Proactive Process


The anti bullying project

Pros

Identifying Issues Prior to Takeoff

No to low risk to passengers

More resources available to correct the problem.

Access to professionally trained maintenance and ground crews.

More equipment available.

Working conditions are more favorable.

You have as much time as you need to correct the problem before increasing the risk of passengers.

You can safeguard the passengers by rescheduling passengers on other flights or take a delay to fix the problem.

Cons

Inconvenience to the passengers and crew.


The anti bullying project

Pros

Identifying Issues After Takeoff

Landing quickly is sometimes risky, but the pilot can return to the gate and get the assistance needed to fix the problem.

Cons

It is no longer a minor inconvenience to the passengers and crew, it has become a risk.

The higher the altitude, typically the greater risk those passengers are exposed to.

Sometimes their landing equipment is hindered and they have to resort to emergency procedures.


The anti bullying project

Pros

Identifying Issues At 30,000 Feet

None

Cons

Limited resources; the crew are on their own with limited tools to fix the problem.

Sometimes they can receive verbal assistance if they have communication links to the ground.

The level of risk is great and can cost lives and anxiety.

At times, they must land in emergency conditions because they don’t have all the tools necessary to fix the problem while in the air, or they can’t access the area of the problem nor do they have tools to fix it,.

Time and fuel are against the flight crew and passengers.


Why were we successful

Why were we successful?

We:

  • clearly defined what we wanted to accomplish.

  • developed a plan and wrote it down.

  • designed training for all levels of the organization that it affected.

  • provided initial, annual recurrent, and timely, on-going training in daily briefings.

  • clearly set expectations for all involved.

  • we followed up to make sure we were getting the desired results.

  • we altered our plan and followed the cycle through until we reached our goal, if we didn’t get the results we needed.

  • we never gave up because we knew the cost could be a life!

Pros

Identifying and Providing Support Prior to Bullying Incident

No to low risk to students.

More resources available to correct the problem.

Access to programs, support and training occurs before the turbulence begins.

Identify needs of the students prior to program kickoff for specialized focus and training.

Learning conditions are more favorable.

You have as much time as you need to correct the existing problems and aim for a better tomorrow before students are at a greater risk.

Heighten awareness, build safety support team, learn life skills to be stronger if confronted with acts of or tendencies to bully.

Training occurs while students are in a more receptive state.

You can safeguard the students through education.

Cons

Inconvenience to the faculty.

Cost (time and resources).


The anti bullying project

Pros

Identifying Issues After Bullying Has Begun

None.

Cons

The learning environment is now emotionally charged.

Once bullying begins it is more difficult to stop the trend; it is like trying to push a car uphill.

It is no longer a proactive measure, in a teaching environment to strengthen character of a student, it is now a reactive measure such as discipline, to punish a student.

The environment is no longer a constructive learning environment, it is a threatening and uncomfortable environment for the bullied student.

Many schools offer evidences of an anti-bullying campaign, but it is often times based on the “don’ts” instead of building character.


The anti bullying project

Resolving Bullying at 30,000 FeetThere are no “pros”…60% of all students report they have been victims of bullying.**Most bullying occurs when no one else is around.**

Common Actions of Bullies

Common Behaviors of Victims

Embarrassment, isolation, lower self-esteem

Fear, anxiety, desperation, insecurity

Lower grades, distractions, increased absences

  • Teasing, harassment, criticism

  • Physical violence, threats, death


The anti bullying project

Ending the Bullying – A desperate cry for help.

Are we willing to risk another emotional or physical fatality due to bullying?

Some students land with minimal damage to themselves or others and they are able to get the help they need to overcome lifetime emotional and physical scars. Other students aren’t as fortunate, they spend their lives trying to overcome low self-esteem, fear, and often times serve prison time as a consequence for taking matters in their own hands.


Which is more effective

Which is more effective?

Reactive Measures?

Preventative Measures?

Correct/modify the process as needed for greater success

Confidence, high grades, security, successful future

  • Impulsive reactions to situations

  • Stress, anxiety, frustration, desperation, fear

  • Often too late to prevent long-term consequences without professional/legal help
