The impact of micro-behaviours

Introduction

It might just be that quick glance at your watch, failing to acknowledge a colleague’s suggestion, checking your texts in a meeting or forgetting a name. But the little things we do say a lot about what we’re really thinking - and send powerful messages to those around us.

We believe that equality is about recognising and promoting people’s rights and responsibilities in ways that support the creation of an inclusive working and customer service environment.

Developed in partnership with leading business psychology consultancy Pearn Kandola LLP, this training solution examines the impact of micro-behaviours in the workplace and looks at the crucial role they can play in building positive working relationships.

E-learning outcomes

This course will give a better understanding of:

  • What micro-messages are, how and why we send them and their impact in the workplace
  • The damage caused by the negative micro-messages that we send ('micro-inequities') and the business case for tackling them
  • How our behaviour can reflect our unconscious bias and how recognising and actively challenging this bias can deliver huge benefits
  • How using positive micro-messages ('micro-affirmations') can improve employee engagement, enhance performance, unlock creativity and help build collaborative, cohesive teams.
