This program is a strategic examination of the very current harassment "Perfect Storm," with training advice on meeting the challenge of reducing your risk.
2018 promises to be a year of accusations and resignations - and leaders need to examine how we got here, what we should do now, and what similar challenges are on the horizon once we work through these immediate issues.
The current wave of harassment accusations appears to be a fundamental climate change in how our culture handles power and ethics. You have two choices - be reactive and live in fear of it happening to you or your firm, or be proactive and get ahead of it. There is no easy fix, and many of the "best practices" of the past are now "dead batteries" - they never really worked well, and now they have lost even more effectiveness.
This is an opportunity for you to evaluate your organizational strategy for dealing with harassment in all forms - sexual, quid pro quo, toxic environment and bullying. Each of these are based on power, and all forms of harassment reduce your organization's productivity and increase your legal risk.
