Loss of trust. Objectionable behaviour leads to workplace imbalances. Surveys have shown that because of the #MeToo and excessive news on the subject, up to 50% of male managers are now uncomfortable in work activities with women, over 30% are uncomfortable working alone with a woman, and 20% of male managers are uncomfortable mentoring women.

Bad, offensive, disrespectful behaviour creates more bad behavior, increases turnover and lowers productivity. Incivility is all about rudeness to others and being courteous and respectful.

It is up to you to prevent bad behavior by how you lead and manage your people. This presentation is how to change the viewing of this person and their behaviour to where you move them to be solution orientated. Respect reduces stress, and it drives up trust, engagement, creativity and productivity.

Why you should Attend: 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. Is it you or is it the other person that is the real problem? Respect comes from dealing with the situation when it becomes evident.

This presentation is how to change the viewing of this person and their behavior to where you move them to be solution orientated. Respect reduces stress, and it drives up trust, engagement, creativity and productivity.
