Microaggressions are “brief and commonplace verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults that potentially have harmful or unpleasant psychological impact on the target person or group.” Microaggressions are like paper cuts to the human spirit—they are abrupt and subtle, but cause lingering pain. When left unchecked in the workplace, they threaten relationships and performance.
Dealing effectively with microaggressions at work requires a willingness to: shift our perspective, sit with uncomfortable feelings, de-escalate our own emotions, and be curious about others’ experiences. In this interactive webinar we will examine various types of microaggression and how they show up in the workplace. We’ll explore the importance of separating intention from impact in order to drive productive dialogue and connection. Using real-life scenarios, we will practice responding in ways that are productive and authentic, creating a foundation for a work culture of engagement and inclusion.
