Webinar - Respectful Workplace Strategies

  • 10/17/2019
  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • Online


Many of us spend as much time with our co-workers as we do with our families, yet we rarely examine the dynamics of a functional work environment. Interactions with our co-workers can create a positive or negative atmosphere that will be reflected in the quality of our work. This training will explore the elements of a respectful workplace, the negative impact of disrespect at work, and the strategies to ensure an inclusive and respectful work environment.

Participants will:

  • Learn to identify the components of a respectful workplace
  • Explore the costs of disrespect at work
  • Examine methods to address and resolve conflict
  • Recognize how individual bias can impact perception
  • Gain insight on “hot buttons” and how they shape our actions and interactions

Registration will close 24 hours prior to class.
