How can I be part of the solution?
I have been working at a my new job for a few months now. Everything was going great until one of my co-workers started going through a difficult time in her personal life. She has had some tragic events take place and is having a hard time dealing with it. She has been taking out her anger and greif on people she works with. She tries to get people in trouble and feels free to yell at anyone who does not do what she says when she says to do it. She has been very sensitive and aggresive. I recently saw her messing with a co-workers desk. It looked like she was trying to spit on her desk! I was so shocked I didn't know what to do. To make matters worse their were customers in our lobby within few of the whole thing. I decided to talk to HR about it and they notified my boss. Now we are having a meeting to address the issue. No one wants to come forward because they don't think it will solve anything. How can I be a part of the solution without being the bad guy who told?
