Leading for Respect: How Supervisors & Managers Can Create Respectful Workplaces Seminar
August 28 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
What’s different? Rather than dwelling on legal standards and what NOT to do (although this will be covered), this training will focus on WHAT TO DO – the words and actions that promote respect and fairness, and participants’ responsibility for contributing to respect in the workplace. Supervisors practice skills in responding appropriately to employee complaints and discuss how they can create a sense of respect for their employees, focusing on the employee’s perceptions of fairness and the supervisor’s responsibility to respond with emotional intelligence. Finally, supervisors are taught simple but effective ways to coach employees whose behavior might be a problem – early intervention to nip problems in the bud before they rise to the level of illegal harassment.
PRESENTERS: Feng [Kenneth] An, J.D., Director, and Elizabeth Marcus, Mediator Boston Area Office, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
This program is being Co-held in collaboration with Building Trades Employers’ Association, Building Pathways, NECA Boston Chapter and New England Mechanical Contractors Association. Registration is limited to 50 persons.
