How to Prevent & Handle Workplace Incivility On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Discover how you can eliminate workplace incivility and create a more collaborative, respectful, and productive team!

Course Description/Agenda

Apparently common courtesy isn't so common anymore ...

Workplace incivility -- behavior that's not necessarily meant to cause offense but often comes across as rude, thoughtless, or simply unprofessional -- is a growing problem for many companies.

Reduce Negativity and Turnover

More than a quarter of employees report they've already quit a job because of an uncivil work environment. Unfortunately, most never report uncivil treatment because they don't think it will be taken seriously. Instead, 94% of employees retaliate ... 66% intentionally decrease their work efforts ... while 26% simply quit because they aren't being treated with courtesy and respect.

No wonder incivility and the stress it causes is costing U.S. businesses $300 billion a year. It's a very expensive but solvable problem and is the reason we created this unique workshop.

Increase Collaboration and Productivity

Come to this powerful training program, and you'll discover the fastest, most effective techniques for targeting these toxic employees and stopping incivility once and for all. You'll gain proven strategies for increasing respect and cooperation between team members (even when they disagree) and see employee productivity and problem-solving skills soar.

Take your leadership skills to the next level and learn how to build the kind of positive, high-performing teams that get results -- and get noticed for all the right reasons.
