What defines business success? Is it innovation or revenue, or perhaps the satisfaction of an organization’s customers or people? No matter how you define it, many would agree the world’s most successful companies are built upon the foundation of strong leaders and effective teams.

In recent years, along with a rapidly evolving workforce, organizations have been prompted to invest more than ever in developing their people, particularly those in leadership roles. Businesses are operating with fewer employees and a new generation is occupying an increasing number of jobs across a variety of functions. In many cases, those in leadership roles may not be equipped with the skill sets needed to cultivate a healthy work environment for their teams. However, contrary to the popular phrase “great leaders are born, not made,” most individuals are capable of becoming an effective leader through continuing education and development.

LOVE SHOULDN’T HURT: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

    For those unfamiliar with the intricacies of domestic-violence, it’s simple to scoff and say, “If I were her, I would pack up and leave,” or “Why doesn’t he just change the locks and his phone number?”  But the complexities of domestic violence, also referred to as intimate-partner violence (IPV), are anything but simple. It entails physical pain, emotional anguish and psychological distress on behalf of the abused individual along with their family, friends and coworkers.

    According to the United States Department of Justice, domestic violence is defined as a pattern of manipulative behavior, including acts or threatened acts, used by a perpetrator to gain power and control over a current or former spouse, family member, intimate partner, or person with whom the perpetrator shares a child. It occurs in heterosexual and same-sex relationships and impacts individuals from all economic, educational, cultural, age, gender, racial and religious demographic[1]. While power and control reside at the core of domestic violence, the makeup of an abusive relationship can often be hidden in a range of dynamic actions taken by the batterer against the abused.
