It's Time to Bring Back Courtesy to the Workplace
Communication and workplace interactions have changed significantly over the past few decades. More and more of our work today is conducted impersonally, with technologies like email, voicemail, and teleconferences taking prevalence over face-to-face interactions.
Although convenient, the increase in digital and virtual communication may be having an adverse effect on the level of respect being shown between employees in your organization. This timely article offers tips for bringing courtesy back to the workplace.
Empathy Can Go a Long Way at the Office
Making it in the business world can often require making tough and unpopular decisions. However, that doesn’t mean there is no place for empathy or appreciation.
Leaders who show concern and genuine empathy for their employees tend to foster a culture of loyalty and discretionary effort, where employees go above and beyond and morale is high. This article explains why you don’t have to be “touchy-feely” or let empathy get in the way of your ability to do business, but instead understand how a little appreciation can go a long way to make your company productive and a better place to work.
A Note of Reflection
In light of the tragedy in Boston, many of us have been prompted to reflect on the state of the environment and world we live in today.
In this blog post, Aubrey shares his own thoughts on the tragedy and offers a picture of the world imagined by Dr. B.F. Skinner; one that we all wish would come true. His insight on how the science of behavior and positive chains of change can help us impact the world around us provides a small measure of reassurance and comfort knowing that we do have the ability to positively influence the problems we face.
