Encouraging a Culture of Civility and Respectcontinuingstudies.wisc.edu/0294-C-LAAS See upcoming dates
This class is offered in a highly participatory live-online format.
Disrespectful and uncivil behavior is on the rise in the workplace, costing organizations millions in lost productivity, lower quality, and employee turnover. To address this growing problem, we examine the concept of civil and respectful behavior and some of the possible reasons behind the trend. We also share strategies that organizational leaders and teams can employ to build and maintain a culture of civil and respectful behavior, and to address disrespectful or inappropriate behavior when they see it.
Desired learning outcomes
By the end of this class, participants will be able to:
- Describe civil, respectful and inclusive workplace environments and behaviors.
- List possible sources and costs of disrespectful and uncivil behaviors (including bullying) in their workplace, and understand the benefits of a respectful, civil workplace culture.
- Examine their own behaviors to identify where they may be behaving in ways that are perceived to be disrespectful, bully-like, uncivil or non-inclusive.
- Take steps to adapt organization systems and personal behaviors to establish and maintain cultures that are respectful, inclusive and productive.
