The teleseminar series’ purpose is to educate and empower individuals to eradicate workplace bullying.  It outlines several options and their likely outcomes.  However, it is up to each listener to decide which course of action is appropriate to his or her situation. No single course of action is recommended above others.  Listeners are also encouraged to seek the services of a Human Resource professional. 

As mentioned in the first teleseminar, a bully is not a victim, he or she is a target.  The word victim implies total helplessness.  About 75% of people who are bullied tend to have some level of self-awareness, self-esteem and assertiveness to handle the bully and either not take it personally and/or assert back with confidence.  This teleseminar series will equip all employees with skills to cope effectively with workplace bullying, including protecting your health and managing your stress level, and confronting the workplace bully. Managers and supervisors will gain a better insight into what bullying looks like and how it feels to the target and be able to assess whether conditions in your department encourage bullying and how to change that.
