You’ve seen the posts about our upcoming webinar, “Workplace Bullies & Abrasive Leaders: Why They Act that Way and How to Make Them Stop”, and we have to say, we’re getting pretty excited about it, and we want to share this experience with you!

You might say, “Workplace bullying is just a personality conflict between two people, so why do we have to do anything about it?” (Check out our 13 Myths About Workplace Bullying Debunked!)

Here’s why.

Workplace bullying and other negative behaviors can take a toll on the heart of your organization – employees. Employees that are targets or witnesses of workplace bullying can suffer from anxiety, stress, depression and other serious health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. 

Not to mention, organizations that foster an environment where workplace bullying thrives, have higher turnover rates, lower performance employees, and lower financial success. 

Even a simple act of incivility can ruin someone’s whole day, causing a chain reaction throughout the company. That’s why it’s time to focus your efforts on building a culture of respect. 

If you don’t believe me, check out this infographic on the cost of workplace bullying. It’s packed with statistics that will help you understand the negative effects that bullying can have on your organization and its people.
