Targets, as you will learn throughout this book, are blessed/cursed with a strong work ethic. They just want to be “left alone” to do their work. In the most bullying-prone industries, we’ve found that many employees share a prosocial orientation. ” They want to heal the sick, teach and develop the young, care for the elderly, work with the addicted and abused in society. They are ripe for exploitation. While they focus on doing good and noble things and wait to be rewarded for their quality work, they expose their backs for the bully to sink her or his claws into.
When you attempt to ignore or avoid conflict with a Screaming Mimi, she only sees your passivity as a welcome mat. The more you try to avoid her wrath, the more she will target you. Physical reactions are common in those who work with the Screaming Mimi. Complaints include: • stomachaches • back spasms • headaches • skin reactions These symptoms frequently increase with prolonged exposure. Your productivity decreases and costly mistakes occur more often when an angry person is breathing down your neck.
Sadly, the knee-jerk, simplistic story told is that the shooter was a wacko. Reporters interview the bullying supervisor who defames the employee as a poor performer “with troubles” as the body is being loaded into the coroner’s wagon. It is more common for Targets to direct the violence inward and commit suicide. Given the roles shame and humiliation play in their lives, Targets have great difficulty getting out of bed and often suffer from depression. By the time they kill themselves, they have lost their marriages, their homes, their children, and all hope of surviving economically.
