Because I receive many unsolicited inquiries about workplace bullying from targets, periodically I like to remind readers of the coaching services offered by the Workplace Bullying Institute. WBI now has a licensed counselor providing coaching over the phone:
Jessi Brown, a licensed counselor and WBI coach, is available for telephone coaching by appointment Mon thru Thurs. Just call 360-656-6630 to schedule a time. Her rate is a reasonable $50/hour.
As an example of the kind of help Jessi can provide, here’s a short excerpt from her piece, Changing Careers Again, Voluntarily or Not?, posted to the WBI website:
We have combed the Internet to offer you some of the most valuable career development resources in cyberspace. Changing careers can feel like an enormous undertaking; just remember to follow a few simple rules:
Rule Number 1: Break career planning and decision-making tasks into manageable chunks.
Rule Number 2: Make decisions only after taking adequate time for reflection.
Rule Number 3: Ask for help and support when you need it. You may choose to consult with a career development professional for assistance with the career planning and selection process.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached around the clock at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Those seeking to retain an employment lawyer can find online referral assistance available from the National Employment Lawyers Association, a bar association of attorneys who specialize in representing workers. Massachusetts residents also can “window shop” the attorney directory of NELA’s Massachusetts chapter.
