Leave No Room for Adults Who Bully

Leave No Room for Adults Who Bully

Incivility in the workplace is as common as bread and butter throughout the world. However, incivility itself is not bullying. Incivility is people being rude, discourteous, and having a general disregard for others. An adult who bullies has a...

I have never been a victim of bullying in the workplace but I have seen others endure it. At my last place of employment, we reported bullies to HR. It must have worked because the bullying either stopped or the bully was terminated.

I found that bullying in the workplace is not just limited to the non-titled employees. I have seen managers bully managers in order to promote themselves.

Unfortunately, some adults refuse to grow up and accept responsibility for their actions.

I read a book a long time ago about "Mavericks", those people in the office that drive things forward. In today's lingo i believe this character type would be known as a bully. The book went on to discuss how a maverick could influence change and success within an organization but at great cost to culture.

Now this was back in the day when the business cycle was considered to be in seven years. I haven't seen the latest cycle analyses but would ass-ume that it is much shorter. From a leadership perspective...Economics, markets and regulation drive change very fast these days and getting existing staff too change is difficult at best and very time consuming. Worth the effort though.

Once a leader discovers change is necessary then an internal clock gets started. This also happens in our personal life. This clock always seems to indicate you are behind.

I don't offer this as an excuse for poor corporate culture management. To win the change war and loose that which made you successful is really quite stupid when we stand outside the issues. I have watched companies ditch humanity in survival mode to experience a quick fix only to fail in the end.

Leaders today need too keep in mind the "why" and the "how" matter in execution of change.

I agree, some are unfixable, my boss being one of them. I'm glad you found a way to deal with your former employer, not an easy task!

Sarah Elkins - ah, dinner time ramblings. Brings back funny (sad and stressful at the time) memories. One time, I said to mom and dad -- "are you listening to what you are saying? You two are talking about two totally different things" -- I do not recall the argument, but it was funny things were not matching at all.

Similar to too many movies about dysfunctional families. Not quite like Edith and Archie and Meathead and "Little Girl" - but close . . . .
