Workplace bullying – more events – and a training manual?

default-16x9

The item on workplace bullying in a recent issue of LearningWire has sparked of flurry of interest. Jo Clifton and Carole Haigh notified me of some recent courses they had been running as part of the Dundee University Lifelong Learning programme, which were swamped with registrations. Further events are planned as follows:-

DAY 1 IDENTIFYING WORKPLACE BULLYING - 17 April 1999

Another response was from a UK publisher interested in producing a practical manual looking at the theory and techniques for handling workplace bullying. We have the names of one or two people who might be interested in contributing to such a publication - but are there other people with experience of putting training material together who would like to collaborate in such a project?

If you might have an interest in being involved, please let me know and we'll see if it's possible in networking potential authors for such a pack.

Email to tpickles@sift.co.uk


Both courses are also suitable for delivery in-house.
