It’s been a long time since I’ve taken any training that was as engaging as this was. From a safety officers perspective, having to bring in someone for bullying and harassment training; something we have never taken before, I was somewhat concerned about the content. [I was concerned] that there might not be be buy-in from management, staff, or workers, that it would be dry and boring and might spend too much time pointing an accusatory finger at one group vs another in the workplace, that it would be “touchy-feely”…It was anything but. Everyone who met after the course and talked about it said it was very beneficial and well-presented, with common sense solutions and real-world applicable techniques…I would highly recommend it to anyone.
