Course Description:

This two part course will be led by Fran Sepler, an expert in creating respectful workplaces.

Online Session Part 1:  Respectful Workplace (All employees including Supervisors) 1 hour 

What makes for a respectful workplace and what derails it?  What does respect look like?  We will discuss an array of problematic behaviors from rude behavior to bullying and unlawful harassment, carefully defining each of these terms and talking about what should be done to address them.  We will include examples of bystander behavior – how to step in and act, and guidelines for providing and getting feedback when low-level problems occur.

Staff Webinar Part 2:  Leading for Respect (Supervisors) 45 minutes

When employees have a problem and they bring it to their supervisor, there are certain things that must happen, should happen and should never happen.  In this webinar, we will cover the importance of modeling respectful behavior, definitions and descriptions of an array of problematic behaviors and most importantly, two key skills: how to take a complaint and how to coach someone whose behavior is not respectful.  Supervisors will understand their legal responsibilities as a well as best practices.
