Bullying is rife in school and even at university, but let’s not forget that bullying in the work place is incredibly common too. Please don’t accept bullying as a normal part of your work culture. If a person makes you feel uncomfortable, hurt, uneasy, nervous or you witness bullying – please record and report the experience. Only by shining the spot light on bullies can we stop their toxic behaviour. If we all stand together, the bullies lose power. But first we must have the courage to say NO.
I wanted to share this new app. It’s a great tool to help you document bullying behaviour! Bullying can happen to anybody at any level of their career or whatever stage in life they happen to be in. Bully Buster is for you to say NO in your life to Bullying.
How it works:
First of all you decide who you want to know what is going on.
You then put in your contacts so that you can choose.
Bully Buster gives you a hand with the right kind of information – who was there, what happened and how you felt.
- If you are at School and witness bullying, you can email your teacher and not be picked on.
- If you are at work you can say what happened, who was there and how it made you feel.
If you wake up in the middle of the night or feel anxious after the event you can document that too – sometimes this goes to show just how greatly the bullying affects your performance.
Bully Buster does not replace talking to people, but sometimes if you are uncomfortable you can write how you feel better than explaining – it is a tool to help you – use it to change your life for the better!
Why this app?
I am an educated and smart woman whose career is something to be proud of – yet I have experienced bullying many times!
I have learnt unless you document your treatment – people in authority (teachers, bosses, Board members) don’t believe you – Bullies can be very charming!
According to WorkSafe Victoria, ”Workplace bullying is characterised by persistent and repeated negative behaviour directed at an employee that creates a risk to health and safety.”
This app helps you document how you feel and what happened to see if you do have a case!
This app does not give you any advice – it just helps you document your particular circumstances in order to get the appropriate advice.
