Legacy Business Cultures has studied and worked with a variety of organizational cultures from around the world. Through our cultural surveys, training, coaching and speaking, we’ve helped more than a quarter million leaders and employees create more respectful and engaged workplaces.
Paul Meshanko, CEO of Legacy Business Cultures, is returning to this year’s ATD 2018: International Conference and Exposition to present The Respect Effect: Leveraging Science and Anthropology to Shape Workplace Culture.
For almost 20 years, Legacy Business Cultures has proudly sent our “Coffee and Keynote” inspirational quotes every weekday morning to thousands of online subscribers. Last year alone, we sent out over 2 million individual messages sharing wisdom of the ages on leadership, teamwork, personal effectiveness and respect to readers around the world. So I have to admit that I was caught completely off guard on morning when one of our subscribers sent us a rather pointed email message stating that she was very upset with the quotations and was considering unsubscribing from the service.

Let’s face it. We’re in a different place than we were just a few months ago when it comes to both the substance and emotions surrounding the topic of sexual harassment. As in other situations, a new landscape requires a new strategy. In this case, it also requires a stronger sense of urgency to address the topic of harassment training head-on and in a meaningful, comprehensive fashion. Here are 4 important guidelines they may help your organization.
As women (and in some cases men), the majority of us have been there — the unwanted sexual advances, texts, calls, touches, and jokes in the workplace. I have listed my do's and don’ts for men and women in the workplace. I've added a bit of humor to help the advice go down a little easier. In my opinion, “What would my Southern Mama think?” is the best tool to combat sexual harassment in the workplace!
A Code of Cooperation is a document created by people who work together to encourage an emotionally healthy work environment. It accomplishes this by formally establishing common behavioral expectations that can be supported by all. Codes of Cooperation may articulate both behaviors which a group wishes to encourage as well as those to be avoided. They should be created with input from all group members and are most effective when embraced and supported by everyone.
Unconscious bias is a part of our evolutionary nature. However, it can have many negative effects when it leads to exclusionary behavior within organizations. The following article discusses why biases occur and reveals how we can break through them in order to promote and receive the benefits of more inclusive workplace cultures.
The following video was taken from a presentation for MGM of The Respect Effect by Paul Meshanko. In it, he describes how disrespectful behavior among coworkers can cause harmful mental and physical effects as well as reduced engagement, productivity and resilience.
In the following video, Paul Meshanko explains that, when people are treated with disrespect at work, negative effects may be caused not only to their engagement and productivity, but also may become more prone to stress related physical and mental damages.
Turning training into a game can be a great method to enhance learning as well as an opportunity for coworkers to engage with each other on a more personal level. When it comes to maintaining productivity, the most important thing is to make your people feel part of a team. Make the process fun and allow everyone to be themselves.
