“There aren’t many people who are writing books about real time bullying in the workplace, which is surprising because it affects 80 million workers in the United States. When we put that in context, it’s one in two US workers affected by workplace bullying, yet it’s still known as the ‘undiscussable’.”
Carle was raised on basketball, and for 30 years, had what she calls her “dream job.” She was the head of a global sport company’s basketball division for North America—a position no woman had ever held before. But during her tenure, she says she experienced bullying so toxic, it took a toll on her health and family, so she made the difficult decision to just walk away.
“I really did not understand what was happening and what bullying was, and that’s why I wrote a book about it,” says Carle. “What the book will do, hopefully, is ignite a conversation.
I have this voice and I’m going to use it.”
During my conversation with Carle, she offers sound strategies from her book to help you recognize, understand, identify and navigate workplace bullying.
Carle does speaking engagements regularly—as well as offers leadership coaching through Oregon State University’s continuing education program. Walk Away to Win is Carle’s ultimate playbook for creating change.
It’s all part of Carle’s new hoop dreams: to no longer be bullied, and to let the bullies know where they stand.
