The Civil Advantage: Workplace Ethics and Civility

  • 04/22/2021
  • 9:00 AM - 10:47 AM
  • Webinar-ACPEN




Studies show that ethical lapses are more likely to happen if an organization’s culture is uncivil. Workplace ethics and civility are powerfully connected because what we call "manners" are behaviors developed over millennia to avoid destructive acts and build trust. People treasure their personal dignity, have amazingly long memories for personal slights, and thrive when treated with respect. In the workplace, rudeness, blustering, and bullying may win the occasional battle, but usually lose the war when it comes to lasting prestige and power.
