Across Australasia, workplace bullying statistics - before the pandemic - were already concerning. Now, with all of the additional stressors arising from these challenging times, they are skyrocketing.

In the movies, we always know who the bully is. They’re either aggressive and physically threatening, or they’re the Queen Bee, judgemental and manipulative. For some reason however, Hollywood doesn’t always paint the most realistic picture of bullies, especially the intricate bully-victim dynamic that permeates the workplace.

What constitutes workplace bullying? 

In truth, we don’t always know what bullying is. Sometimes bullying is covert and inconspicuous. Sometimes, it’s not that easy to stand up and put things right.

It’s critical that we stay vigilant and learn to recognise the more subtle signs of bullying. The negative impacts from poor workplace behaviours are simply enormous. They impact the health and safety, morale, culture, and productivity of both the individual, and organisation. 

In this presentation leading workplace culture expert, Karen Maher, will share her insights and refocus your teams and leaders on the importance of respectful behaviours to minimise the risk of bullying, and ultimately enhance your culture.

  • The key risk areas right now with workplace bullying and psychological safety
