Have people who bring “old school behaviour” to work – and leave people feeling disrespected, harassed or bullied


Have a team that walks on eggshells around certain people, and are visibly uncomfortable


Are promoting new leaders but they are quitting or “failing” because the people they lead target them with disrespectful, bullying behaviour


Have had a few “near misses” with complaints that nearly went to Fairwork or WorkCover


Have tried to change the approach to training on bullying and harassment but feel like it’s falling on deaf ears
