In this month’s episode of Business Diaries, we visit a personal story shared by Jay Sahota about bullying in the workplace, and how it affected him physically and mentally.
Our storyteller this month is the senior partner of Jarmans Solicitors, with 19 years of experience resolving disputes and giving his clients peace of mind.
Among many key takeaways from his experience, Jay shared how bullying impacted his life and how he managed to see the light at the end of the tunnel. He describes how his personal resilience helped him at the time and how this experience shaped who he is right now and the values “Honest, humble and hungry” are firmly instilled in his own business practice at Jarmans.
In addition, he shares some tips on how to rebuild and look after yourself if you have been bullied.
In our discussion with Jay, podcasts hosts Lisa Settle and I reflect on:
- How bullying in all forms is not okay
- Bullying in the workplace is one of the most common types of bullying
- The physical and mental abuse caused by bullying
- How bullying affects a person’s thinking and perspective long after the incident itself
- How one can start again in life after a traumatic bullying experience
A key theme of this month’s episode is, as Jay says “You don’t know what you want until you know, what you don’t want”, and “how previous experiences can shape your decisions, to ensure you are in the right situation for you.”
This episode is a touching story – packed with lessons, tips, and key learnings.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
