Breakout 1

“The Emotionally Safe Workplace”

“I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me…All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.”Jackie Robinson,  

 Most of us readily collaborate with coworkers to keep our workplaces free from physical hazards.  Yet, how much energy do we invest in keeping our environments free of emotional toxins – i.e., the disrespect, ridicule, gossip and bullying that are as dangerous to our long-term wellbeing as any material contaminant?  This program will help you learn how you can contribute to an emotionally safe workplace where everyone feels accepted, appreciated, recognized and respected.  In this breakout session, we will explore how to:

  • Define emotional & psychological safety in the workplace
  • Put the focus on respect – especially when in conflict
  • Reset workplace expectations & core values
  • Establish & protect our professional boundaries
  • Let go of resentment & forgive prior offenses
