This training program will discuss whether women are more hostile among each other in the workplace. It will discuss sexism and stereotypes in our perceptions of women and men’s bullying, the nexus of bullying and harassment, and the impact of bullying on witnesses.
Why Should You Attend:
This webinar will discuss the phenomenon – or lack thereof- of women’s hostility to other women, outline what one should do if bullied, and discuss management’s role in the prevention and intervention of the behavior.
Research suggests that men and women employ different tactics in bullying. Because women’s ways of bullying are generally more subtle, managers may not recognize it as bullying and ignore the behavior thereby giving tacit approval for it to continue. This leads to poor morale, lack of trust in management, and poor performance, absenteeism, and turnover.
