Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A simple truth: to stop a bully from turning you into a Target, just firmly announce that her behavior (when she decides to test your resistance) will not be accepted without her running the risk that it will be reported immediately to both a private lawyer and the company's legal team. Gesture that she has one chance to stop now (palm of your raised hand facing her) and that she consider the consequences of continuing her childish, embarrassing behavior.

Easy to say, right? Easy to understand and dream about, too. But nearly impossible to do. If it were just that simple, you would have done it in the first place and skipped all the misery from being the bully's Target.

All the pain now felt comes not from that single missed opportunity alone, but from the postponement of taking action to right the wrong. Nipping it in the bud, people call it. But using another old saying, it's all water under the bridge, the
current situation requires you to stop the hurt now however you can.
