Are women more hostile to each other at the workplace? Do women bully and harass other women more at the workplace than men? Do men and women take different approaches or tactics when it comes to bullying?

This webinar is on the very interesting topic of bullying of female employees by other female employees. Women’s bullying is usually subtler and more covert than the one done by men. This makes it difficult to identify and recognize easily. Managers who refuse to see this give bullying women the freedom to continue with this habit undetected.

It is true that women bully other women at the workplace quite differently from men. Whatever the differences, the results of female bullying are there to see:

  • Bullied female employees take off from work more frequently
  • They perform poorly
  • Their morale and motivation are usually low
  • Their trust in management erodes
  • The chances of their quitting their jobs and seeking other employment opportunities are higher.

Understanding of female harassment from all perspectives

At this webinar, Dr. Strauss will take up these and other important related questions relating to female bulling at the workplace from other female employees. She will address core questions pertaining to the topic, which include the following:

 

  • Are women really each other’s worse enemy or is it just a myth and a stereotype?
  • What does research show about women’s hostility to other women, sometimes called bullying in the workplace?
  • Is female to female bullying an issue that deserves attention apart from general workplace bullying?
  • Do we have different expectations of women’s behavior at work than we do of men’s behavior?
  • Do we have a responsibility, as women, to support other women at work?

Some of the aspects that Dr. Strauss will examine in helping participants arrive at an understanding of these critical questions include theories as to whether women are more hostile to each other than to men, the role sexism has in building and reinforcing our stereotypes relating to perceptions of women and men’s bullying, the connection between bullying and harassment, the impact bullying has on witnesses, tort laws on this subject, and tokenism as a means to address this often grave issue.

Dr. Strauss will cover the following areas at this webinar, which is of high value to Human Resources Generalists, Managers, Directors, Women Owners, HR Managers, Controllers, Supervisors, Office Managers, Accounts Managers, or anyone in Management at all levels:

  • To describe women’s ways of bullying
  • To discuss the theoretical causes and contributing factors of women’s bullying
  • To determine if bullying could be illegal harassment
  • To explore the impact of women bullying their colleagues
  • To identify management’s role in the prevention and intervention of women’s bullying
  • To list the steps to take if targeted by a bully.

This webinar is completely based on a comprehensive three-year study the expert at this webinar, Dr. Mitchell Kusy, carried out with Dr. Elizabeth Holloway, aimed at analyzing how toxic behaviors in the workplace rob organizations of everyday politeness, making them places that people avoid joining and working in.

This study, which had a sample of more than 400 participants, zeroed in on measurable figures that convincingly proved that when employees make daily courtesy a habit, it leads to an environment in which there is positive change in the organization.

Dr. Kusy will explain the findings of this study in detail at this webinar. He will validate his findings by presenting facts which show what changes could be observed before and after employees adapted this attitude.

How to avoid toxic behaviors?

The core of this webinar is to demonstrate a practical and fresh approach that amalgamates everyday civility with performance management. A salient part of this study is how to avoid narcissistic employees. The speaker will explain how a simple tool such as this can be extremely powerful in bringing about change at almost no cost and yet offer high returns.

One of the strongest negative consequences of having a toxic employee is that other employees would not hesitate to leave the organization if they had a toxic employee in their midst. This is what about half of the respondents in this study said. Toxic employees bring with them a domino effect: they breed more toxicity among their colleagues, which vitiates the entire organization. Dr. Kusy will also offer learning which lead to an understanding of the ways in which toxic behaviors destroy team cultures when implemented at the micro HR level.

Dr. Kusy will explain the following startling facts at this webinar, which the study of which Dr. Kusy was co-author showed:

  • 92% of employees rated the range of severity of toxic work behaviors 7 to 10 on a 10-point scale: How can HR reduce the severity of these behaviors?
  • 94% of employees have work with a toxic person in the past 5 years: What are best practices for HR intervention?
  • 87% reported that team climate worsened: How can HR assess team climate with a simple and innovative assessment tool?
  • 51% of your organization’s top talent is likely to quit because of a toxic person: What are top HR strategies to reduce this turnover?
  • 90% of your customers who witness a toxic interchange between two employees tell others: How can HR prevent the erosion of your business?
  • 6% of individuals impacted by a toxic person ever filed a formal complaint: What can HR do to increase this low reporting percentage?

This webinar is of immense use for those who have to deal with toxic behaviors in organizations, such as HR Leaders, HR Practitioners, Talent Development Professionals, Organization Development Practitioners, and Leadership Coaches.
