As a WBI University graduate, you absorb information from all of these perspectives.

This is not a ‘fluff’ training session…There was such an atmosphere of strength in the room as well as an eagerness to be a part of this great movement…It is a must for all leaders who believe an abuse free workplace is a person’s basic right.
Workplace Bullying University marries research with application, creating a principled approach to intervention and change on a systemic level. Topics are aimed at building upon the strengths of participants in an atmosphere of mutual respect and sharing.
WBI assistance, expertise, and professionalism are amazing. The time and talent invested are obvious in their ability to explain using a variety of perspectives. The teaching experience and therapeutic backgrounds are evident in discussion and the language is both academic and informed, [as well as] situationally appropriate.
Few things are as smart as investing in becoming a better thinker and developing a strong mind. If you want to develop a stronger mind regarding the bullying landscape, culture change or simply seek to improve your skills in identifying bullies, take this course. Do it in a snap. You won’t regret it.
You must go to one of these trainings! Gary and Ruth are awesome! My experience at Workplace Bullying University was very informative and rewarding…I will use this knowledge for myself and in my career to assist targets of abuse.
Three of the most engaging days of learning that I can remember. We covered fascinating subject matter with a well-researched body of knowledge pertaining to every person who works in business. …information, facts, and materials that would facilitate and expedite an week-long seminar or semester for higher education.
This was a unique and remarkable intellectual and personal experience … a jam-packed, soup-to-nuts curriculum … a very, very substantive program… extensive research and commentary … plenty of time for discussion … with a chance to share our interests, stories, and experiences … bonds form quickly and ideas begin to hatch.
It is very well put together, and replete with information, research and tested approaches to the problem of Bullying. Thank them also for the books, slides, notes and material provided. They deserve congratulations and admiration for the work they have maintained over 15 or so years, their educational generosity, and their commitment to legislation in each US state, and their international contribution.
The most valuable training received in my 22 years of union advocacy.
I have been involved in this movement since 1992 and learned a lot more than I ever expected. In addition, we were all pampered for the whole weekend while exercising our brains! I came home with 23 pounds of information to add to what I already had here. Workplace Bullying is the #1 issue to Union members and stewards at shop floor level. Gary and Ruth Namie are the premiere leaders, educators and researchers in this field. There is no better training source.
