Using case examples, our organisational psychologists will examine the causes of extreme bad meeting behaviours and explore the individual, social and contextual drivers that cause it.

Our experts will cover:

  • Why boards are so bad at dealing with domineering behaviour;
  • How to recognise the warning signs of bad behaviour before it disrupts;
  • Strategies that specifically target the unmet needs that drive extreme behaviours; and
  • How to call out bad behaviour directly without adding fuel to the fire.

With examples of the worst behaviour seen and an invitation to share your own experiences, you will learn simple strategies for dealing with dramatic hissy fits, personal vilification and other corrosive behaviours.
