Approximately 14% of U.S. employees are victims of abusive supervision (nonphysical aggression) exhibited by supervisors toward subordinates. Research has already identified how abusive supervision is costly to victims, families, and organizations. Dr. Courtright will discuss his Kanter Award winning research which answers the more critical question of why supervisors behave abusively toward subordinates, in an effort to understand its causes and decrease its occurrence.
The Kanter Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
