Interactive Leaders Guide
For resolving and promoting a respectful and collaborative workplace
The PEEL Interactive Guide for Leaders: Resolving and Promoting a Respectful and Collaborative Workplace is a support tool developed for leaders when they are managing concerns in their teams.
Your role as a Leader is integral to achieving a Respectful and Collaborative Workplace that is characterised by strong communication and effective relationships. Conflict is an inevitable part of working life. It can and should be positive.
As a Leader you have the responsibility to not only respond to an employee who raises a workplace concern or conflict but also to monitor the team to identify if a concern or conflict is sparked before it is raised with you and respond accordingly. Identifying workplace concerns or conflict early and managing them in a timely and effective manner, best places you and your team to achieve a respectful and collaborative workplace which is built on strong communication and relationships.
PEEL is passionate about the early intervention of conflict in order to avoid its escalation to destructive stages that could involve bullying. The key to early intervention is our leaders and ensuring they are skilled to identify and work to assist in the resolution of conflict. Many times in our mediations, investigations and training we have heard from leaders that they have not assisted the resolution of conflict early because they haven’t known what to do or say.
Our Interactive Leaders Guide on resolving conflict and promoting a Respectful and Collaborative Workplace is a tool that leaders can refer to on the job. It contains very practical information and 5 short videos that leaders can watch to hear the words and be aware of the potential curve balls they might be thrown.
For building respect
The Building Respect and Collaboration Leaders Toolkit provides Leaders with a series of learning tools which allows you to embed the principles of a Respectful Workplace into their team environments following the organisation’s EEO or Respectful Workplace Training sessions.
The aim of the “Toolkit for Leaders” is to provide Leaders with a series of learning tools which allows them to lead conversations and activities within their teams that embeds the principles of a Respectful Workplace and keeps the learning alive. The activities can roll out over a 12-24 month period essentially becoming part of a monthly meeting as standing agenda item.
