Workplace bullying is getting plenty of attention this week. Thoughts from a Management Lawyer describes the results of the U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey 2007 (in PDF) in "Workplace Bullying is Widespread". And Dumb Little Man - Tips for Life has advice on "How to Deal with a Workplace Bully".
Finally, the secret's out: everyone's talking about mediator-blogger Geoff Sharp's "40 sites in 40 minutes", a whirlwind tour of Geoff's favorite stops in the ADR cyber-neighborhood.
