Demand Change!

"When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something." - John Lewis

Bullying in organizations may be tolerated and condoned because it's viewed as the accepted “way he / she gets things done," or it's the way "things have always been done.”  Inhumane behavior can not be grandfathered.  Demand change!

Influence with Behaviors

Organizational culture demonstrates shared values and beliefs with behaviors influencing how things get accomplished.

Protect the Nest

 "A leader creates a positive, high-performance work culture by setting the right tone and acting on it. Day-to-day execution - the tenor and tone - makes all the difference. One deviation - one exasperating meeting - and the CEO legitimizes bad behavior." - Ron Williams


How an organization responds to bullying; how claimants are treated after reporting victimization and how bullies are addressed, impacts workplace bullying recidivism. 


Safety and Innovation

"Low levels of psychological safety can create a culture of silence. They can also create a Cassandra culture – an environment in which speaking up is belittled and warnings go unheeded." - Amy C Edmondson

Duck, Duck, Goose

Quite an interaction with this Canadian Goose who either rushed me to protect her nest or  who is trained to receive treats from misguided human visitors.  She had no fear.
