The best way to prevent workplace violence is to have compassion for the potential “perpetrator”. Often the job is the only source of such an individual’s self esteem. This is especially true for those experiencing personal issues or a mental condition.

Warning signs that a co-worker may be on the verge of violence or bullying are:

  • A low tolerance for frustration, paranoia or a romantic interest in a coworker who doesn’t return that interest.
  • Behaviors such as threats, being a loner, carrying a concealed weapon or having a history of violent behavior.
  • The individual’s environment, such as personal problems, a toxic supervisor, substance abuse or workplace stress.

Research has indicated that the number one predictor of workplace violence is a past history of violent behavior.  Acts of violence generally fall under one of three levels.  Level one includes belligerence, excessive use of profanity, sexual comments, refusal to cooperate with one’s supervisor and the spreading of rumors to harm others.  This behavior can and needs to be stopped before developing into more serious behaviors. 

My programs for education and training of employees re Bullying Prevention, Stress and Anger Management are key to workplace violence prevention together with an awareness that reporting unacceptable behavior of a colleague is not being a “tattletale”.  It’s being smart.Image

Things can be chaotic enough “out there” without workplace bullying, which unfortunately  is on the upswing;  workplace bullying is a hot topic now.

 Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia defines workplace bullying:

Workplace bullying, like childhood bullying, is the tendency of individuals or groups to use persistent aggressive or unreasonable behavior against a co-worker or subordinate. Workplace bullying can include such tactics as verbalnonverbalpsychologicalphysical abuse and humiliation. This type of aggression is particularly difficult because, unlike the typical forms of school bullying, workplace bullies often operate within the established rules and policies of their organization and their society. Bullying in the workplace is in the majority of cases reported as having been perpetrated by management and takes a wide variety of forms. Bullying can be covert or overt.

The Professional Liability Underwriting Society’s seminar “Hot Topics on D&O and Employment Practices Liability” at the University of Chicago on May 10, 2012 was led by four corporate employment law specialists.

Hot Topic #2  was Workplace Bullying.  After an honest review of what our proposed anti-bullying legislation, the Healthy Workplace Bill, does for employers and for workers and what it does not do, the employer advocates suggested that employers are wise to get ahead of this trend and address workplace bullies in a proactive manner.

Balance & Power, Inc.  has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades corporately, in the the educational and private sector and now is  facilitating bullying prevention trainings  and support groups for victims of bullying.  Anger in the school, the home and the workplace has reached epidemic proportions and it is my  goal to help eliminate the situation.  I believe inner strength and being centered are keys to optimal productivity and happiness.  I am a certified Anger Management Specialist, accepted by the  US courts.

Our popular training manual  SOAR! with Resilience™ Book often accompanies these programs.

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”  – Brian Tracy

Gratitude has been getting a lot of press in self-help/development curriculums because it is essential to acknowledge personal gratefuluness in several categories to help up your forgivess quotient and helps transition you into the happiness realm! Try this: Sit back, close your eyes and visualize everything you are grateful for including several of these categories:

  • personal attributes and abilities
  • people in your life
  • material things in your life
  • a lifestyle
  • environment

Let it free flow and then write them down in columns.  Review this whenever you are feeling down, first thing in the morning and before bed.

Gratitude, Forgiveness, Happiness and Stress, Anger, Depression  

Forgiveness of one’s self for wrong doings and poor attitudes is necessary before you can forgive others, as loving oneself must happen before you are able to love others.    Forgiveness of heinous crimes is not possible for most people and not necessary. You do not need to let go of 100% anger/guilt to let go and move on.  Try forgiving a percentage, and “work on it” through EFT,  guided imagery and de-sensitization techniques, hypnosis, life coaching, therapy to get the percentage higher.  It can be helpful in acknowledging that those in question may have been doing the best they knew how or were capable of (due to personal history, mental capacity, mental illness).

Depression is almost always  supressed, repressed, not communicated (or communicated partially) anger, with or without genetic tendencies.

Anger expressed at over-the-top levels results in socially unacceptable aggressive behavior that steps over physical and/or emotional  boundaries (hitting-pushing-punching-pulling, property damage including throwing things, slamming doors and name calling, cursing-yelling. Health related symptoms of high anger and stress levels include high blood pressure, headaches, racing pulse, difficulty breathing, tight muscles.

Stress levels elevate when feeling out of control or “overwhelmed” and may cause someone to exhibit angrily acting out or be irritable.  The flip side is a depressive episode.

It is important to remember that human beings are not perfect and we all “mess-up” at times.  If you or someone you are close to  experience any of the above on an ongoing basis or regularly, it is time to get help!  Often learning simple coping strategies and techniques as well as how to  communicate effectively is all you need to do- in conjunction with a practitioner you feel comfortable with and can create a trusting relationship with.

I am a certified Anger Management Specialist, EFT Practitioner, Peak Performance Success Coach and (former) biofeedback  practitioner (this training includes relaxation techniques, de-sensitization techniques, guided imagery and self-trance).  I work with individuals and groups  via telephone, skype and face to face in Wantagh, Long Island  and go on site for corporate and organizational trainings.  Currently, a hot topic (unfortunately) is Workplace Bullying.
