Bullying is a huge problem in society. Many people believe that it’s something that takes place just in school and online, but it’s also unfortunately present in the work environment, as many listeners will likely agree. This episode looks at the topic of workplace bullying, covering the definition and causes of it, the extended damage it can inflict (including the damage “taken home”), and the pattern that workplace bullying often follows. Also discussed is “mobbing,” where entire groups of employees are being bullied. Listen to this episode to learn just how widespread workplace bullying is, and about instances where perceived bullying really isn’t bullying at all.
