Fostering a Civil Workplace

–As a Guest of The Dan Smolen Podcast

As organizations reintroduce their people to the workplace, they must also reckon with social responsibility. It is one thing for management to express a desire for positive social change. It is quite another to “walk the talk” to create a civil work environment.

Sejal Thakkar understands the sting of incivility like few others. During her teenage years in the Chicago suburbs, she suffered from near-daily racial prejudice and bullying. Now, as a self-described Chief Civility Officer; Sejal uses her personal experience to provide effective workplace training that fosters civility.

In this episode, Sejal:

  • Describes her role as Chief Civility Officer for TrainXtra. Starts at 2:57
  • Relives growing up as a bullied “other” in the Chicago suburbs. Starts at 4:26
  • Relates the experience of representing clients accused of workplace incivility, bias, and discrimination. Starts at 7:52
  • Defines the term microagression. Starts at 21:58
  • Pairs the civility narrative with the return to the workplace. Starts at 29:39
  • Explains how fostering a civil workplace provides positive ROI benefits. Starts at 32:12

In the wake of Covid, remote work, and civil unrest, Sejal believes that we have hit an inflection point for fostering a civil workplace:

[There have been] so many things happening in such a short period of time that people are not putting up with B.S. at work, anymore.
