Creating Civility in the Workforce – Whatever Happened to Respect?

90 Minutes

Recorded Webinar


This presentation is about how to change the viewing of the disrespectful persons and their behavior to where you move them to be solution orientated.

What happened to respect and civil behavior? What cost do we pay when we lose both? Uncivil behavior and the feeling of being left unaddressed begins a downward spiral you and your employees can’t afford. Incivility leads to gossip in the workplace, rumors, bullying, harassment and then ultimately, what we see too much in the news lately, sexual harassments. The over-worked, dis-engaged and undisciplined staff does more harm to your company's reputation and productivity than, what you can really afford.

Don't let anyone get comfortable by disrespecting you, your work skills, your ethnic background, your soft skills in leadership and communication, your department, or your work team.

Uncivil and disrespectful behavior, when left unchecked, becomes the culture of being rude, indifferent and uncaring. This generates the gossip and rumors. Gossip is someone trying to level the playing field by taking away what someone else has, fairly or unfairly, or to get what they don't have, and think they should have. They become rude.

Rudeness is the weak person's imitation of strength and a sledgehammer by others who know how to use it. Left unchecked, this can lead to bullying, harassment and then sexual harassment, creating a toxic workplace, and when publicised, a bad reputation that requires expensive damage control.

Over-worked, dis-engaged and undisciplined staff do more harm to your reputation and employee productivity than you can afford. A workplace culture of tolerating a bad attitude by one or more employees is not acceptable. The cause of the employee attitude is generated from how they are treated at work, a seeming lack of respect of them.
