Did you know that workplace bullying is not illegal with regards to the EEOC's definition of unprotected classes? Most reports of bullying are ignored. And those who bully get away with it. It's a form of domestic abuse and harassment on the job.
As someone who has personally experienced workplace bullying and mobbing, I can highly recommend Matt Paknis' book, Successful Leaders Aren't Bullies.
Matt has done a comprehensive review of this form of psychological and emotional abuse on the job. Every organization and company could benefit from this insightful and excellent review of what bullying is, how to address it, and how to find solutions to protect every worker and business from the devastating and catastrophic impact that bullying creates, negatively impacting employees, teams, productivity, culture, and profits.
I highly recommend this book for all business leaders and companies wishing to protect, enhance and ensure the quality, safety and reputation of their workplace, creating ethical, civilized, respectful, dignified and professional standards for optimal work environments; knowing how to recognize and address bullying in its early stages, before it escalates and impacts employees and the company.
Thank you, Matt Paknis, for your thorough research and insight into workplace bullying. By sharing your knowledge and expertise, you give hope and are helping the millions of workers who suffer in silence. There definitely needs to be stronger policies and state/national laws to protect all workers.
