As we work to build healthy and respectful workplace cultures, it is essential to understand the full spectrum of behaviors. Sepler & Associates’ Continuum of Workplace Conduct is a powerful model for understanding the full range of workplace behaviors, the impact of each stage on organizational culture, and what leaders can do to intervene to protect their organizational culture and prevent escalation of behaviors. This framework covers the practices that build robustly healthy workplaces, the behavior that derails workplace safety and respect, and the lawful and unlawful conduct that can toxify a workplace.
Fran Sepler will lead this session on the four stages of workplace conduct:
- Respectful Behavior (and its benefits)
- Rude and Uncivil Behavior (and its costs)
- Bullying or Abusive Behavior
- Unlawful Harassment
We will review a scenario for each of the continuum stages to explore impacts and opportunities for intervention.
This session will be recorded and available to view upon request. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
