Lots of people have contacted me asking about this diagram. The Power and Control Wheel was originally developed by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project in Duluth, Minnesota. When I came across it I was struck by the similarity between the actions it described and some of the features of workplace bullying that I was researching at the time.
The diagram displays the way in which specific attributes of workplace bullying can mirror those of domestic abuse. This particular wheel was developed in response to reports of women abused by men, and thus is not gender-neutral.
In fact, the Duluth Model uses a number of different sorts of wheels to illustrate the issues it deals with day to day.
