Louisa Jewell, CPPA President, sits down with Linda Crocket, Founder of the Canadian Institute of Workplace Harassment and Violence. Linda thought that her work with anti-bullying initiatives in the workplace would slow down during the pandemic – Instead her work quadrupled. Incivility in the workplace has never been so rampant. Listen in as Linda helps us identify bullying behaviors, the role of leadership in preventing bullying and steps you can take if you find yourself a victim of bullying.
