As a WBI University graduate, you absorb information from all of these perspectives.
You will learn to customize the components for your personal needs and, upon completion of this course, you will be authorized to deliver presentations introducing Workplace Bullying to a variety of audiences — public or business groups using WBI materials, statistics, and our unique approach.

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.
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.
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.
I came away with an in-depth perspective that permeated my being. I received more information in 3 days than in the previous 2 years of research. Gary and Ruth Namie bring a perspective to organizational culture, leadership, and HR that can only be derived from personal experience coupled with scholarly research and study.
This is more than a course, a class, or a training. It is truly an experience. I have been in HR for 20 years and I can tell you that attending WBU was one of the most fulfilling and gratifying experiences of my life. It even motivated me to seek my PhD and to write my dissertation on workplace bullying.
The Namies enable us to start changing our perspective of what bullying really is all about: brutal, systematic psychological torture. As a union activist, I have been dealing with bullying for years. With these tools, we can start changing the tide; we can better protect our coworkers and stand up for our collective right to a safe, healthy and violence-free workplace.
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.
I acquired a treasure trove of historical and current data on the subject, and detailed explanation of every term and dataset along with a substantial amount of supporting material for use in future presentations of my own. This is the first time in my 17 years as a professional that I attended training and walked away with a turn-key program. I highly recommend this program to any professional who wants to be on the leading edge of preventing, training, and correcting one of the leading detractors to workplace health and productivity.
What a gift of the years of knowledge and experience you gave us and wrapped in a fun envelope that made it easy to understand.
Gary and Ruth are the ‘go-to’ experts. They have it all: academic expertise, practical experience, warm and engaging conversational style and that indefinable sense of grace. Quite simply Gary & Ruth are the Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers of workplace bullying!
