Please join the WNG when we meet with Shelby Scarbrough, author of Civility Rules: Creating a Purposeful Practice of Civility and authority on protocol, who will discuss the with us how to create a purposeful practice of civility at work, home, and everywhere.
Is civility dead or just on life support? Why can’t we talk to one another anymore? Is your workplace toxic, or are certain subjects now taboo? Join us for a conversation with Shelby Scarbrough, author of Civility Rules, who will discuss with us how we can be a part of the solution. In this interactive session, we will consider the civility challenge through a different lens, and explore how to create a purposeful practice of civility.
