Webinar: Managing Policy: Creating a Culture of Respect
Recorded On: 09/15/2021
An organization’s culture is best described and measured by the way employees interact and communicate with each other. To create a culture of respect, organizations need to do more than create policies, they need to secure employee buy-in to demonstrate behaviors that uphold policies. Employees need to take personal accountability for their actions, in addition to, holding accountability conversations with coworkers when their actions breach policies and cross the line from respect to disrespect.
When people are trained to hold accountability conversations, they respectfully and confidently speak up at times when differences of opinions are touted as absolutes, when values and personalities clash, and when challenging behaviors negatively impact others and strain working relationships.
Learn how to secure employee buy-in policies and expected behaviors. Establish and maintain a positive workplace culture by training people to respectfully speak up when the actions of others breach policies and erode working relationships.
In this training you will:
- Effectively address behaviors that strain working relationships and erode the culture
- Increase accountability and ownership
- De-escalate conflict and create safety at times when opinions differ
- Build more positive and productive working relationships
Create a workplace culture in which teams love to work.
