Breaking Bad: Creating a Culture of Civility and Professionalism and Why it Matters

This interactive session explores examples illustrating risks to agency mission, safety, engagement, and bottom line results when people behave badly in the workplace. More importantly, we will offer insight steps that can be taken to deliberately create and maintain a workplace culture that actively demonstrates commitment to civility and professional values, and why this is necessary to sustained individual, agency, and team success.
Particular emphasis will be given to building a business case for civility and leadership accountability. Participants will learn (1) why and how to correct negative workplace behaviors and (2) what actions can be taken to promote a culture of civility and professionalism throughout their organization and agency.

Learning objectives

Participants will learn how to:

  • Correct and prevent negative behaviors to minimize agency mission, safety, compliance and legal risks
  • Develop a cultural perspective for promoting and sustaining civility and professionalism
  • Understand specific elements that define workplace culture and how to positively impact them if the agency culture needs to change
  • Build an effective business case for civility and leadership accountability to achieve positive results
  • Develop a plan of action that can be implemented after the session

 

Building Blocks of Employee Engagement

Do even good leaders sometimes undermine employees because they are not consciously inclusive? Fostering inclusion and realizing the full potential of the diversity of our federal workforce requires that leaders continually seek out opportunities to gain important insights into behaviors that both further and hinder fairness, openness, cooperation, and empowerment.
In this interactive session with peers from other agencies, learn how to engage your leaders in promoting employee engagement and satisfaction to your agency. Session attendees will experience learning content that provides tools for creating places where employees want to work and where everyone is included and supported in doing their best work. Come to learn, share and network!

Participants will walk away with tools to:

  • Align their day-to-day actions with the organization’s values to positively impact teamwork, engagement, performance, trust, and productivity
  • Explore the strategic direction of their diversity & inclusion strategy and engage all organizational stakeholders around their inclusive workplace strategy
  • Define diversity and inclusion within their organizational structure
  • Understand and communicate the importance of a diverse workforce
