Navigating the Changing Workplace

with Canada's Civility Expert 


business people  

We are faced with a new social landscape that includes a multi-generational, multi-cultural and multi-technological workforce. 


Culture shifts are changing the way we work, leaving many of us searching for ways to build more productive workplace relationships.


Social capital refers to the extent to which trust, mutual understanding and shared values bind members of an organization. It impacts communication, productivity, co-worker relationships and the bottom line.


QNET is pleased to announce that Canada's leading expert on civility in the workplace, Lew Bayer, will present Leveraging Social Capital at Work on Wednesday, February 13.


During this full day workshop, you will learn to:

  • Understand the factors driving change in your workplace.
  • Communicate more effectively; face-to-face, in print and digitally.
  • Engage in more civil discourse at work and set workplace standards for civility.
  • Boost your (and your co-worker's) social competence and confidence.

"Failure is not to be feared. 

It is from failure that most growth comes; provided that one can recognize it, admit it, learn from it, rise above it, 

and try again."
