RIT is committed to building an environment in which all people are treated with respect and dignity at all times. Leaders personally set the example while establishing and reinforcing the standards and behaviors for respect and dignity within their teams.
Through reflection, conversation, scenario debriefs, and group interaction, we will explore together:
- What it means to be a leader and how you personally model respect and dignity
- The importance of civility and letting people know that they and their contributions matter
- Communication skills and behaviors, as well as the right media, that build a work environment in which respect and dignity are consistently practiced.
- Strategies for using experiences of incivility and disrespect as learning opportunities that create mutual understanding and reconciliation.
This session is designed specifically for RIT supervisors. The former title of this session was Building Respect in the Workplace for Supervisors, and the content has been updated.
This session is facilitated by Allan & Associates.
