Freedom Week: The Time to Break Silence About Workplace Bullying

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Bullying at work is a dirty little secret. Though it occurs with epidemic frequency (experienced by 35% of all adult Americans), it is a silent epidemic because it is too rarely discussed. Why the silence?

– personal shame by targets (who would brag about being humiliated?)
– coworkers frozen by bullies into not helping their bullied colleagues
– executives covering up for bullies they sponsor/support
– bullying is the American style of managing

Over time, fear paralyzes us all. Overcoming the inertia of inaction is difficult. We know.

But the most successful personal change plans are the ones triggered by events that suggest karma is working — a sign from above, a coincidental omen. That event becomes the excuse, the rationale, for doing something out of the ordinary.

WBI’s Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week is the reason to change how you are dealing with your bullying situation.
