Workshop: “How Little Things Lead to Big Problems: Microaggressions in the Workplace”

One day someone interrupts Jane in a meeting, and she responds harshly, in a way that seems disproportionate to the slight. Why? Is there something more going on here than first meets the eye. Microaggressions are small verbal and non-verbal slights, snubs, and insults. They happen more than we may think, and over time they carry a weight that ultimately corrodes and ruins the relationships organizations need to thrive. In the session, you will learn about microaggressions, what they are and how they impact employees. You will also hear practical tips for addressing them and reducing their impact on you and your employees.
