Respect and Professionalism in the Workplace for Supervisors session offered Oct. 13

By Human Capital Services-Learning and Development

Respect and Professionalism in the Workplace for Supervisors, WTD197, will be offered from 1-2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, 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.

This course is offered in conjunction with the Introduction to Supervision, WTD077, series. Seating is limited.
