Why bullying at work, doesn’t work

This kind of bullying harms not only individuals but also the organisations they work for.

It creates a climate of fear, demotivates staff and stops individuals living up to their potential.

In Asia, this kind of bullying goes on more often than is reported because it takes different forms.

Bullying can be silent and tacit, sapping away at confidence without being noticed – but certainly felt.

If this kind of behaviour happens in your workplace, it may pay to run a structured supervisory training programme (we have a range of programmes from supervisory skills to Emotional Intelligence above).

What do you think causes this behaviour at work? Please feel free to add your comments below.
