Stop workplace bullying with Jeanie Cisco-Meth
This episode of The Ultimate Leadership Podcast shares insights into why people bully and how to confront bullies
In a field where members rely on each other to work on critical cases in tandem, to survey the scene to keep each other safe, and to lend a listening ear after a traumatic call, maintaining the integrity of the department and trust between members is essential. This EMS1 special coverage series identifies the top disciplinary issues facing EMS leaders and what they can do to prevent and mitigate bad behavior while preserving trust among the community and members.
When Jeanie was young, everyone knew she was different. When she got into school, the labeling began. She had so many learning disabilities and physical differences, she stood out. She had dyslexia, she couldn’t talk very well, she was legally blind, she was six feet tall by the eighth grade, she was a cancer survivor, and the list goes on. Jeanie has made it her crusade to stop bullying, not only working in the corporate world, but taking her message right into the schools.
In this episode of The Ultimate Leadership Podcast, Chris and Jeanie discuss why people bully, how to confront bullies, and she shares some insight from her book, “Bully proofing you: Improving confidence and personal value from the inside out.”
