Workplace Bullying

Back To Matters at Work

Workplace bullying is often hard to identify—and even harder to manage. It comes in many forms, occurs at every level, and often goes unnoticed and unaddressed until it leads to more devastating consequences. CPI developed this seminar to raise awareness about workplace bullying and help proactive employees, supervisors, managers, and executives influence and manage the risks by understanding the nature and bottom-line impact of bullying. This half-day seminar incorporates lecture, case study, exercises, and discussion to influence behavior related to building and maintaining respectful, service-oriented, and safe workplace practices.

SEE IT — by identifying what workplace bullying is—and what it is not—and by gaining the skills to distinguish bullying from other challenging workplace behaviors.


CALL IT — by learning strategies for constructively and respectfully asserting individual boundaries within company protocol.


STOP IT — by making a positive influence on organizational culture and developing a comprehensive plan to manage and influence workplace bullying through policies, procedures, and practice.
