Rudeness and bad behavior are on the rise over the last decades, in politics, social media, and sports, but particularly in the workplace. The causes are many, but the number one reason employees leave their employer is because of their boss. Yet corporations continue to tolerate the wicked boss who gets results.
How we treat one another at work really matters. Insensitive interactions and negative relationships have a way of cutting into people’s health, performance, and souls.
In this interactive session we will explore the research behind the causes, costs, and consequences of incivility and discuss whether it is possible to reverse this trend and what Talent Development professionals can do to help make this happen.
