ATLANTA, Dec.6, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In "A Herman Cain 999 Sexual Harassment Plan: Lessons for Professionals", Sexual Harassment & Sensitivity Training firm DB Pargman Consulting LLC offers nine important lessons for business and professionals gleaned from the Herman Cain story. Founder and CEO, Deena B. Pargman, Ph.d. suggests the legacy for Mr. Cain is a 999 Plan, albeit not the one the former presidential candidate originally had in mind.
In "A 999 Sexual Harassment Plan" Dr. Pargman claims Mr. Cain "lost his presidential pursuits not because of the allegations, but because of how he mishandled the allegations."
The 999 Sexual Harassment Plan: Lessons for Professionals offers nine specific lessons professionals and businesses should learn from the Cain story, a sampling of the which include:
Look beyond the legal definition of sexual harassment. Just because the behavior in question may not rise to a legal definition of sexual harassment does not mean such behavior is "okay" or good for a career or for business.
Central to the 999 Sexual Harassment Plan is recognition that the legal standard and definition of sexual harassment, which would govern a court case, are not the same standards by which the courts of public opinion will judge a professional or their career.
Dr. Pargman suggests, "the courts of public opinion and professional development impose a higher standard than what may or may not rise to legal liability . . . . Cain and his attorney were not in a courtroom but rather in the court of public opinion, and the second court can be much tougher" Pargman warns.
