Cultivating a Workplace Culture of Dignity
According to Gallup, 67% of the American workforce is disengaged. These individuals are not enthusiastic about or committed to their work and workplace. With much of the workforce actively disengaged, organizations are missing opportunities for innovation, growth, and profitability. Disengaged individuals are stifling their potential and failing to thrive, and they might be taking others down with them. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can create workplaces where people and work thrive together by creating a culture of dignity. Robyn Short, founder and CEO of Workplace Peace Institute, will share evidence-based strategies for cultivating a workplace culture where all people are engaged and experience their inherent worth and value as contributors.
Participants will learn:
- The criteria necessary for cultivating peace and dignity in the workplace and why this should be a business imperative.
- Dynamics of human behavior, including a fun dive into neuroscience.
- Behavioral approaches to leading and communicating with dignity and how this builds trust in the workplace.
