Workplace Bullying

Workplace bullying is a common problem regardless of your position or status, whether it be verbal bullying, sexual harassment, being overlooked for a promotion, being left out of group discussions, or having your role and tasks changed while you’re on holiday without consultation, or a host of other types of activities which have a serious psychological impact that is significant and pervasive.

Often the notion of your sensitivity comes into question, particularly as you know you’re not being paranoid. So you might feel depressed, your self-esteem and confidence may take a beating, and you may lose motivation and focus on your work, eventually leading to performance problems. Often those in these situations find it hard, if not impossible, to stand up to the bully – usually a manager or someone more superior in the food-chain.

It’s important for you to remember that you are not alone. You have the support and assistance of the team at Life Resolutions Windsor. We can help you manage your reactions better, to make better decisions, to help you identify what your options are, and to reach some sort of resolution to the bullying. Some strategies may including helping you manage your mood or anxiety, being more confident and assertive, and learn how to take back your power and no longer tolerate the bullying, especially when it is accepted as part of the workplace culture.
