Bystander vs. Upstander - Which Are You?
Even if standing up for a target of workplace bullying is risky for bystanders, they can support the target just the same. Words of sympathy and support in private to the target go a long way.
Remind targets to keep detailed notes. Help them realize they don't deserve to be bullied. Be a trusted confidante. Follow the example of upstander Darnella Frazier who became a critical resource in the George Floyd trial.
