Defeating Abuse of Power - Learn the Psychology of serial abusers of power to prevent fraud and sexual misconduct

The headlines of business and political leaders who abused their power for personal gain have become a regular occurrence. The psychological toll and financial consequences for those left in the wake of such abuses in the workplace can be devastating. The patterns in these cases can teach us how to protect ourselves, vulnerable colleagues, and the organizations themselves from covert ways that abuse of power happen in the workplace. In this presentation, Stephanie will share her personal experience, academic research, and original models to illuminate areas of liability, shame, and blame.

Here’s what previous participants had to say about the OYF retreat:

  • This was awesome and has definitely helped us focus our efforts!

  • The goal setting techniques are very empowering.

  • Great balance of time management and flexible flow. Group instruction and sharing, private quiet time, and one-on-one time with you. You balanced all of our needs.

  • You were generous with time and attention. I appreciated that you shared additional concepts and tools as we needed them. The Hartman Performance Diamond was great for thinking about employee issues.

  • Good stories and examples. I loved the charts and drawings too.

  • The materials were fantastic. I’m a fan of big paper and colored markers! The color coded notebook and emailed templates for us to fill in were super.

  • Thank you, Stephanie for helping us set doable goals for our business and to get organized to achieve them. We sure will miss you in Hood River but know Austin is gaining!

  • I’ve done this retreat several years now. I can always count on you to push me to think outside the box regarding goals and supporting actions.

  • Your workshop brought clarity and purpose to my business goals. I now have a plan for action that is achievable. I wish I had done this 5 years ago! Thank you, Stephanie!
