Do you want a new system to deal with bullying & abuse?

The system is broken. Many of us feel trapped by a bullying and abuse mindset that dominates the playground to the workplace and everywhere in between. What if there was a different way? What if we could liberate ourselves from the cage of bullying and abuse? The R8 System is designed to do exactly that. Get ready to learn a whole new way that replaces outdated beliefs with up-to-date research.

Research is one of the eight fundamentals of the R8 System.

One of the most entrenched myths in the bullying and abuse paradigm or framework is that bullying and abuse create greatness, build resilience, and give you power. Extensive research in multiple domains shows that this is a lie. While an individual may bully their way to the top, they oftentimes remain trapped in a victim-mentality. They're riddled by anxiety. They don't trust those around them and believe they're under attack. 

It's time to lay to rest myths about berating, shaming and stressing individuals to increase productivity or enhance motivation. 

The research shows it does just the opposite. 

This course draws on the work of neuroscientific studies to design an exit from outdated ways of thinking about empathy, mindfulness, organizational leadership, individual growth, and positive psychology.
