Bosses Behaving Badly

Date: October 8, 2020, 3:30pm – 5:00pm

Virtual - meeting info will be emailed once you have registered



Event Type:

Monthly Meeting

One of the most challenging issues to face as a Human Resource executive is when a member of the executive team or a senior staff member behaves badly.  As an executive coach, I have witnessed and heard about all kinds of bad behavior from yelling at subordinates to cursing at customers. Holding executives accountable and creating consequences for bad behavior is key to creating a motivating and productive work environment for employees.  

Bosses are supposed to be positive role models for the rest of the organization, not bullies. Nobody wants to work for a bully! During this interactive session, you will learn:
 The financial impact bad behavior can have on your organization
 How you can address bad behavior with executive coaching
 How using a behavioral assessment can redirect bad behavior
 How to develop consequences and hold executives accountable for
improving their behavior
 What to do if your boss is a bully

New SHRM Recertification PDC Option – Earn Recertification PDCs for COVID-19 Work

Once again, I want to thank you for your ongoing support of SHRM as together we build better workplaces for a better world. Your contributions are particularly significant as we face this era of COVID-19 and the transforming realities of our work as HR leaders. 

Many HR professionals like you, have dedicated uncountable hours supporting their organizations’ and communities’ COVID-19 needs, and SHRM would like to acknowledge this difficult, ground-breaking work. To that end, SHRM has introduced a new recertification PDC option related to COVID-19, and we are relying on you to get the word out to your communities. 

SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential holders who are working toward recertification can now earn all 60 PDCs for their work in this area. To take advantage of this opportunity, all they need to do is summarize their activities using this COVID-19 Response Summary Form and follow the instructions to redeem the credits. 

Please note that one of the requirements for earning credits is that certificants must attend at least one chapter or state council COVID-19-specific program and document it on the summary form. In support of this requirement, please make sure you have provided an activity code for all the chapter or state council’s COVID-19-related programming.

For questions or additional information, please email and/or refer to the FAQs posted on the SHRM certification website.
