Workplace Bullying Article

A December 2015, Huffington Post article discusses strategies for effectively approaching management about a workplace bullying problem. Here is the critical advice:

“To get powerful figures on your side, you have to build genuine, trusting relationships with them first. The secret is to appeal to their interests. That’s right. If you want management to “tune into” workplace bullying, make sure you’re broadcasting on their favourite station: WIFM (What’s In It For Me?). What I mean is that you have make the case that helping you will help them too.”

In my experience, this is very helpful advice and plays a significant role in the likelihood of success when filing a complaint about your workplace or project bully.
