Respect in the Workplace


A respectful work environment is essential to the overall success of your team, and will contribute to a well-founded work reputation. Evidently, when we learn to accept the differences between the values and perspectives of those around us, we can continue to grow as a team. The concept of respect is often taught at a young age; however, it is just as important to remind adults to model respective behaviors. Remember, it is the responsibility of all team members to be respectful to one another, and address conflict in a positive manner in order to accomplish a healthy, safe work environment.

Research has consistently demonstrated that when clear goals are associated with learning, it occurs more easily and rapidly.

What is Respect?

Everyday respect plays a meaningful part of our lives, and can arise in many forms. Respect is the way we show appreciation to the valuable qualities of others, and we are all worthy of this appreciation. People tend to respect those with authority; however, respect for other individuals is not limited to those who appear to have more power than we do. Without respect in our lives, there would be a great deal of conflict. Hence, it is crucial to incorporate respectful behaviors into the workplace.

This course will give you the tools and conversation to help empower your team to recognize behaviors that influence their performance within the workplace. A respectful workplace is one in which integrity and professionalism are displayed, and skills to communicate and recognize one another are practiced.
