Without a doubt, Andrea Needham's "Workplace Bullying: Business Costly Secret" is the best book I've read on the topic, and certainly the one book I'd most recommend to business leaders. She carefully uses stories she gleaned from a great many personal interviews. She documents the damages done to them and gives them sage advice with understanding, compassion and a significant measure of encouragement prodding them forward towards relief and recovery.

In order to make her case against employer tolerance of workplace abuse, Needham then intelligently couples her fieldwork with her considerable experience as a businesswoman and an international HR expert. For the first time in this subject area, she constructs models detailing the avoidable costs businesses generally suffer due to this dark and frequently hidden phenomenon, and demonstrates how employers can calculate their own cost factors.

Demonstrating leadership, Needham provides concrete examples to follow, she examines select employers who have shown leadership and successfully overcome abuse

Captures brilliantly the reality of bullying that exists in the NZ workplace which is not only ignored by HR but often supportive of the bully exacerbating the psychological harm to the target.
