What is your organization doing to create a civil and respectful workplace? EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum commented that workplace incivility often acts as a “gateway drug” to workplace harassment.
Join us for a special 2-part seminar for supervisors, focused on establishing and maintaining a respectful workplace. The seminar integrates the EEOC’s Select Task Force Report with hands-on learning to build awareness and skills to minimize rudeness and harassment while strengthening respect in the workplace.
Both sessions will be interactive with ample opportunity for skills development.

- Your role and responsibilities
Session 2: Civility Skills Techniques -

- Coaching on rudeness and inappropriate behavior – helping the target of incivility
- Coaching the initiator
