Women's success in the workplace has given rise to a new phenomenon -- the nightmare female boss, the Daily Mail reported.
Experts claim that an increasing number of women in positions of power are bullying colleagues and employees.
A survey by the British Association of Anger Management reveals that a fifth of female bosses admit to shouting or being verbally abusive at work.
Ten percent of women executives admit to blaming and shaming colleagues when things go wrong.
However, almost 90 percent of those surveyed said they had experienced an increase in stress, with more than 60 per cent citing poor management as the reason for their anxiety.
