Transform Your Workplace Dynamic

In media and television depictions of the workplace, co-workers are expected to engage in dog-eat-dog office politics to get to the top. Therefore, too often, real-world workplace culture is divisive and competitive in a negative way. However, having constructive, positive relationships at work actually benefits everyone in the long run. First, consider how much time with co-workers influences overall job happiness. A Globoforce study discovered that 78% of people who work 30 to 50 hours a week spend more time with co-workers than with their families!

Considering this, support and encouragement between work colleagues is highly important. In the same study, 74% of the employees surveyed who hadn't celebrated achievements with their co-workers said they were more likely to leave their jobs. This encouragement leads to higher levels of productivity and job satisfaction. The University of British Columbia conducted surveys of more than 100,000 people in Canada and around the world. They found that a positive increase in a worker's relationship with the boss and co-workers leads to increases in productivity and salary.

This course will teach participants how to develop positive relationships at work that are supportive, constructive, encouraging, and free from negative drama or conflict. As a result, employees will create a more harmonious office space, be able to work through disagreements, find more team solidarity, and ultimately have more job satisfaction This three-hour program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
