The Growing Problem of Workplace Incivility: How to Reduce Rudeness, Encourage Courtesy & Create a More Professional Atmosphere
From raunchy reality shows to parent brawls at Little League games, incivility seems to be everywhere – so it's no surprise that rudeness has also invaded the workplace.
Squabbling employees, screaming managers, colleagues who never respond to emails, co-workers who send texts while you're talking to them… all these people seem to have forgotten the basic rules of courtesy and respect.
Offensive behavior among colleagues carries a high price, because "civility" at work means more than just good manners. Respectful treatment creates the foundation for cooperation between individuals and collaboration among departments. When people are rude and disrespectful to one another, they are much less likely to share information, contribute helpful suggestions, or offer assistance with problems.
Join us Friday, August 21, for The Growing Problem of Workplace Incivility and in just 75 minutes you will learn to recognize the signs of an incivility epidemic at work, and then discover specific strategies for improving co-worker relationships, turning around a team, or changing an entire organizational culture. The program will include the following topics:
- Why common courtesy is not so common
- The vicious cycle of disrespect: when rudeness leads to revenge
- 7 warning signs of an incivility problem
- Childish adults: Pouters, screamers & public attackers
- Communication insults: Email bombers, cyberjunkies, & nonresponders
