How to deal with intimidating
They could request to set up a meeting between you and the bully, or they could handle it themselves so as to protect you from further emotional trauma.No matter what they decide to do, make it clear that you are unable to work to your best potential under the supervision of a bully.Control and power are the underlying motivations behind bullying, and if the behavior goes unaddressed, it can have severely damaging consequences.Although the target will be severely affected by the behavior, they won’t be the only person feeling the effects of bullying.Often times the target is a veteran of the workplace.Whatever the case, the fault is not on the victim, and the behavior of the bullier must be addressed.Your company might be able to offer you alternatives (such as switching managers or departments) in order to keep you there and improve your environment.And, again, as mentioned above, if the company is unwilling to protect you or work with you to keep you safe, then it might be worthwhile to leave the company.
They will also use their tactics to place blame on others and appear stronger by putting others down.
However, these cases of bullying (where the target is someone below the rank of the bullier) are also some of the most common.
To start, the behavior should be brought to the attention of your HR manager or representative, when you feel comfortable.
If you can quit in a professional manner and manage to find another company that better aligns with your values, then you’ll be happier and healthier for the decision.
Work can be stressful, and you’re not always going to agree with everyone you work with, but bullying and intimidation should never be tolerated.
