  • Session Description:
    Abrasive leaders rub their coworkers the wrong way. Commonly referred to as bullying bosses, their descructive management styles erode motivation and productivity in organizations. in today's highly competitive business environments, employers cannot afford the costs of disruption caused by abrasive leaders, including alienation and attrition of valued employees, harrassment litigation, and retaliatory responses such as sabotage and workplace violence.

    Based upon research from The Boss Whispering Institute and my own practice of coaching abrasive leaders, this presentation will address why leaders resort to bullying behaviors, why they deny their destructive impact, and what human resource professionals can to to effectively intervene.
