The Bully at Work
What is bullying in the workplace? How prevalent is it? What forms does it take? What can organizations do to combat it?
In this highly interactive session, we will look at workplace bullying from a number of perspectives: a theoretical and research perspective, a leadership and HR perspective, and an OD and executive coaching perspective. As always, there will be plenty of opportunities for engagement and dialogue.
Panelists will be Debra Orr, Suresh Radhakrishnan, and Scott Wimer. Also, Jonathan Troper of Alliant International University will be the moderator.
Debra Orr is an Associate Professor of Organizational Leadership and Development at Roosevelt University in Chicago, and a 2020 Literati Award winner for Outstanding Paper from Emerald Publishing in England. Her recent article, “OD Strategies and Workplace Bullying” appeared in the Organization Development Review this past fall and a follow-up study, focusing on motivations for bullying is planned. As a scholar-practitioner, she is an active consultant, working with organizations both large and small, established and start up. Her first book entitled, Team for Change: a practitioner’s guide to implementing change in the modern workplace will be out this spring.

He has served as an EEO Officer, conflict mediator, internal coach and adjunct faculty in human resources and communication. Suresh has extensive experience working with Labor-Management committees and valuing diversity initiatives.
Scott Wimer of Wimer Associates is an experienced OD consultant and executive coach. He has much experience helping organizations create more positive cultures, and he has had a good deal of success coaching leaders with a history of aggressive and bullying behavior.
