High profile self-described bully Lance Armstrong teaches disbelievers much about the bullying process. Follow our series: Lessons From Lance.
The ‘System’ Makes Them Do It
Bullies do not offer themselves voluntarily for scrutiny. Given the fact that the WBI-Healthy Workplace Bill has not yet become law in any U.S. state, most of bullying is legal. Without a law, employers don’t have to have airtight policies to prevent or correct it. So, only about 3% try to do a legitimate job of cracking down on offenders.
That means bullies can harm others with impunity. They face little to no risk of negative consequences. There is a mismatch between the lying, cheating, conniving bully and the fact that nothing bad happens to them. Bullies cheat by stealing ideas, credit for work not done, by gathering personal details about their targets’ lives to use against them later, blaming targets for errors that never occurred, and a host of other nefarious tactics.
