Bullying in the Workplace: What to Do?

COURSE

Bullying has been around since time began, and more or less accepted as a part of the way things are. Only recently have its victims begun to speak out publicly. In the workplace, where power disparities are the norm, bullying is sometimes seen as unavoidable and is allowed to flourish unchecked. In many cases, victims are discouraged from even naming it.

This two-module course describes the most common forms of bullying in the workplace and calculates its costs to victims and organizations; the motivations for bullying are also covered. Finally, the course offers strategies for dealing with workplace bullies. Each module concludes with a brief test-yourself quiz.
