How may I intervene when my friend and co-worker is bullying my other coworker?

Hi Brad,

Do you believe that what your co-worker is doing is okay? If you don't then you need to explain this to your co-worker, that you BELIEVE that his behavior is not okay and give specifics why.

You need to speak to what you BELIEVE and not attack him for being a bad person. If he is your friend and sees that you don't like his behavior than he might choose to stop the bullying.

And if he doesn't, perhaps you should reconsider the friendship.

Good luck! Mitzi

First of all, I think it is amazing that you do not stand by idly while other person is being bullied.

You can talk to your friend about why they are doing whatever it is that they are doing to your coworker. Try to understand the situation. It will be a lot easier to calm down your friend and get him on your side than the other coworker.

As for the coworker who is being a bully, you can talk to him too and see what is going on.

If you cannot stop them from bullying your coworker, you can always go to your boss or manager and tell them what is going on.

One thing to note is not to get hostile with the two people bullying. Confront them in a calm, natural, friendly way. Be genuinely curious about what is going on to see how you can stop them from bullying. Don't fuel them, rather get them on your side to stop bulling.
