The Incivility Epidemic: Is Your Workplace at Risk?

Duration: 90 minutes

Workplace incivility seems like a small matter on the surface - bad manners, some squabbling, perhaps a lack of common courtesy. But the reality is that disrespectful behavior can measurably undermine your team’s ability to produce results.

Research shows that when people are rude to one another, they are much less likely to share information, contribute helpful suggestions, or offer assistance. Additionally, workplaces with low courtesy standards suffer from lower morale and higher turnover.

Respectful treatment, on the other hand, creates the foundation for cooperation between individuals and collaboration among departments. It’s not just about getting along. It’s about getting things done.

If you think your team can use a civility health check, join us for this 90 minute webinar with workplace communication expert Dr. Marie McIntyre. You’ll learn to recognize the signs of an incivility epidemic at work and specific strategies for improving coworker relationships, turning around a team, or changing an entire organizational culture.
