Workplace bullying can be placed in the context of other forms of negative employment conduct. Join us November 15, 2011, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m., ET for Workplace Bullying. In this webinar, employers will find out about its prevalence, its defining characteristics, the profiles of the players, and the reactions elicited from witnesses and organizations. Practical strategies will be provided for staff and managers to minimize the effects of bullying in organizations where there has not yet been a commitment made for a comprehensive, systemic solution.

In 90 minutes, Dr. Gary Namie, President of Work Doctor®, Inc., will provide attendees with practical guidance on how to:

  • Recognize the symptoms produced by bullying behavior
  • Identify three or more workplace conditions that precipitate bullying
  • Detect several physical and psychological health consequences of bullying
  • Distinguish between adequate and inadequate institutional responses to bullying complaints
  • Separate personality-based/dispositional explanations from workplace culture-based causes
  • Name and apply two or more interpersonal techniques that mitigate bullying
  • Explain to administrators the rational for, and benefits of, a systemic solution

Attendees to this webinar will also receive 1.0 CPE or 1.5 HRCI credits.
