Other essays offer solutions and alternative leadership models to minimize coercive leadership styles and create staff engagement.
As part of National Bullying Prevention Month, Patricia Berkly LLC will again offer its webinar Black and Blue Academy. The webinar is based on the recent book Bully in the Ivory Tower: How Aggression and incivility Erode American Higher Education. Past participants have included Duke University, Northwestern University, South Dakota State, the University of Alaska, and the University of Georgia. As workplace bullying occurs with 62% of higher education staff, the webinar offers solutions for both individuals and organizations.
