WOW May | Tuesday, May 16
Guest Speaker: Loretta Sieman
Community Volunteer & Advocate
It’s no secret that we all have bad days, but how your negative mood impacts productivity and others at work can have a long-lasting impact. Loretta Sieman has been involved with school boards, city council and other government organization as well as held several corporate vice president-level positions.
Today, she has seen a gamut of behaviors that demonstrate a lack of respect and civility, both inside and outside the workplace. And it’s a problem that is only getting worse. Incivility, bullying, harassment, and discrimination affect the bottom line because these behaviors increase anxiety, depression, absenteeism, presenteeism, and turnover – which in turn, decreases motivation, quality of work, job satisfaction, and ability to meet goals.
Join us in May as she shares about how important it is to respect and treat people the way you want to be treated, because if incivility prevails, communication stops, problems can’t be solved and people can’t learn.
