The Positives of Having an Explosive Bully Boss

I wish bullying didn’t occur anywhere, but especially at work. The U.S. employee spends an average of 47 hours a week at work. That’s a good part of our lives and we should spend it in a positive and productive environment.

One piece of advice I have to someone who is being bullied is to get talking.

Go to human resources, your in-house health department or someone you trust, and talk with them about the situation. Learn their policies in handling it and discuss options to diffuse or eliminate it.
