What does your bulldog cost you? The cost of workplace bullying and strategies to soothe a toxic work environment.  

Workplace bullying often looks like harassment.  The Workplace Bullying Institute shows that over 37% of the working population is affected by workplace bullying. Even when workplace bullying affects those outside of the Title VII protected classes, work productivity declines and turnover can skyrocket. The cost for American organizations can range into $64 billion a year.  In addition to financial costs, there are emotional and psychology costs to employees, and interrupted productivity for the organization.  Dr. Leah Hollis presents this webinar to help managers and employees spot a bully, understand the cost of harboring a bully, and develop strategies to curb the bully before he or she jeopardizes the organization.
