Looking for a little more respect in your workplace? The good news is that it’s not just for Aretha Franklin or Rodney Dangerfield. Based on the speaker’s highly acclaimed book, this session goes well beyond the “feel good” themes of organizational culture and digs deeply into anthropology, psychology, and neuroscience to show how powerful a catalyst respect can be. In addition to summarizing decades of research on the impact of respect (and disrespect), the speaker will share practical, easy-to-implement strategies for helping to promote respectful work cultures, and will offer case study details on how best-in-class global employers are already using respect to make a difference in their cultures and bottom lines. If organizational culture is your job or your passion, this session is a must!

Application on the Job:

  • Learn the differences between cultures that are tolerant versus respectful and how these differences can better inform the strategy, resource allocation, leadership support, and time required for building more authentically respectful workplaces.
  • Learn how behaviors that are perceived as either respectful or disrespectful affect the brain differently and directly affect creativity, collaboration, productivity, retention, and health.
  • Explore and practice a new technique for quickly building a “bridge” of respect to others in minutes.
