Passive-Aggressive Behavior: Sources and Solutions for Library Workspaces (LibraryWorks Webinar)

Passive-Aggressive Behavior: Sources and Solutions for Library Workspaces (LibraryWorks Webinar) In-Person

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we have partnered with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 


Passive-aggressive behavior can be maddening. It catches us off guard, causes confusion, resentment, and low morale. What causes it and how can you help prevent it? This webinar will bring together research from multiple fields on how to handle passive-aggressive behavior, with particular tips for librarians. It will also explore the causes of passive-aggressive behavior, the benefits of anger, gender biases around anger, and more.

Participants will learn:

  • How passive-aggressive behavior can be an adaptive trait and encouraged through systems at work, home or in broader society
  • Signs and examples of passive-aggressive behavior
  • Tips and techniques on how to reframe the behavior and deal with it appropriately whether it is coming from colleagues, patrons, or superiors
  • What boundaries are and how they affect our behavior
  • Role play examples to more effectively communicate
