Creating a Kinder and Gentler Workplace
There is a heightened awareness of the menace of workplace bullying. And that’s good. Bullying, as defined by the American Psychological Association, is “a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person injury or discomfort.” Bullying may take the form of physical contact, words or more subtle actions. It occurs in face-to-face interactions, group settings, as well as in the virtual world.
