The California School of Professional Psychology, OD in L.A., and the American Society for Training and Development– Los Angeles Chapter invite you to a co-sponsored presentation and discussion:

Workplace Civility: How Collegiality Interventions Prevent Burnout and Promote Engagement

with Michael Leiter, PhD, Canada Research Chair in Occupational Health and Wellbeing, Acadia University

Where? Room C4-West at Alliant International University in Alhambra (just east of downtown L.A.)

When? Wednesday May 15, 2013, 6:30pm - 8:30pm


How can organizations make the most of their most expensive and meaningful resource - people - when so many of them are experiencing burnout or low engagement? What can leaders do? It turns out that respect and civility make a big difference in employee engagement.

Dr. Leiter will discuss his research-based process (CREW: Civility, Respect, and Engagement with Work) that gives workgroups insight into their dynamics, helps them identify goals and take action to improve collegiality. This process improves relationships, increases engagement, commitment, and satisfaction.

His presentation also appeals to leaders to apply the principles underlying the CREW intervention to solve a variety of challenges that undermine employees’ work engagement.

Michael Leiter is one of the world’s premier experts on workplace engagement and burnout, and a consultant to Canadian health systems and many other organizations. Through his consulting practices in Canada and the USA, Dr. Leiter works with organizations to bring state-or-the-art solutions to improving employees’ engagement with their work. In addition to providing workshops on workplace civility to organizations and teams, Dr. Leiter provides an intensive group process for improving collegiality to workgroups.
