To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Communication & Leadership |
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

Bullying at the workplace: Statistics on bullying - Human resources News on Violence in the Workplace


"...between 35 and 50 percent of workers have been bullied or otherwise abused in their workplaces at some point during their careers." Duffy told us.


"And for those of you in HR, you might be very interested to learn of the frequency statistics that were reported in a very recent study – 31 percent of human resources personnel had been bullied and over half of that bullied group believed it was because of their role in human resources and their associated responsibilities."



As if the personal implications weren’t enough, there is also a financial aspect to this situation.


"In the United States, the actual cost . . . $250 million annually in expenditures related to health care, litigation, staff turnover, and retraining from workplace bullying and mobbing." Duffy explained.


This figure may be low given a lot of these types of costs are not always attributed to bullying when in fact they could be.

It's time to take a close look at the quality of leadership in organizations!  Leadership is not a license to bully or condone it! The problem is that many of us don't know we are actually doing it!

Mental Health of a worker is in my opinion the most unrecognized health issue in a workplace. Bullying at the Workplace is something we all know that goes on and is not something that is easily addressed. There are ramifications that can arise from both ends of a bullying situation. This is something that is very important to me, i hope to one day influence the workplace to eradicate bulling and impose a higher motivational chi to a workplace.
