Some do not believe there is a difference in the ways men and women bully, and if there is, what is the big deal. They may be right. The research suggests, however, that the two genders do tend to bully using some different tactics. Because women’s ways of bullying are generally more subtle, managers may not recognize it as bullying and ignore the behavior thereby giving tacit approval for it to continue. This leads to poor morale, lack of trust in management, poor performance, absenteeism and turnover. This webinar discusses the phenomenon-or lack there-of women’s hostility to other women, outlines what one should do if bullied, and discusses management’s role in the prevention and intervention of the behavior.
