Young Workers-Tracey Leary (789.68 KB)For many of us the workplace landscape has radically changed.

Respect in the Workplace - Paul Kells (1120.55 KB)Respect is the antidote for workplaces where inappropriate behaviour undermines morale, productivity and the health and safety of people who work there. One person may think teasing at the water cooler is all in fun, while another might find it extremely painful. How do we understand the difference? What can anyone do about it? We also will work on understanding power imbalances and how they affect communication not only between co-workers, supervisors and others, but also in our personal and family lives. Respect in the workplace or any other environment requires effective two-way communication and a willingness to put ourselves in other people's shoes. Identifying power imbalances makes this a much easier thing to do. This session answered these questions and provided the practical base of common knowledge that is required for fostering and improving respect in the workplace.
