A Humanistic Approach to Civility - and Dignity

Civility isn't just a moral good,
it's a social and economic good. 

Civility and dignity - isn't just about being nice to each other, though ... that is nice.  It's also about how we deal with and cope with people who are different than us.

Diversity is difficult. Dealing with people who don't share our backgrounds or religions, is difficult. And yet, most of us navigate that just fine - by being civil to each other. Through civility - we recognize our common humanity and dignity and worth of the people we are interacting with.

That civility - allows us to work together and through that work - exchange goods and services with people who are different from us. It allows us create and generate wealth - separately - yet together.  It is the glue that holds communities together.

I have been thinking a lot about civility lately as I was asked to create a civility course from a Humanistic perspective by the folks at the Global Dignity Project. https://globaldignity.org/ 

I based the content I created on the work of Donna Hicks - who I had the pleasure of interviewing a while back: http://humanisticmanagement.international/leading-with-dignity-a-conversation-with-donna-hicks/

In this program we will talk about what civility is and why it’s beneficial to you – as an individual to behave in a professional dignified manner with others.  And how to maintain your dignity in difficult situations.

There are 2 lessons in this course. 

  • A Humanistic Approach to Civility
  • Using Dignity to Create Civility
The course is approved for both HRCI & SHRM continuing education credit and can be paired with other programs to create a group training.
