It is less likely that there will be instances of bullying and harassment if there’s a positive culture where the people working for the company respect and value one another in order to achieve success in the workplace. A manager can play a key role in shaping a positive team culture both by modeling the behaviors they want and by enforcing them.

What is intimidation and workplace bullying?

There is no denying the fact that bullying is a form of violence no matter what form it takes. It involves intimidating and controlling other people, whether by physical, emotional or psychological control.

It can take the form of constant snide remarks about another team member, criticizing ideas pitched by another team member, or expressing hostility toward another team member. It is also common for bullies to make an effort to exclude certain members from team meetings, activities or project work.

It’s common for bullies to use indirect intimidation or nonverbal threats at work instead of direct threats. They are very good at refraining from engaging in direct physical or sexual harassment, yet making their victims feel continuously excluded, anxious, and uncomfortable at the same time.

Sadly, workplace bullies are a common sight at work today, and they are generally allowed to get away with their disgusting behaviour simply due to the fact that nobody wants to deal with them and no one can stand their behaviour. It is common for these types of negative personalities to feed on confrontation and drama, whereas for someone who does not relish confrontation it may seem impossible to stand up. It might even seem impossible to maintain your dignity.

A further step which needs to be taken is your responsibility as a manager of the team and you have an obligation to take further action in order to address workplace bullying. Stop bullies from interrupting others excessively or being aggressive; get them to stop mocking other people’s ideas and suggestions; work hard to create an inclusive work environment in your organization.

Taking action as soon as you are aware is that, responding in a rational and appropriate mannerwill show all parties your neutrality. Embrace the fact that you cannot control what bullies do or say, but you can control your response to them.

All complaints of harassment should be taken seriously, and they should be addressed immediately.Every report deserves your attention.
