Bullying as a form of human aggression has been found to take place in organisations, workplaces, voluntary groups, universities and particularly in schools (Lutgen-Sandvik, Hood, Jacobson and Ryan, 2016; Data, Cornell and Wang, 2016; Lapidot-Lefler and Dolev-Cohen, 2015; McGuire, 2013). Bullying is a problem that transcends social boundaries and can result in devastating psychological and emotional trauma including low self-esteem, poor academic performance, depression, and, in some cases, violence and suicide (Parker & Asher, 1987; Sharp, 1995; Olweus, 1993; Rigby, 1998; Hunt and Jensen, 2006). This article explores the topic of bullying from a historical, sociaological, psychological and educational perspective drawing conclusions about the role of leadership as a core aspect of bullying prevention and intervention in schools and workplaces.
