Inappropriate Behaviour at Work- are you hoping it will just go away?

Posted by Tracy Powley 06/11/17
With the torrent of allegations in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, many organisations will be taking a long hard look at their cultures and whether there are signs of inappropriate behaviour or misconduct in their ranks.
The most dangerous thing organisations can do now is nothing!
If you have a sense that there may be some issues… no matter how small at this stage, it is the time to investigate further and nip things in the bud.
If you uncover more pressing concerns, then it is vital to deal with them before they escalate and cause real damage to people, reputation and the bottom line.
And if you have been proactive in building a truly respectful culture, the challenge is in maintaining it… 
The sense of urgency that the recent news events have created is an opportunity to get things right and keep them right…. 
The real danger is to believe all is well, it “doesn’t really apply to us” and that things will “die down” 
The out of court settlements for the Bill O Reilly case were around £13 million and the Weinstein investigation is set to top £30 million
Doing nothing could cost dearly.

The way we behave towards each other in the workplace has a direct impact on individual wellbeing, team performance and organisational results. This belief has underpinned our work at Focal Point for over 20 years and has never been more relevant. We are privileged to work with a huge variety of organisations wanting to get workplace behaviour and culture right - and to tackle the inappropriate behaviour that may get in the way of this. Supported by our fantastic team of facilitators and coaches, we are able to make a real difference to peoples’ lives as well as organisational performance. Having worked in both large businesses at management level and in 2 start ups at director level, I am able to combine hands on experience of growing and managing teams - and the associated challenges in creating the right culture - with over 20 years in learning and development. I hold the Certificate in Training Practice and am a member of CIPD. When I am not supporting clients or developing the Focal Point business, you will find me in a calming yoga class...
