• After reflection, clarify the outcome you want to achieve. Bullying will not go away until the situation is addressed in a discreet, direct and confident manner.
• Be precise in stating your point of view; do not focus on feelings, rather the facts of how a situation was handled and how you would hope and expect to be treated in the future.
For example, if your supervisor criticizes you publically, wait for a time you two can speak privately, state your understanding of the need for correction, but request that you want it to be done privately and constructively. Review an employee handbook and state the guidelines for the situation as outlined.
• At all times try to adjust your body language to be respectful, but not timid; stand up straight and look directly at this person.
