and Ruth Namie
New studies. New wisdom. New outrage. Simpler strategies.
In a single volume, the authors describe exactly what the targeted (not victimized) person needs to do when attacked without provocation or justification by a workplace tyrant. Stopping the hurt from traumatizing injuries suffered at the hands of shameless, cruel bullies, comes first. The Namies' fighting back strategies are not your parents' "go to HR" lily-livered and naive advice.
This book is full of truths, strong truths about cruelty at work and what to do about it. Current internal complaint channels are inadequate. No instruction to run to HR is found here. Nor are targets told to confront their assailants. If they could have, they would have.
At last, working people are honored instead of mocked!
The information is derived from empirical research and wisdom that comes from coaching and counseling over 5,000 individuals as founders of the Workplace Bullying Institute. Ruth has a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Gary, social psychologist, is the veteran organizational consultant, management professor, and researcher. The Namies have dedicated themselves to the U.S. movement they founded since mid-1997. Their blend of compassion and outrage comes from direct experience. They've been where readers find themselves now.
WBI is also the catalyst for the U.S. Legislative Campaign for legal reform, advocating passage of the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill in states.
Every grassroots movement has its manifesto, its seminal guidebook. For the anti-bullying movement, this is the definitive book!
