Design Your Success Podcast

Release Date: 09/08/2018

It's safe to say many of us have experienced bullying in some way, shape or form. 


It can be cyberbullying, workplace, family, school or peer pressure.

Many people, children, teenagers, and women have a difficult time overcoming the devastating effects of bullying. Tragically, some victims of bullying turn and become bullies themselves!

Workplace bullying, as defined by the Workplace Bullying Institute is, “the repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators.” It is abusive conduct, which is threatening, humiliating and intimidating, and includes work interference – sabotage – preventing work from being done or verbal abuse. 

My guest initially tried to deal with workplace bullying by avoiding the individuals who targeted her. When she had issues with a co-worker, she retreated into her cubicle. However, when her work was sabotaged by misplacing reports and missed deadlines, she was forced to deal with the bullying directly. After all, her professional reputation was in jeopardy and she could not hide in her office hoping it would go away. 

Tune in to hear how the plot twisted when Angeline dealt with the bullying and went on to become an agent of change. Today she is empowering Christian women to be positioned for power in the workplace. Equipping them with the tools and strategies that helped her heal and overcome the effects of workplace bullying.
 
Whatever challenge you may be going through, it can change. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.
