BullyProof: How to Influence Alphas When the Stakes are High Webinar

BullyProof: How to Influence Alphas When the Stakes are High

View on May 22, 2024
Start time 2:00 pm (ET)


Every day, millions suffer from workplace bullying. The financial, physical, and psychological cost is immense: toxic leadership costs businesses billions of dollars annually in turnover alone. Yet the common approaches of dealing with bullies by either avoiding or attacking cause more problems than solutions. In this interactive session, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Rob Fazio, PhD, will offer practical frameworks and strategies to become “BullyProof.”

This session is based on Rob’s newest book, BullyProof. It’s not a book about giving up, giving in, or losing. Contrary to popular belief, power is something anyone can build in themselves and others. He explains that there are ways to win that don’t focus on making sure someone loses. Rob will leverage over 20 years of working with underdogs and top dogs to equip participants to take ownership of their power and use it for good.

Take Rob’s free Wait, Am I a Bully? quiz as preparation for this webinar.

Attendees will learn

  • The four types of alphas – and the difference between an alpha and a bully.
  • How to develop Value-Based Power for effective, balanced influence at work and home.
  • How to identify bullying behaviors you may unintentionally engage in.
  • How to understand the approach of Subtle Strength to demonstrate calm confidence, backbone, and respect.
  • How to leverage four quizzes to take intentional action.
  • How to protect and strengthen others, your organization, and society.
