    Program Information:

    An ancient curse: “May you live in interesting times.” It seems as though we are living through interesting times, where we are at a crisis point with a lack of civility in the workplace. Incivility often leads to bullying and/or harassment behaviors. Incivility is costly – taking a toll on the psychological well-being of employees, as well as their engagement and satisfaction levels. Incivility can also increase turnover costs, destroy a company’s reputation, and result in costly legal consequences. So what are organizations to do? This workshop provides practical steps that organizations can take to return civil behavior to their workplaces.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Participants will be able to define and recognize civility and incivility in the workplace
    • Participants will be able to distinguish between inclusion, civility/incivility, and harassment
    • Participants will be able to use a 4 step process for ensuring that employees act with civility
    • Participants will understand how to use a Code of Civility, plus other civility tools and techniques, in their organizations
