Overview

Bullying in the workplace by coworkers or bosses occurs so often that it's almost become a new normality. What lacks out there is a practical guide for the bullied on addressing these uncomfortable situations.

You may feel it's a small enough issue to take to Human Resources but big enough that you can't jump out of bed with enthusiasm to get to work. This book also guides you through those in-between Bullying situations.

After working for several years in fast paced teams in the corporate world where Bullying was witnessed, experienced and addressed, this book was put together as a handy guide for you to deal effectively with Bullying.

Many of us are experiencing bullying at workplace in one way or another. Let's face it, most of us don't have the money, time or energy to go down the formal legal routes to tackle a Bully at work. This book is for those who face the minute questions of handling bullying at work every day. It is a comprehensive guide, which empowers, comforts and helps you navigate the workplace bullying maze.

Origins of the book

As a true millennial globetrotter, I moved jobs multiple times over the past decade between Consultancy firms, Banks and Global Corporations across different countries. At each place I worked, I noticed one common issue – bullying at work. Sometimes it was overt and other times it was covert. I was a witness, victim and challenger of workplace bullying. Colleagues, friends and family were also going through similar ordeals of being bullied or mobbed at work. The realisation hit me that workplace bullying was a pervading problem across the world.

However, nobody tells you, for example, what actually happens if you decide to escalate bullying to human resources or how to handle conversations with your boss when you are being bullied by a colleague.

Therefore, I wanted to use all the practical experiences I have had and heard from others to put together this handy guide for you. This book helps you right from the beginning of your trials with bullying, to coping with its after-effects. It also encompasses the wider impacts of workplace bullying on other areas of your life.

During the course of researching for this book, I reached out to many professionals who worked in powerful corporations, startups and everything in between, to find out about their experiences of bullying at work. In the interviews and Whatsapp groups, raw emotions and the real challenges of handling bullying at work came out. Names have been changed to protect privacy but the struggles are very real. Some of us were successful to handle bullying, some of us failed miserably and some suffered silently.

Nevertheless, all these experiences taught us valuable lessons for our careers and lives. With this wealth of information, I decided to write this book, which is a combination of advice, empowerment and peppered with real life stories of handling bullying at work. There are also (fun) exercises at the end of each chapter to help you reach workable solutions.
