A case study gives advice on coping with workplace intimidation Experts examine a true story of intimidation at work and give advice on where to find help and support if it happens to you.
Talk about bullying at schools and you immediately think it’s a problem amongst pupils. But workplace bullying amongst teachers is perhaps more common than most people realise. So what should you do if you feel you’re being intimidated by a colleague? This programme is based on the true story of an experienced teacher who was targeted by a new headteacher. We hear the teacher’s actual words as events unfold and he’s left increasingly depressed and isolated. A panel of experts give their opinion on how the teacher should have responded and how the headteacher should have approached her desire for sweeping changes at the school. As the programme highlights, bullying can be difficult to define.
