Aggressive Management Can Affect A Companies Bottom-Line


Aggressive and bully bosses are so common that 17 states are working on legislation that will hold bully bosses accountable for their inappropriate behavior in the workplace.  Nothing has passed yet, however it is important because it acknowledges that employees are experiencing an epidemic level of mistreatment from higher-ups in the workplace. Poor treatment of employees is directly connected to increased absenteeism, less company loyalty and less employee work effort.  

Smart business owners and CEO's know you can't meet company goals if you have a disgruntled and fearful workforce led by a bully upper-manager.  The best antidote to counter aggressive leadership is an Emotional Intelligence-based anger management program. The payoff is considerable!  Your valued manager will have a change in behavior and will be back on the job with better leadership, performance and results from employees.  

Addressing and replacing inappropriate management behavior with a positive leadership engagement style behavior is a win-win process that creates a positive synergy between employees, upper management and can positively contribute to a companies bottom-line.

Bullying In The Workplace


Bullying in the workplace is no laughing matter and it's growing at an alarming rate. The emotional toll is costly to the person being bullied and ultimately costly to the business. More than 40% of people in the workplace have witnessed or have experienced being bullied.  72% of bullies in the workplace are bosses. 

 It is important to be clear of the difference between the tough boss and the bully boss.   After all a boss has the right and responsibility to critique and show concern about work quality. That is his job. While it never feels good to be criticized or reprimanded a tough boss ideally handles the situation professionally and appropriately so that the point is made and the problem is solved.  

The bully boss on the other hand uses a wide range of tactics with the intent to humiliate, embarrass or intimidate. The inappropriate behavior of the bully boss always unravels the targeted person and anyone who witnesses the exchange.  

The most successful approach a business can take is to order a bully boss to Emotional Intelligence based Anger Management. Emotional Intelligence based Anger Management is far more comprehensive than other interventions in changing the bully bosses behavior because it is focused on a wider range of skills that are critical for intra and interpersonal relationships.
