Workplace Respect


ECAA has partnered with Mechanical Contractors Association (MCA) Alberta to offer the following course:

Very few people intend to be disrespectful toward others. Yet, under stress we sometimes say and do things that damage working relationships without realizing it. Learn how to “show up” in ways that demonstrate respect for them and for yourself.

Upon completion of this session, frontline staff, supervisors, and managers will be able to:

  • Define respectful behavior
  • Identify their natural “interaction” style
  • Realize how they may unintentionally show disrespect for others (“blind spots”)
  • Know what their team members need from them in terms of respectful actions
  • Create a team charter for respect in the workplace

Julianna Cantwell is the President of JUNA Consulting Inc., a strategic HR consulting practice that helps organizations improve individual and group performance.
