Lesson Plan

Workplace Ethic Training Activity #2: Employee Discomfort Discussion. In this second activity, current and recent employees are given a chance to speak to one another about any discomforts they feel in their working environments. Some examples could be:

You've worked in an uncomfortable situation with a boss who constantly lectures you for not doing something right. Your supervisor makes you feel like you're just being lazy and gives you the runaround every single day. One day he threatens you with a demotion if you don't do it the way he says. Or he makes you feel like you are worthless and need to be terminated.

Recently you've had problems with the department you work for, and one of the biggest complaints is how your boss talks down to you during your shift. Or how often he uses sexist or racist language when referring to women at work.

Your employer won't tell you anything about these incidents, and you can't get answers to your questions. If you are unsure how to handle an uncomfortable situation, consider getting some professional help. You can speak with a union representative, human resource consultant, or ethics adviser. But even then, these professionals aren't perfect. You'll still need to work with your co-workers to come up with solutions for the situation.

Your co-workers need to be aware of your behavior. It's important that you do what is expected of you. However, if you are acting out of spite, you'll find it tough to work with these coworkers. They might not trust you and will be reluctant to do the things they need to do to make your job easier. The good news is, however, that there are steps you can take to change your behavior.

Try thinking about how you interact with your work environment. Would your boss give you instructions when you behave badly? Do you always feel like you have to do something right every time you go to work? This is common in most people but can cause you to lose your sense of control. When you learn how to relax your personality and let go of any feelings of failure, you'll be better able to communicate with others.

Once you've changed your behavior, talk to your coworkers about how you are behaving, and try to see if they can help. You might be surprised how your co-workers can be helpful and give you valuable input about your current situation. And if you find yourself not getting along with any of them, you may find you need to find a new co-worker to work alongside you.

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into working in a work place. But with good ethics training, you can help your co-workers build the kind of work culture that will allow you to enjoy and thrive.

If you're not sure what kind of training you should do, consider talking with an employee relations specialist. If you have employees, you should be prepared to teach them the basics of workplace ethics training.

Employee relations specialists will be able to provide you with training that fits your needs. They'll also help you design the course so it's both effective and accessible for all employees. This way you won't have to make changes to the course, making sure it is effective for everyone.

So where does all the information about effective workplace ethics training come from? You can search the web, or contact a professional in the business. If you're not sure what the course should include, check with your employer's human resources department.

However, you can create effective training courses yourself, even if you don't have employees on staff. There are a few things you can do to make your own course more effective.
