Bullying - Free Self Assessment

August 15, 2017
By Michele Eby

Bullying in the workplace. We know it’s out there. We feel compassion for the victims. And, we wonder how it happens in our modern, society. We’re not cave dwellers after all.

The truth is, workplace bullying is a serious problem in many organizations. It's different from everyday conflict in the workplace -- it's the bullying behavior that takes it to another level. Managers and employees don't always see the behaviors they employ in the workplace as bullying. 

Sometimes the behaviors managers characterize as strong leadership and the behaviors employees think of as strong team work, are power and control tactics that can bring down a team, department, or company.

We all want to be successful at work. Creating a culture of respect that is free of harassment and bullying--where high-performing teams can flourish--begins with an internal spotlight.

To help create this culture, we offer a free self-assessment to help you assess your potential for bullying in the workplace. Keep in mind this assessment is only a quick snapshot, but we recommend being both honest and open-minded. A little thought about your responses may reveal things you didn’t see in yourself.

The first step toward change is self-awareness. Kudos to you for taking the first step!

Awareness of bullying is one of the steps to creating a respectful workplace, and one of the contributors to conflict in the workplace that can lead futher into more serious forms of disharmony.
