OVERVIEW

Bad attitudes, jealousy and destructive behavior in the workplace will sabotage hospital morale, lower self-esteem and reduce teamwork and productivity. When toxic behavior infects a department, managers may be tempted to ignore it or give in; the wrong thing to do, but tolerating it is not a solution! This session will show you how to neutralize gossip in the workplace and put a system in place to ensure it does not re-occur, starting with that of Zero Tolerance and workplace reprimands.

In this session, you will learn about the HR considerations for returning to work after COVID-19 and how keep emotional control and tame disruptive and destructive behavior.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

With all the disruption and stress everyone has been under from the COVID-19 pandemic, the workplace culture has changed. So many people have been working remotely, that people skills, effective one on one communication, have been downplayed. What you say and how you say it, has to be reinforced. It is more important than ever to watch how people interact with each other, from what they say, to how they act. People need to know they can talk to others, and be listened to by others. Judgement has to be dispelled and replaced with empathy to what is said and seen. Trust is a must for everyone, and that will only come from an open and caring environment.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Whatever happened to respect?  Rude, indifferent, emotionally troubled, over-worked and dis-engaged Employees do more harm to your business and employee productivity than you can afford. A workplace culture of tolerating a bad attitude by one or more employees is not acceptable. A lot of time, the cause of the employee attitude is generated from how they are treated at work, a seeming lack of respect of them. Is it you or is it them that is the problem? When you fully exercise your position power, you will dramatically improve the strained relationship and drive up their personal power. Respect comes from knowing the person and this session is how to find out what matters, drives and engages them. When you have a language of caring, you create respect. This session is how to change the viewing of this person and their behavior to move them to be solution orientated. Respect drives up trust, engagement and creativity. When you move from cautious and superficial small talk to actually deal with the issue by a language of  caring and a blameless apology, you go from a response of: “I thought you would never ask” to “Thank you,  let’s clear this up.”

WHO WILL BENEFIT

Newly promoted managers and supervisors, HR departments, aspiring leaders.

In this webinar, you will learn the two main causes of employee turnover and how to remedy it, and how to adapt the leadership characteristics of successful business leaders and coaches. You will know when to apply the measurement tools that are available to leadership to help drive performance in a win-win manner, to create enthusiastic, engaged employees.
