Choice

"There are three constants in life... change, choice and principles." - Stephen Covey "Morality may consist solely in the courage of making a choice." - Leon Blum #leadersarentbullies #stepup #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct #Peace A supervisor without proper management training may also choose to bully when he or she is under intense pressure to perform, even if that pressure does not come in the form of bullying.

Competence and Confidence

"Everyone rises to their level of incompetence." –Dr. Lawrence Peter "Some people are so addicted to their misery that they will destroy anything that gets in the way of their fix." - Bryant McGill "Having a bad boss isn't your fault. Staying with one is.” — Nora Denzel #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct

Break the Cycle

Image
Being berated can lead a target to repeat the abusive behavior. When the victim of bullying behavior supervises other employees, those consequences can fall on the shoulders of that individual’s subordinates. "Be the person who breaks the cycle.   Vow to be better than what broke you—to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain." - Lori Deschene #leadersarentbullies #stepup #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct

Checks and Balances

"Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty." - Plato #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct

Feedback

Image
“ #Feedback , like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a person’s growth without destroying his roots.” – Frank A. Clark #leadersarentbullies #stepup #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct Individuals are more motivated to use #feedback delivered tactfully and constructively to improve their performance rather than negative feedback delivered in an inconsiderate manner.

Scrutinize and Address One's Shortcomings

"You will never get the truth out of a narcissist (bully).  The closest you will ever come is a story that either makes them the victim or the hero, but never the villain." - Shannon l. Alder
