© Kitt & Corbett Organisational Responses to Bullying Dismissive Minimum Compliance Reactive Proactive
© Kitt & Corbett Bullied victims generally do not want retribution or revenge. They want the bullying to stop. They want to get on with their work They want peace in their lives.
© Kitt & Corbett Organisational Beliefs & Attitudes Dismissive The behaviours that constitute bullying are an inevitable part of working life. Bullying is not a form of abuse. People may bully, but they get the job done. The people who complain of bullying are weak, timid, oversensitive &/or paranoid. Some people are “victims” & would be bullied irrespective of where they are or whom they are with. People who complain of bullying are at best nuisances, at worst troublemakers & should be silenced. Bullying is the flavour of the month…if we ignore it it will go away. People should put up, shut up or get out!
© Kitt & Corbett Organisational Beliefs & Attitudes Bullying is a nuisance. We have to be seen to do something. If we do the required minimum we will be covered. Bullying behaviour in itself is not the problem, the complaints are the problem. This is a sufficient response…this is all we need to do. The organisation has no real role in resolving issues informally, people with complaints should put them in writing. Minimum Compliance
© Kitt & Corbett Organisational Beliefs & Attitudes Bullying is a problem. We have to do something. It is sufficient to deal with bullying problems on an individual, case by case basis, without reference to the organisational context in which the behaviour takes place. Having good policies & procedures is an effective & adequate response. Having sanctions for breaches of policies & procedures is an adequate deterrent for bullying. We can’t really prevent bullying, we can only deal with it. Reactive
© Kitt & Corbett Organisational Beliefs & Attitudes Bullying is a form of abuse, with serious individual & organisational effects. We have to do something. Creating a bullying free environment will have knock on beneficial effects on effectiveness & productivity. The organisation’s culture & climate can prevent or promote bullying. Bullying will not thrive in an organisation with a positive effective work environment. The organisation’s response must cover prevention, intervention & minimisation. Problems are more quickly resolved when aired & dealt with than when repressed or hidden. It is the organisation’s responsibility to provide a psychologically safe working environment. Proactive
© Kitt & Corbett When bullying occurs... Dismissive Minimum compliance Reactive Proactive High stress, resentment, frustration, anger Negative atmosphere Poor productivity, high turnover Expectation of resolution Disappointment, disillusionment, frustration Escalation of problems Opportunities for resolution Addressing symptoms Potential for re-occurrence of problems High level of resolution Addresses causes Less likelihood of problems re-occurring

© Kitt & Corbett People “deal with” bullying better When; they recognise the behaviour at an early stage They have access to supportive/effective procedures Bullying is an aberration rather than the norm
© Kitt & Corbett The organisation understands bullying as destructive behaviour that can affect anyone The organisation has a genuine and demonstrated intolerance of bullying All inappropriate behaviour is considered a performance issue and challenged as such
