Today’s workplace has its own brand of bully. Instead of fists and feet, the adult bully uses an array of psychological tactics to exert control. But interestingly, adult bullies rarely view themselves as powerful. They may even be overwhelmed – overreacting to minor setbacks, or interpreting everyday occurrences as personal slights. And the bully at work may or may not have authority; however you might find yourself motivated to appease this individual to avoid insults, criticism, or even emotional outbursts.
