thinkPeople Offices, 12th Floor, Causeway Tower, 9 James St South, Belfast

We are at an interesting stage in how bullying at work is being tackled. We now have a raft of policies, procedures and advice on bullying and harassment however, it continues to provide many challenges for Third Sector leaders and their organisations.

The workshop provides us with expert advice and an opportunity to share our experiences and insights into this delicate area.

Workplace Bullying

Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) recently stated that ‘There’s a fine line between reasonable management control and bullying, and it’s a line that’s often unclear…Whilst some Chief Executives/Managers believe they are being ‘firm’ when they are bullying. Others worry about tackling underperformers and then being accused of bullying.’

The workshop provides us with expert advice and an opportunity to share our experiences and insights into this delicate area. In addition, it considers workplace bullying in the context of individual dignity and the practice of values-based leadership.
