 moreThis happens in companies or organizations and employees are often judged inaccurately and punished, even dismissed from their jobs.

I've observed this 3 times with people I've spoken to in the last few months.

Look at this excerpt from a write up on the movie Sully, a movie about the airplane that landed on the Hudson River out of necessity and all 155 on board survived.

The pilots were questioned for poor judgment and performance, which could have greatly damaged their careers.

"It took 15 months before federal crash investigators concluded that Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger and co-pilot Jeff Skiles made the right decision to ditch the plane in the Hudson River (The Wall Street Journal).

"Until I read the script, I didn't know the investigative board was trying to paint the picture that [Sully] had done the wrong thing," said director Clint Eastwood.

"They were kind of railroading him into [believing it was his] fault, and that wasn't the case at all" (EW.com).

Summary - I have also used that phrasing, being "railroaded" when I've spoken to people in the workplace who have sought my help.

Employers succeed because people seek assistance too late or never for the "machine" of company or organizational power imbalance they will face and endure.

Your only choice may be to leave as quickly as possible -- especially if the company supports that bully repeatedly & has already exited several of the bully's targets."

Babs Ryan

Summary - this has been my professional observation as well. While companies seem to be comfortable allowing this type of behavior, employees often don't know how to effectively, ethically, morally respond to 1) the bully's behavior (often hidden from view) or 2) the dismissive, denying response from leadership.

The black-and-white choices appear to be to resign or seek legal assistance yet those polar opposites of the spectrum are not the only choices.

There are other choices, like requesting mediation or seeking out a conflict management professional (not an attorney, because they are not always needed nor likely to be able to help in the situation you find yourself suffering) to be your advocate.

Look at this story about how hostility cost this business badly in legal, financial and reputation outcomes.

Your decisions, my assistance

"Justice & fairness happen far more often in mediation than they do in court, and nearly everyone appreciates being listened to and retaining control over outcomes, rather than denouncing each other & hoping a judge will see their position." 

Ken Cloke

"Mediation helps understand the reasons behind the conflict and agrees on ways of future interaction and behavior." 

Caroline McEnery

"There are so many problems with the law. For example, the law is quite formal, but the best problem-solving is done informally; it is highly logical, but every conflict has an emotional component that needs to be addressed; it is incredibly expensive and time consuming, but that puts it beyond the reach of many people who need help; its purpose is to decide which of two sets of facts are true, but it produces unfair results when both sets of facts are true.

Ethical mediating of business, workplace and personal disputes. Think mediating first to mitigate damage or in instances where you are considering court. You will be grateful you did.

Would you like me to lead a process that is more private, confidential and allows you greater control and flexibility in creating a satisfying agreement?

Want an approach that is non-binding unless you and the other person or parties agree you want it to be a legally-binding agreement? 

Want a solution that is more effective, efficient and cost-effective, providing you more value and less risk?

Still want your interests protected?

Want a stronger likelihood of success, be less harmed and become more satisfied?

Good news - All those are very possible and with collaboration, likely. 

Did you know - I do not claim or have authority over the decision making. 

In your mediation, you and the other person/party share that power. I help you facilitate the problem solving in a more respectful, civil, smarter, effective manner.

Let's work together more more effectively and efficiently through your dispute.
