Bullying for Beginners – Sarah Hussain
How organisations benefit from a culture of bullying and harassment and a practical guide on how to be a bigger Bully
“Intelligent, funny and passionately heart-felt. A book about work-place bullying for the twenty-first century.”
Social critique and anti self-help manual this is a comic examination of how the work place Bully goes about his or her business, constantly avoids consequences, and thrives within a blinkered organisation that accepts this behaviour as ‘normal’.
Holding up a distorted mirror to society, this book will enable managers and workers to see the true nature of the culture in which we work. It throws the spotlight on a subject that is prevalent in every aspect of our society today but one which is, too often, never confronted.
Bullying for Beginners also breaks the silence – using a tragi-comic perspective – that has long protected the Bully and the culture that supports bullying practices.
This brilliant exposé will have the workplace bullies quaking in their boots.
“Although coming out of personal experience and circumstance, this is a great analysis of a behaviour that is all too common in many spheres of life. The quotations and references are valuable as a stand alone resource.” – A Customer
If you are considering becoming a workplace bully or are indeed already practising bullying behaviour at work and wish to improve your technique, then this is the book for you.
Here you can gain a better understanding of the culture of bullying and harassment prevalent in the modern workplace, demonstrate how you can thrive and prosper as a bully in this environment and acquire useful tips and advice on how you can bully your way to success and contribute to sustaining the culture.
However, before you continue – a simple warning. While you do not need any qualifications, relevant work experience, skills, education or people skills to be a bully, bullying is a full-time occupation. There is no such thing as a part-time bully. Bullying is a tool wielded by the incompetent in service of mediocrity, and therefore the undeserved sense of power you will gain as a bully can have a dizzyingly addictive effect. In devoting yourself to bullying, you will not have time for personal development, improving your skills or finding the scope to do any actual work. But as a successful bully, you will have people to do the work for you, cover for your mistakes and clean up the mess you will inevitably leave in your wake.
So take a moment now to decide if education, learning, professionalism and people skills are important to you; if the answer is no, then keep reading!
