Respect and Professionalism in the Workplace session offered July 25

By Human Capital Services-Learning and Development

Respect and Professionalism in the Workplace, WTD125, will be offered from 9-10:30 a.m. Monday, July 25, in the Edwards Hall commons area. 

The purpose of the session is to create an awareness of the needs of others in order to accept and acknowledge how their needs differ from our own needs. Respectful working relationships and respectful workplaces are integral components to increased productivity, teamwork and morale. The skills learned in this session will contribute to the minimization of negative conflict and subsequently discrimination, harassment and retaliation complaints.

As a result of this session, participants will:

  • Explain the importance of respectful relationships and respectful workplaces.
  • Identify some causes of interpersonal conflict.
  • Discuss communication skills that promote respectful relationships and respectful workplaces.
  • Identify K-State resources to address interpersonal conflict.
