In the workplace, an employee has many challenges to overcome if experiencing issues of workplace-stress, workplace-bullying, anger, and/or abuse.
In many cases the bully may be their immediate superior.
If an employee confronts their manager directly, they risk a lot; a. aggravating the situation; b. being side-lined in their role; c. reducing their career prospects in the organisation. These are some of the possible negative outcomes. Of course, there’s also the possibility that the manager is unaware of their behaviour & as a direct result of the employee confrontation, they change their way of being.
Workplace stress may come about because of several reasons:
Poor Work-Life Balance
International &/or National Travel for Work Purposes
Poor Line Management
