Social Crisis / Bullying
Under Fire And Awareness
All of our coaches were bullied in school. Perhaps that's why we are so passionate about social dynamics!
The first step is to recognize when someone is putting you in a crisis situation. Sometimes, the person doing this is quite skilled at masking their jealousy / sabotage.
Whether you're in school or at work, you must become aware of the attacks, how they are affecting you, and start identifying how see the big picture so you are not pressured off balance.
We do this by doing a quick assessment and understanding where the social pressure is coming from. We draw a stakeholder diagram to understand your relationship with your work or social group, and identify the key levers for our strategy.
Once you understand your situation, you must have a deterrent strategy. This is a strategy that moves you, even if temporarily, out of the cross hairs. Sometimes with cyber-bullying, is involves simply stepping away from the computer for a while.
If you are still "weak" socially, there are strategies to surrender temporarily, or move yourself into a position where attack is not feasible. If you are "strong" socially, there may be ways to communicate the consequences indirectly to the people attacking you.
We will work on placing levers and trip mines to deter further attacks. For example, understanding how your school or work policies govern verbal of physical abuse, and how these are usually enforced. Documenting the abuser's actions, and tactics to communicate this to the right people without it leading back to you.
Once you have deterred your attacker(s), the next step is to build up a social alliance that will prevent future attacks in the future. We will train you on how to do this in your current situation, as well as develop the leadership skills to put together a strong team wherever you go next.
Social alliances give you the power back to preempt future attacks, and install programs that have social consequence of or the abuser in the future with proper, clear communications. We can't put any more information about this publicly, but everything in this training program is meant to give you the upper hand. Generally, we advise clients from just walking away from people we refer to as "black holes". In extreme situations, clients may choose to go further, once they have established a power base.
