S. L. Young (www.slyoung.com), author of “Bullies…They’re In Your Office, Too: Could you be one?” discusses the impact of workplace bullying on successful project delivery at the Project Management Institute (PMI) – Southern Maryland Chapter’s dinner meeting on 3/19/14.
The ability to successfully deliver a project can be a challenge under normal circumstances. However, at times, some organizational stakeholders can add unnecessary pressure to harass, intimidate, and threaten to get their way or leverage their power, influence, and control to achieve their objectives. This presentation addresses the challenges of working on a project with a workplace bully, the impact that bullying can have on successful project delivery, and methods to minimize bullying behavior.
