Bullying and Harassment
Bullying and Harassment Training Teaches Communication and Accountability
Bullying and Harassment, Sexual Harassment, Civility, and Discrimination are topics we must actively engage and provide training to our teams. We must consistently offer a workplace that feels inviting, safe, and supportive. By law, employers are required to ensure it does, and supervisors and managers are responsible to teach, train and monitor the workplace for respectful practices.

We Facilitate Learning that Engages the Participant
Our Bullying and Harassment training program is designed to create a user experience that engages the participant. PowerPoint slideshows and handouts can only do so much. Participants need to experience events that trigger their own learning styles and interests.
The topics included in this course are sure to appeal to one or more of each of the participant’s interests.
The Difficult Conversation
We will discuss in detail how to initiate and engage in a difficult one on one conversation. Many of our students hesitate to have a private conversation as they feel so uncomfortable with confrontation.
Of course, the real lesson to be learned is effective communication. Beyond simply stating what the problem is from our point of view, we learn how to listen better and determine if there is indeed a bigger picture. When we were offended or bothered by an action, was there a backstory? Did we have all the facts?
Once the conversation has been experienced, how we will ensure that we both work toward better outcomes? What kind of accountability will we put in place?
Videos, Games, Self-Reflection
Using videos, games, exercises, self-reflection, group discussion, and teamwork, our participants learn to apply the learning modules to their specific situations.
For example, We begin our class with a video presentation of one of Australia’s Citizens’ of the Year. In this quick 3-minute clip our students come to understand the value and purpose of ZERO TOLERANCE and how each team member has a responsibility to maintain a healthy and safe work environment.
Thousands of 5 Star Reviews
Over the past 20 years, we have presented on the principles of a respectful workplace to thousands. Before Bullying and Harassment was a popular topic, we were teaching our classes on how to build healthy work communities to prevent the progression of harmful and demeaning behaviors.
Our trainers are highly experienced in training and the subject matter, and we consistently experience extraordinarily high evaluations. We don’t claim that every person in every class feels completely satisfied, but we can say with confidence that well over 94% give us top marks.
We work hard to ensure our clients have success with their teams. We would welcome the opportunity to work with yours.
