However, here is what you can do about bullying
Regain control by:
Recognizing that you are being bullied
Realizing that you are NOT the source of the problem
Recognizing that bullying is about control, and therefore has nothing to do with your performance.
Take action by:
Keeping a diary detailing the nature of the bullying (e.g., dates, times, places, what was said or done and who was present)
Obtaining copies of harassing / bullying paper trails; hold onto copies of documents that contradict the bully’s accusations against you (e.g., time sheets, audit reports, etc.).
