Respectfully interacting and communicating with your co-workers is the topic of this week’s Best of Respectful Workplace series. Below, you will learn from Erica Pinsky why communication and more specifically speaking up is the foundation of a respectful workplace. Melanie Sklarz will teach you how to create meaningful relationships with candid dialogue among diverse peers. Finally, Laura Lewis-Barr explains how fighting in the workplace hides under the surface and is often expressed through non-verbal communication.

In last month’s post, I featured an interview with values based top employer Nurse Next Door. Like other employers of choice I feature in Road to Respect, the workplace culture at Nurse Next Door empowers employees to speak up, to raise issues, to talk about problems and ask for help. Speaking up is a cultural norm that promotes organizational success.
