How do I confront a work colleague who is a bully.

December 26, 2006 3:19am CST
A woman I work with has subtly been bullying two other women I work with. Her comments are very condescending and she makes these two women feel as if they are incapable of doing their jobs properly. I have supported them to stand up to her, but why should they be made to feel they have to change when she is the bully. I feel that maybe the boss needs to be informed as everyone knows its going on but will not say anything. Should I say something or let the two women do it themselves. Please give me some advise. I hate the injustice which is happening. This women needs to be confronted.

I think the best thing do is tell your boss what was going on and let them handle it.But your 2 friends should stand up for themselves too.People will not abuse you if you dont allow them.I hope that,that mean woman gets what she deserves.

Thanks for your suggestions. I think the 2 women need to do this. I am always the one at work who speaks out and many a time I am not backed up. I think if I do it without the 2 women as well I could see them backing down. Cheers!!!
