Managers and leaders are becoming increasingly fearful of taking action regarding underperformance and poor behaviour as a result of allegations of bullying being made and accepted. It's critically important to remove bullying from the workplace, while simultaneously performance managing staff in a supportive manner.

Managers and Leaders are responsible for driving productivity. Sometimes Managers or Leaders are held back by a fear of accusations of bullying. Do your people know how to proceed without the anxiety? Do they know how to proceed with courageous conversations without being accused of bullying? Do they know how to avoid or manage a bullying accusation?

"The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humour, but without folly." Jim Rohn
