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 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 most valuable training received in my 22 years of union advocacy.
The most comprehensive place to get information about workplace bullying — what to do, what to say. The training provided answers to any and all questions I had before I came. Provided information and background. Provided tools. Packaged everything I need to know in a dynamic training.
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 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.
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.
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.
I can’t say enough about the level of expertise that Gary and Ruth possess. They are on top of the latest legal, organizational, and psychological information….For mental health professionals: You owe it to yourself and your clients to attend this training.
