We all deal with different, and sometimes difficult, personalities at work.  But what do you do if the personality is a bully?  Have you have ever encountered someone who berates you, deliberately excludes you from information, sets you up for failure, mocks you, points out your flaws in public, creates rumors about you at work, or any other deliberate act of negativity toward you?


What has your experience been and what did you do to resolve it?

There more this. There is a new term and perspective to workplace bullies and it''s known as professional harassment. That''s the reason why some of this group of professionals get up the corporate ladder at an early age coupled with crisis management achievement, for which the source of the crisis was orchestrated by themselves to plant the seeds of biased admiration.

And there in lies the scalability and accountability of a fragile foundation for any institution.

In my personal experience with this problem I have noticed bullies tend to find their way to the top of companies. Over the past 10 years I have seen executive level managers, directors and even a president bully other employees and direct reports. Dealing with this problem has become an extra challenge in my daily routine. I am one who is ready to hit the ground running on projects but bully's tend to want to play their childish games and do it in a fashion that it becomes a hindrance and extra burden to getting work done and goals accomplished. Bullies are good at portraying themselves as a saint to the people who they report too. I have also noticed in my personal experiences with bully’s they tend to project their faults on to others, for example: They are usually the one’s causing chaos but they tell everyone around them their victims are causing the chaos. This makes it very difficult to defend yourself especially if the bully is in a position of high authority.
