Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: All staff at all levels/disciplines


The course includes techniques to overcome fear, nervousness or panic - and to "call out" bad behaviours with confidence, using advanced communication techniques drawn from the psychology of influence and persuasion. Each delegate receives a printed "Active Bystander" toolkit at the end.

The goal of this session is to empower staff at Strathclyde University to challenge unacceptable behaviours by:

  • Understanding what a bystander is and how to become an active bystander.
  • Understanding the 4Ds toolkit and how this can be applied in various scenarios.
  • Committing to be an active bystander and contribute to the positive work culture at Strathclyde University.
