Respect at Work
Training programs to create and nurture mentally healthy and safe workplace cultures of respect, empathy and understanding.
We spend so much time at work and we don't often get to choose our workmates. Working alongside someone doesn't guarantee that we like them BUT we do have to respect them. We have the right to be mentally safe at work and the responsibility to look after the mental health and safety of our workmates. This should be easy, but people don't always know what is 'Ok' behaviour at work.
Respect at Work will unpack respect, fairness and empathy and the connection to your workplace policies and to legislation. Respect at Work will work with your teams to identify both appropriate and inappropriate workplace behaviours and the impact of each to your workplace culture.
Respect at Work assists participants to:
- Define respect,
- Discuss and understand diversity and unconscious bias,
- Discuss inappropriate behaviour and bullying behaviour,
- Develop bystander strategies,
- Understand their rights and responsibilities under workplace policies and discrimination legislation,
- Manage relationship conflict in the workplace.
Respect at Work will work with your organisation to assist you to develop and maintain a more positive environment for everyone.
All sessions are tailored to specific industries, workplace policies, codes of conduct and current or potential issues.
I started Respect at Work because we all have the right to a positive, safe and respectful workplace culture, and at times we all need reminders and strategies to recommit to our workplaces and our teams. The Respect at Work message is simple; we're all responsible for our workplace culture and everyone has the right to be respected and feel mentally safe at work — the foundation for this is good communication.
I have been facilitating discussions about workplace behaviour, appropriate communication, bullying, harassment and discrimination for 25 years and I have had the privilege of delivering 3000+ training sessions, working with over 500 workplaces across many industries. Whether your workplace has some issues or it's currently awesome and you want to keep it that way, I would love to have a chat.
