This case is about an employee newly promoted to manager who confronts workplace bullying from a subordinate. The subordinate slowly undermines the manager’s authority, encouraging others to do likewise. The senior director, to whom the manager reports, does not see the divisive nature of the subordinate and does not address the building interpersonal issue. The manager is gradually traumatized by the erosion of her authority. For purposes of confidentiality details of the case have been disguised.
