Road to Respect Path to Profit - Your Road Map to Business Seminar. "Respect is not simply the absence of disrespect. Respect is a way of being, a way of interacting, communicating, expressing power, approaching difference, leading and relating to others. Ideally it should form the foundation from which organization and team culture develop, so that respect becomes "the way it is around here." "Problem workplace behaviour does not occur in a vacuum. Like bacteria, it needs the right conditions to grow. It grows best in an unhealthy organizational culture" Road to Respect : Path to Profit

Think about the qualities you’d like to see in your workplace: engagement, creativity, innovation, passion, commitment, accountability and joy. 
Those qualities can’t flourish in a disrespectful culture.  To be successful in business today, you need to walk the talk of respect at work.
Now you might be thinking why respect?  How will respect help my organization be a leader in the marketplace?
The answer is simple:  Today’s employees come to the workplace with a host of differences in experience, outlook, temperament and behaviour.   Those differences influence workplace relationships and teams. They impact your ability to deliver quality products and services.  To be successful in business workplace relationships must be managed. 
Traditional power based, command and control systems of management just don’t work anymore. Technology has empowered today’s employees and they know their rights.    They want to be treated with respect. They want to contribute and expect to be empowered to do so. 
In this highly interactive presentation, Erica Pinsky shares the key lessons from her highly acclaimed book, Road to Respect: Path to Profit.
You will learn:           
  • how behaviour shapes culture which drives performance and profit.
  • how power is expressed through workplace culture – and how power based
  • behaviours like harassment and bullying create fear based cultures which stifle success.
  • how to build a resilient, cohesive and successful  team and workplace community  with  respectful  leadership. 
Participants will leave armed with information, practical tools and knowledge they can apply immediately – to transform themselves, their teams and their workplaces.
