Webinar : Managing Policy, Not Politics in the Workplace
Includes a Live Event on 09/15/2021 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
With the country’s polarization seeping into the workplace, HR faces enormous challenges. While
diversity of thought ignites new ideas, creates solutions to problems while increasing the success of organizations, when differences of opinions are touted as absolutes, alienation occurs, relationships are strained, and cultures become unsafe.
While it is not the role of HR or organizations to legislate what people think, they are responsible to ensure that policies are created that honor differences. To ensure accountability, employees need to know how to respectfully interact with others at the inevitable times when opinions differ, when values clash, and when relationships are at risk.
Learn how to secure employee buy-in to uphold policies. Equip people with the skills needed to respectfully speak up when disrespectful behaviors breach policies so that a positive workplace culture is established.
In this training you will:
• Implement communication practices that increase safety while building partnership
• De-escalate conflict and create safety at times when opinions differ
• Build more positive and productive working relationships
• Decrease workplace tension and office drama
• Create a workplace culture in which teams love to work
