Synopsis: "Strengths' book is a clear picture of workplace bullying in academics" ~ Drew Mitchell the Examiner "... severe examples of workplace bullying and harassment." ~ Steven Hunt, Senior Producer, SDC Video Productions, Ottawa, Canada "The arc of Bravery, Bullies, & Blowhards: Lessons Learned in a Montana Classroom inspires hope." Torii Bottomley ~Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Bill Illustrates the dysfunctional atmosphere in one Montana school district. But, in reality, it could probably be any school district in any state of the union. Every school has its secrets. Every school has its malcontents. In order to write this book, the author had to take a long journey in search of understanding. Why did the administration react the way they did? What were the underlying problems that led to their strange behavior? What was it about her background and personality that led her to react as she did? At the end of the journey she realized that school safety was paramount. And parents, teachers and taxpayers all need to understand the pervasive atmosphere found in many schools. It was an atmosphere in which petty tyrants often rule. Those that wish to gain a better understanding of the after-effects of physical or psychological abuse will find this book to be a useful tool. The story is told with candor and honesty and may evoke emotions that are rarely expressed by a target. Sadly, the actions and/or inactions by management are often used to destroy talented and effective employees and many perpetrators remain employed — or promoted. Unfortunately, many will suffer after-effects and will never enter the workplace again. Some will develop PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)—the invisible injury. Bravery, Bullies, and Blowhards: Lessons Learned in a Montana Classroom attempts to lead the reader to that “aha” moment in which they can first understand and then stop abuse and/or bullying in the workplace.

From the Author: ABOUT THE BOOK  

Bravery, Bullies & Blowhards: Lesson Learned in a Montana Classroom, contains detailed accounts of the author's experiences after a mentally unstable stranger followed her to her classroom. It clearly illustrates the dysfunctional atmosphere in one Montana school district. But, in reality, it could probably be any school district in any state of the union. Every school has its secrets. Every school has its malcontents.
In order to write this book, she  had to take a long journey in search of understanding. Why did the administration react the way they did? What were the underlying problems that led to their strange behavior? What was it about her background and personality that led her to react as she did?

From the beginning to the end of her journey she realized that school safety was paramount. And that parents, teachers and taxpayers needed to be more aware of the pervasive atmospheres found in many schools --environments in which petty tyrants often rule.  In the past decade school and workplace bullying has become big business. Something that was virtually unknown when the author started her journey.

For the people that have fought the fight for decades the consequences have been costly. Aware that there is still a need for better understanding the author attempts to tell her story. It is her hope that her story will provide a greater understanding of school/workplace bullying and harassment as well as help change the climate and leadership in our schools and workplaces.
