Commentary and Checklist
- Never abuse your power. If you bully your employees, you injure yourself, your employees and your employer.
- Watch for bullying. Verbal mistreatment of employees in front of other employees or customers is a common form of bullying.
- Look for the signs of bullying. A common sign of bullying is a higher turnover rate of employees who report to one manager than for those reporting to other managers.
- If your position at your employer permits you to do so, confront bullies under your management. Specifically address what actions you believe are an abuse of power and why.
- If you are not in a position to address bullying on your own or you feel uncomfortable doing so, you should make your human resource department aware of bullying as soon as possible.
