WILMINGTON, NC, December 09, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In a recent Inc.com article Sylvia Lafair, award winning author and President of Creative Energy Options, outlined a 3-point strategy to stop harassment at work once and for all.
The number of high profile celebrities involved in scandals - including Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Bill O'Reilly, Kevin Spacey and many others - continues to grow almost daily. While we hear about celebrity harassment in the news of course, we hear far less about the ongoing harassment that occurs in businesses all over the US and the rest of the world every day. We really don't need more gossip. What we need are solutions that work.
In the Inc. article, Lafair laid out a 3-part strategy represented by the acronym OUT - Observe, Understand and Transform.
In the article she stated in part:
"Adult relationships take work, lots of work. So, you have every right to raise an eyebrow in disbelief when I say stopping harassment is simple.
"Stay with me.
"It's about NO MORE JUBLA. (More on JUBLA later)
"Let me explain. Actually, let me let JAY Z explain.
"In a recent New York Times article, the famed rapper-businessman talked about therapy and getting to know himself from the inside out.
"His openness and honesty about being unfaithful in his marriage to Beyonce is a powerful example of a man able to get at observation of his behavior, understand its roots and then transform his actions to a more positive way.
"The way OUT of old outdated behavior: Observe, Understand and Transform.
"Leaders who use the OUT Technique set the stage for their colleagues and employees, all who look up to them, to also want to get OUT of old ways of thinking and acting.
"In JAY Z's words "The most important thing I got (from therapy) is that everything is connected. Every emotion is connected, and it comes from somewhere. And just being aware of it. Being aware of it in everyday life puts you at such a ... you're at such an advantage. You know, you realize that if someone's racist toward you, it ain't about you. It's about their upbringing and what happened to them, and how that led them to this point. You know, most bullies bully. It just happens. 'Oh, you got bullied as a kid so you trying to bully me." I understand."
"Now about JUBLA. The rapper continues, "And once I understand that, instead of reacting to that with anger, I can provide a softer landing and maybe say "Aw man, is you OK?"
"No JUBLA: Judgment, Blame or Attack."

Women are demanding a new standard for gender equity. Check out my article on INC.com where Jay Z shows the world how a strong man can Observe, Understand, and Transform outdated behavior. Those who change for the better are the winners moving forward."
