Responding to Sexual Harassment

Patterns—Program Three…for Managers

Arming employees and managers with the tools to effectively prevent incidents in the first place, and to respond appropriately when they do occur.

Responding to Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment at work is more than a legal issue. It is fundamentally a behavioral problem. PATTERNS takes on the behavioral challenge, arming employees and managers with the information they need to prevent sexual harassment and the tools that will help them to respond when incidents occur. Through a series of short dramatizations this series describes common patterns of illegal or inappropriate behavior at work and how best to respond. We explore the habitual harasser, the smitten harasser, the bully and the jilted harasser. We also examine problematic management responses to harassment incidents, including the ostrich, the chameleon, the wounded tiger and the mother hen. Lawyers and HR professionals review each situation and present positive alternatives. 2, Responding to Sexual Harassment, is an extension of the first program in both style and content, and we recommend that managers view both parts of the series. Program 2 examines the legal liability issues and questions of personal responsibility that managers and supervisors must face. Using dramatizations, we explore different patterns of how managers often respond to sexual harassment incidents, including the ostrich, the chameleon, the wounded tiger and the mother hen and present more effective alternatives. Finally we discuss how incidents should be investigated and best resolved.
