Actions and Detail Panel
The Cooperative Workplace with Gerri King, Ph.D.
Mon, May 15, 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
Join us for an interactive workshop designed for managers, supervisors, and administrators of organizations and businesses with Dr. Gerri King.
Join the movement to create a motivating and safe workplace where employees and leaders can concentrate on their jobs without distracting and destructive blaming and gossiping!
Consider the benefits of a work environment where fear, worry, resentment, and suspicion are absent; a place where the work flows, because the avenues previously cluttered with destructive chatter have been cleared.
When things go wrong, it doesn't matter who's to blame; it matters that it gets fixed!
"But if I can't place the blame, then employees won't be accountable."
In fact, they become more accountable, because they know the response won't be punitive. Learn how to create a punishment-free work environment that encourages employees to admit mistakes sooner, so problems don't get bigger.
Employees will be encouraged to talk to each other instead of about each other. Instead of complaining about a colleague to a coworker or supervisor, they will acquire the skills to talk to one another directly.
"Eliminating blame and gossip in a work environment results in higher productivity"
- Participants will be able to describe the effects of a destructive work environment on client services
- Participants will be able to identify distracting staff interactions within their own organization
- Participants will be able to identify ways to build their leadership skills to create a more harmonious work environment
- Participants will be able to practice utilizing newly developed leadership skills
