How do we coach a bully senior manager? One of our senior managers is a very smart man who over the years has contributed a lot to the growth of our firm. He is, however, a bully—and fully aware of it. He understands how being unable to control his emotions and bad behaviors hurts his colleagues, as well as his friends and family, yet he is not to willing to change for fear of “losing face” with colleagues. He is considered the “king of the firm” and no one seems willing to try and coach him.
