Promoting Well-Being Through Civility and Inclusion

Promoting Well-Being Through Civility and Inclusion

Courtesy—what some people call civility—is an important value that promotes well-being in the workplace.

This seminar gives you the chance to tackle the issues of mental health, harassment and leadership as well as to look at the ability of common courtesy to develop harmonious professional relationships. You will also learn when your contribution can be effective, whether you are acting as a team member or as a leader.
