Our topic will be Workplace Bullying:  The Silent Epidemic

Presented by:  Amy B. Shannon, President of Pinnacle Leadership Solutions


Bullying is something we all hope not to have to deal with much beyond the eighth grade. Unfortunately workplace bullies are a problem many people face. Unlike playground bullies who often, not always, resort to using their fists, workplace bullies generally use words and actions to intimidate their victims.  


In our session, you will gain insight into the following topics:
Identify warning signs of workplace bullying
Highlight the types of and consequences of a workplace bully
Learn to recognize the environment a workforce bully thrives in
Discuss tips on HR’s role to confront, stop and prevent bullying at work
Overview of the legislation on the horizon and legal aspects of workplace bullying
