I think we could all learn a lot from the weekend employee at Tylenol. Many years ago he saw a problem and made the executive decision to pull the product from the shelves.
Many of you may not remember that incident because they responded quicker than the media and showed more concern for public safety. They could have dodged it or pretended there wasn’t a problem but in the long run it would still be hurt their business.
When organizations and schools have a behavior problem they should act quickly and implement a strategy that will end it but prevent future occurrences.
Bully prevention is not just a fad that we will try this year. Instead it should be an ongoing training process that promotes positive behavior skills to reduce bullying problems.
