Join Catherine Mattice Zundel for an in-depth discussion in this video Bullying behaviors, part of What To Do When You Are Bullied at Work.
- So, what do bullying behaviors look like?…I'd like to break them into three categories,…communication, humiliation, and manipulation.…Check out the exercise files…for a laundry list of behaviors in each category,…and I'll share some example here.…Aggressive communication refers to belittling people,…shouting, sending emotionally charged emails,…criticism, and more.…It can also refer to body language.…For example, one person I coached was known…for standing up in staff meetings…to intimidate people who disagreed with him.…
