How to Create and Maintain a Civil Workplace

Civility is a collection of positive behaviors that produce feelings of respect, dignity, and trust. A lack of civility at work can fracture a team, destroy collaboration, splinter employees’ sense of psychological safety, and interfere with productivity and profitability. Belittling, insults, malicious gossip and sabotage can quickly deflate confidence, destroy friendships, and erode trust.

Workplace incivility often comes across as rude, thoughtless, or inappropriate behavior. Unfortunately, it’s a growing problem for many organizations. Your job as a leader is to serve as role a model for respect and civility. You might also want to adopt a respectful workplace policy. Preventing incivility from getting out of hand and permeating your workplace is a top priority for many employers.

Have you personally witnessed or been a victim of incivility or disrespect at work? This often includes verbal or physical abuse, harassment or behaviors that undermine team spirit, morale, self esteem and safety.

  • Recognize early warning signs of incivility.

  • Use the Behavior Blindness Technique to address incivility.
