Signs You are Getting Bullied, Mobbed, or Harassed at Work.
You are not alone. Mobbing, bullying and harassment is at an all time high. Worse, according to a survey conducted by the American Psychological Association (APA), 58% of people in stress take it out on their loved ones. Thus, families and loved ones are impacted by bullying, mobbing and harassment. It’s a vicious cycle.
At the heart of bullying, mobbing and harassment is the worst form of power struggles. These can become toxic and, in extreme cases, lethal.
Signs of these type of power struggles can include:
- Having your communication blocked (being ignored; repeatedly interrupted; yelled at or scolded)
- Being treated as invisible (people stop speaking to you; you are physically isolated; access to others has been barred)
- Having your reputation attacked (people spread rumors; you are spoken to in derogatory terms; your mental stability is questioned; your lifestyle is attacked)
- Being threatened (this can range from physical attacks, stalking, outright harassment, and threats to being asked to complete dangerous and/or physically strenuous tasks)
In addition, up to 77% of people feeling such stress begin experiencing actual health problems and 73% report mental distress. Many of these cases can be successfully treated. However, in severe cases, effects can be long-lasting and untreatable. The worst cases have been lethal. So do something now before it get worse.
