Transcend Your Boss: Zen and the Difficult Workplace
Finally, help for targets of workplace abuse, bullying and discrimination! Zen theory and meditation help targets stay on the job in a hostile environment while pursuing a complaint, looking for another job or gathering evidence for a lawsuit.
Nevada (I-Newswire) August 26, 2013 - Many workers today are stuck in a difficult workplace, where they suffer potentially severe health endangering stress.
A new book, Transcend Your Boss: Zen and the Difficult Workplace, helps targets of workplace abuse, bullying and discrimination work in a hostile environment long enough to pursue a complaint or find another job.
"The stress gets so bad that many targets of workplace abuse quit because they just can't take it anymore," said author Patricia G. Barnes of Reno, NV. "Or stress causes them to behave impulsively or in a self-destructive manner. They hit the send button on a blistering email that the boss uses as evidence against them."
Barnes is a judge and attorney and the author of Surviving Bullies, Queen Bees & Psychopaths in the Workplace (2013). She writes a syndicated legal blog called, When
the Abuser Goes To Work (http://abusergoestowork.com).
Barnes says scientific research shows meditation provides relief from anxiety and stress.
Meditation helps workers gain clarity and to focus upon a reasoned and constructive solution to
their problems. She said meditation is easily adapted to the workplaces.
Barnes says the poor economy and high unemployment hold many workers hostage to bad jobs. For example, she says, older workers who lose their job are unemployed longer and, if they do find new employment, are paid far less. "Everyone knows it's hard for older workers to quit so they are an easy target for bullying," she said.
Workers who remain in stressful jobs risk significant harm to their mental and physical health. Barnes says overwhelming medical research shows that targets of bullying and abuse suffer short-term health effects, including anxiety, insomnia, exhaustion and depression. New research suggests that workers who are exposed to stress over a many years may develop chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease.
Transcend Your Boss: Zen and the Difficult Workplace provides simple instruction for workplace meditation, and offers guided meditations designed for workers who in a difficult workplace. The book also explores Zen theory, which is based on the 2,500 year old teachings of the Buddha.
"The fool thinks he has won a battle with harsh speech, but knowing how to be forbearing alone makes one victorious" - the Buddha.
