Bullies Among Us needs to be put ahead of pivotal business books like Winning and Built to Last for the simple reason that identifying and throwing out the bullies is job one
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 3, 2008
Fifth Dimension Strategies announces the release of an important new business and management book, Bullies Among Us. What To Do When Work's No Fun. It is directed to business leaders, managers, and targets of bullies with the purpose of improving workplace environments and cutting business costs by effectively dealing with bullies and bullying behaviors. The author integrates her personal and professional experiences with workplace bullies and reflects her expertise as inter-culturalist, behaviorist, and educator.
Do bullies rule where you work? If you want to know how to defend yourself against workplace bullies and build a case that will expose the physical and financial damage of bullies, read Dr. Jean R. McFarland's Bullies Among Us, What To Do When Work's No Fun.
Uncivil and bullying workplace behaviors are a problem of epidemic proportions. Bullying alone costs U.S. organizations $76 billion per year, and it's on the increase, partly because of added stress attributable to the economic crisis. Because neither bullies nor their targets can be fully engaged in their work, their productivity deteriorates rapidly. When employers fail to deal with workplace bullies, they pay two of every five employees, those who have experienced bullying, for low-level productivity for months, even years. This wastes talent assets and funds. Yet, bullies are allowed to persist. Bullies Among Us tells how to
- Recognize bullying behaviors
- Take defensive action
- Develop a case against bullying
- Decide when to deal and when to bail
Targets will learn they are not to blame for bullies' behaviors toward them, and managers will learn how to deal with the extreme cost of having a bully on board.
Bullies Among Us provides tools and cites statistics that link bullying behaviors to employee engagement and the bottom line. Colonel (Ret.) Charles Schluter proclaims, "Dr. McFarland's knowledge and insight into this problem are something every manager and every leader should read. Her work is loaded with revelations, business indicators and much more."
"Bullies Among Us needs to be put ahead of pivotal business books like Winning and Built to Last for the simple reason that identifying and throwing out the bullies is job one," states Tricia Hamrin, President and CEO of UpFront Productions.
