    WORKPLACE BULLIES ARE TOO EXPENSIVE TO KEEP!!

    The Workplace Bullying Institute defines Workplace Bullying as:

    Repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators that takes one or more of the following forms:

    • Verbal abuse
    • Offensive conduct/behaviors (including nonverbal) which are threatening, humiliating, or intimidating
    • Work interference — sabotage — which prevents work from getting done

    Workplace Bullying...

    • Is driven by perpetrators' need to control the targeted individual(s).
    • Is initiated by bullies who choose their targets, timing, location, and methods.
    • Requires consequences for the targeted individual
    • Escalates to involve others who side with the bully, either voluntarily or through coercion.
    • Undermines legitimate business interests when bullies' personal agendas take precedence over work itself.
    • Is akin to domestic violence at work, where the abuser is on the payroll.

    Workplace Bullying is serious abusive conduct that destroys workers' health and productivity and undermines your organization's success.

    • • Leaders must commit to stop workplace bullying
    • • It's not a "personality clash," or conflict
    • • It is non-physical workplace violence
    • • Our solutions are better than Anger Management and training
