Adept and Aware and Adult

 "(People) are so simple and yield so readily to the desires of the moment that (those) who will trick will always find (others) who will suffer to be tricked." - Niccolo Machiavelli "When you abuse someone, you limit their perspective, and you trap them in your view of them or your view of the world." - Tara Westover #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct

Inclusion, Dignity, and Equality vs. Bullying at Work

"Behavior is the mirror where everyone shows their image." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe "Corporate moral responsibility includes the need for corporations to address fundamental ethical issues such as inclusion, dignity, and equality." - Klaus Schwab #healthyworkplaces #stepup #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct Workplace bullying endures because bullies get what they want—at least at first. Address and resist abuse at work, gain alliances with successful leaders, shine a light on abusive employees, and strengthen your anti abuse movement with increased constituents. #LeadersArentBullies


 "In order to succeed, people need a sense of self-efficacy, to struggle together with resilience to meet the inevitable obstacles and inequities of life." - Albert Bandura "Resilience isn't a single skill. It's a variety of skills and coping mechanisms. To bounce back from bumps in the road as well as failures, you should focus on emphasizing the positive." - Jean Chatzky "Resilience can go an awful long way." - Eddie the Eagle #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct

Control Anger and Aggression

"Aggression unopposed becomes a contagious disease." - Jimmy Carter "Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead life to sovereign power." - Alfred Lord Tennyson #stepup #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct “Aggression is the wrong way to use power. There are wonderful ways to be leaders without being a bully,” says Debra Pepler, Ph.D. #LeadersArentBullies

Paknis argued in a motion for summary judgment that no reader could construe any statements in the book to be about Toray

  According to John Mangones, Paknis argued in a motion for summary judgment that no reader could construe any statements in the book to be about Toray, given that he had scrubbed all identifying information while blending the facts of several events. Judge William Smith went on to grant summary judgment to Paknis on multiple counts of Toray’s defamation claims. The judge also expressed skepticism as to whether a liquidated damages provision in the nondisparagement agreement could be enforced, given a paucity of evidence that Toray suffered any harm from the book.
