Download – Presentation: Bullying in the Workplace
First of all, we can define “workplace bullying” as the tendency of individuals or groups to use persistent aggressive or unreasonable behaviour against a co-worker or subordinate.

But recent and major worldwide problems (financial crisis, climate change, etc) have been requiring from us, new ideas and approaches to overcome them as a whole.

We must go further to find reliable solutions.
Basically, the great idea is to go beyond it, looking for new aspects in other companies and environments.
Our presentation is aiming to point out some aspects of the business theory “thinking-outside-the-building” and how a leader could learn new ways of thinking and developing innovation outside his business & company environment.
