Join us to hear from Professor Michael Leiter, one of the world’s foremost experts on workplace civility and engagement, about his applied research in this very important field.
He will explain how he has come to understand that respect and civility are the keys to better workplaces and how his research has shown that fundamental values such as respect and civility are not as widespread as we think.
In the modern workplace, we are all facing added pressures caused by technology automation, social media or higher expectations that cause conflict, thereby reduced productivity. Meanwhile, productivity depends increasingly on superbly functioning teamwork. Throughout his decades of research and work across the globe, Prof Leiter can show that by strengthening the culture of respect and engagement organisations have seen not only a reduction in incivility but an improvement in collegial relationships and a reduction in burnout and rates of absenteeism.
Professor Michael P. Leiter, PhD will share a synopsis of his years of international research and why the principles of the SCORE program have proven to be so effective.
We will share the results of PeopleScape’s ground-breaking work in partnership with Prof Leiter at Western Health in Victoria. We will explore how this work is dramatically improving the performance of teams operating in this health group and the impact it is making on each individual’s work and life.
