Dr Moira Jenkins has developed online training courses that can provide your employees with real insight into the issues of bullying and harassment in the context of achieving a psychologically safe workplace.
The course on a psychologically safe workplace explains what bullying is, and what it is not, as well as what are the current legislative requirements about this important issue. We outline how there are various risk factors that can either increase or decrease the likelihood of incidents occurring in the workplace. Included in this course is a module on what to do if you have a workplace issue.

Moira's approach to workplace bullying is realistic, practical and well-informed. She deals with the complexities and ambiguities in bullying through a comprehensive and well written text. Ideal for HR Practitioners, small business owners and OH&S professionals who want to improve their practice. This is a really good book!

Moira has enabled our employees to address and manage issues they may be facing in their personal lives, minimising the impact on their performance at work.
Fiona Stephens/ Principal at Central Psychology Services
Moira really knows the area of bullying/workplace factors contributing to a workplace where bullying occurs. she is a great trainer and educator and brings with her solutions to an area where many just throw their hands in the air, blame the "bully"; and so fail to address the systemic issues contributing to the bullying behaviours. No-one wins when bullying is allowed to continue and yet many organisations fail to be active when they are told it is occurring on their patch.
Russell Varley/ Principal, Direct HR Solutions
Moira through her company Aboto has provided education and training to the majority of our workforce. Firstly through education in implementing a Respectful Workplace Framework throughout the Southcott workforce and secondly through specific Communication training to managers to improve having more difficult conversations should they arise. Each time the work presented is professional, up to date with legislation and more importantly delivered in an easy to understand and relevant style that engages the audience. Moira is an expert in her field and gains the trust of those she is delivering to. I would recommend Moira to any employers looking to improve workplace knowledge in the workplace behaviour field.
