We hear and talk about bullying in schools, but more often than not- we keep silent about bullying in the workplace. Not only does bullying in the workplace cause stress related illnesses, high turnover, absenteeism and poor customer service, but bullying in the workplace costs money. The Workplace Institute (WBI) concurs that workplace bullying “costs $180 million in lost time and productivity.” 

“I only wish others would have spoken up on any of the numerous times I was publicly humiliated by the bully on my management team.”

Donna Clark Love, Bullying Expert and Trainer, can provide workshops, in-house consultations, coaching, and courses on workplace bullying. She is ready to discuss research-based turn-key systems any company or organization can use to assess, address, and stop workplace bullying.

After learning the facts and current stats about workplace bullying, all training participants will discover why it is imperative for workers and organizations to be trained on workplace bullying. The number one reason is at least 1 out of 6 people have reported being bullied at work. Did you know that 67% of those being bullied have the intention of leaving their job and 37% plan to stay in their job, but do as little as they can just to get by?

Donna Clark Love will utilize her years of experience, dynamic presenting techniques, research, and current information to help you find out ‘what works’ and ‘what does not work’ when addressing workplace bullying.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Martin Luther King Jr.
