Respect is consideration for others. This may sound simple and straightforward, but this seemingly simple concept can have an enormous effect on a workplace. This video-based training shows you how to create a more respectful workplace by stopping disrespectful behavior in its tracks. To create a respectful workplace, everyone must value diversity. In other words, everyone must value each other as coworkers despite any differences they may have. Perceived differences are often breeding grounds for disrespect and discrimination; common differences include religion and culture. Furthermore, to judge someone by their appearance can easily lead to discrimination; how you intend your words to be perceived is unimportant, rather, it is their effect on the listener that determines their offensiveness. This course helps demonstrates offensive behaviors, and shows you how to correct these behaviors and replace them with respect. Utilize the information presented in this training lesson and do just that; learn that it truly is as simple as respect.
