Harassment prevention policies and harassment prevention training have really become about checking the compliance box, rather than actually preventing harassment. Instead, your best defense is creating a culture that leaves no room for harassment because speaking up is comfortable. That is, your best defense is inviting employees to resolve the issue internally. Your best defense is a workplace culture that prevents harassment.

In this course we discuss preventive training measures, steps to consider such as evaluating gender pay gaps, and stepping in when people act in legal ways that are still bad for your organization (e.g., incivility). Allowing incivility to occur opens the door for worse behavior, because it signals to your workforce that your core values and talk about teamwork is moot. This course will take you to the next level of harassment prevention. 

Learning Objectives
  • Explore the similarities between incivility, conflict, harassment, bullying, and violence
  • Recognize aggression and harassment as a social phenomenon, and why addressing it as a social problem is necessary
  • Identify the risks of allowing negative behaviors to thrive
  • Discover tips for creating a culture that does not tolerate harassment or bullying
  • Identify the three steps of intervention to address negative (albeit legal) behavior, such as incivility or bullying
  • Discover a simple tool for coaching those engaging in incivility or bullying

Course had an interesting perspective on how to prevent harassment at the work place. Many of the comments are true about what has been accepted in the workplace in the past. Good thoughts on how to improve the work environment going forward.

This is one of the best presentations on why an organization should establish and maintain a positive work environment and culture. The course was the opposite of what I thought it was going to be.
