Connecting with Respect
The Connecting with Respect workshop educates and applies respect in the workplace by demonstrating regard for other people as an essential component of all respectful interactions. This professional development workshop dramatically increases awareness and improves your employees’ ability to work successfully with anyone, regardless of background, life-style, job status or any other difference, by developing critical, self-directed thinking and behavioral skills. Diversity isn’t a Challenge to Manage; it’s Strength to Leverage.
You can’t train “diversity”. Diversity is the natural by-product of a constantly evolving global community and marketplace. Ignored, it can be a contributing factor in miscommunication, poor morale, low productivity, employee turnover and even lawsuits. Properly harnessed, diversity can be the source of extraordinary creativity, best-in-class customer service, a committed, engaged workforce and high organizational adaptability. The key to leveraging diversity is a rock-solid foundation of respect.
Through carefully researched and validated exercises, the workshop then takes leaders along a comprehensive learning path that expands their awareness, offers critical insights on human thought and behavioral norms, and helps them develop an easy-to-apply “tool kit” proven to increase their capacity for more consistently respectful behaviors.
