Mind Your Ps & Qs: Getting Rid of Gossip and Other Negative Behaviors at Work
Nov 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Most of us are curious about each other, and we like to know what is going on. But when this curiosity turns negative, workplace rumors can be devastating. They are often the source of employee anxiety and tension, lack of productivity, low morale, divisiveness, and an erosion of trust. This workshop teaches employees how to create an environment where team spirit and trust are high and negative behaviors, such as gossip, are low. Participants learn the difference between gossiping and reporting a complaint, how to identify gosip and deal with it effectively, and how to create a workplace that is safe and free of negative talk.
** Registration is required prior to the workshop.
