Once you have studied Lesson 12.1 and read the Robert Fuller article on Rankism https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/somebodies-and-nobodies/201308/curing-the-poison-rankism, (Links to an external site.) you’ll next want to review the following article on bullying in the workplace: https://www.thebalancecareers.com/workplace-bullying-bullying-facts-and-figures-2164325 (Links to an external site.)
Then focus your reflective writing on–
- What 3 key elements from the 3 sources list above made the biggest impression on you. Why do you think that is?
- Why do you think bullying seems to be so prevalent in the workplace?
- Finally, do the confirming and disconfirming climates we create in our face-to-face conversations transfer to the communication we experience online? Why is that do you think? Explain your perspective.
Please take time to analyze the material, reflect on what you’ve discovered, and write what you know. As always, make your response substantial by developing a minimum of 15 to 20 sentences.
