We've all dealt with them – the leader whose harsh or rude interpersonal behaviour compromises the integrity of the work environment. As a human resources professional, you are expected to provide effective solutions for addressing this disruptive conduct. Yet this task is far from simple: the person in question often seems untouchable or irreplaceable and a host of organizational barriers prevent decisive action.

In this webinar, Sharone Bar-David, Canada’s leading expert on workplace incivility, will provide you with insider’s insights, as she shares the lessons she has learned from her one-on-one coaching of abrasive leaders. You will discover what drives abrasive leaders to behave in the way they do and the organizational factors that enable and even encourage this behaviour. Sharone will share highlights from the abrasive leader survey she conducted in collaboration with Canadian HR Reporter and what they mean to you. Most importantly, the webinar will outline what your organization can and should do to tame the problem behaviour.

During this webinar you will:

• Learn about the causes of abrasive behaviour

• Uncover organization omissions and mistakes
• Aquire strategies for preventing and dealing with abrasive leadership
