My belief and way of life is to behave decently to everyone without any expectation of rewards or punishment even after I’m dead. The momentary power we’re given through our careers is the anchor that steers our path to greater glory. It is our responsibility to nurture and protect the power. We are accountable for the results this power bears, whether directly or indirectly. Abuse of this power will expose our incompetency, external forces will weaken the power until it can’t be controlled. In order to control and harness the power we need to groom and keep close the good team players, We need to share the rewards, be considerate and compassionate.
When we abuse the power we drive out the good and keep the bad, for example, if you drove out everyone who has ever challanged you out of your life, how would you have grown as a person?! Surrounding yourself with ‘yes man’ aint good at all, they’ll watch you fail and laugh behind your back!

Corporate bullies, like primary school bullies all end up the same place, depressed, suicidal, bitter and at the very dirty bottom of the basement. They get stuck in the same place because that’s where they are comfortable. Ever heard of a school bully who got A grades, ever heard of a corporate bully who made it to the Forbes list? (Refer: Workplace Bullying and Forbes Corporate Bullying )
Sometimes the wise thing to do when in such a situation is to walk away with your dignity in tact. Noting of course that this is not easliy achieved as it’s not easy to hop from one job to another. However walking away yields far more power that sticking it out or tyring to fight it from within. This leaves the abuser stranded, whom will they torment and torture?
Before you play victim, bear in mind that you’re so powerful and intimidating that someone has to put up an act when dealing with you. They have to sources something outside their being to interact with you. They have to sit and strategise… Read Leader without a title a great read that teaches us that you don’t need a title to lead and be powerful! Power lies within you, go for it and SHINE!!
Is the devil so engraved in the heart and mind of a bully that they can’t tell right from wrong? When people take food out of your childs mouth just to remind you who’s boss…in the meantime, never take anything said or done against you personally. Abuse is never about you, ever!
Your duty as a Christian is to pray and hope that they (bullies) finds error in their ways and that they corrects their behaviour because hell awaits…
