Interpersonal conflicts, harassment, and discrimination allegations are often the result of disrespectful attitudes and behaviors, misunderstandings, or an unwillingness to respect the point of view, rights, experiences or culture of others. Front-line leaders, managers, and supervisors often set the tone for what behaviors are considered respectful in the workplace. But what do we mean by “workplace respect?”

Take a deep dive into the meaning of workplace respect, learn to identify barriers to respect, and discuss how the concept of respect relates to topics like diversity and inclusion, bullying, and compliance with federal and state anti-harassment and discrimination laws. You will reflect on your own behaviors and actions, as well as engage in interactive exercises to learn and apply new tools and strategies for creating a more positive and productive workplace. Acquire immediately applicable communication techniques that will help you interact with direct reports in a respectful manner and successfully ask for mutual respect from them.
