The Workplace Bullying Institute offers webinars on a variety of bullying-related topics. Please scroll through the list below to select the webinars that most interest you.
Making the Business Case to stop Workplace Bullying. The WBI Target Action Plan is our suggested course of action for bullied targets who have back-stabbing coworkers, unsympathetic bosses, no union support, and a host of employer representatives who tell them that the bullying is their fault. Forget rational appeals for help made to enablers of the bullying. They are part of the “vast conspiracy” making it a case of many against one. The tendency is to implore that the emotional abuse stop and that is typically done in an emotional way. The WBI plan teaches you to become an unemotional advocate for yourself by making the "business case."
