In our next podcast episode, we highlight Gian Lozano’s talk from our 2020 Spring Symposium. Gian Lozano is the High Reliability Administrative Director at Veterans Affair (VA) Portland. He has had a passion for developing behavioral solutions for organizations spanning over twenty years. His talk on “Changing a Toxic Workplace Culture” was originally given at our May 2020 Spring Symposium, where speakers picked up where the Spring 2019 Symposium left off and continued with a deeper dive into specific lessons and tips for effectively addressing and preventing workplace aggression. Tips were shared on different practices and strategies to reduce violence in the workplace. The goal of the event was to discuss job and industry risk factors of workplace aggression and to provide guidance for workplaces.
