Leadership Development - Dealing with Bad Behavior at Work.
The second Lunch and Learn of October is being presented by Thunderbird School of Global Management.
Christine Pearson, Ph.D., Professor of Global Leadership at Thunderbird School of Global Management, has built a worldwide reputation as one of the foremost authorities on the role of strategic preparation in heading off workplace crises. As an expert on dysfunctional workplace behavior, she has also studied and developed insights and solutions regarding the costs and causes of problems that escalate from incivility and aggression among employees. Dr. Pearson's most recent book is “The Cost of Bad Behavior: How Incivility is Damaging Your Business and What to Do About It,” which makes a business case for managing workplace civility. During this Lunch and Learn, Professor Pearson will discuss:
Who Should Attend
- How to estimate what seemingly insignificant disrespect among employees is costing your organization
- How to get incivility under control
- What to do if you're the target of bad behavior from co-workers
