"In the ‘olden days’ people used to show RESPECT!” “We don’t have to invite each other home for dinner; we just need to be CIVIL around here.” Do either of these statements sound familiar? The workplace; school; volunteer opportunity; or other environment where we work with more than ourselves requires a modicum of acceptable interpersonal social behavior. Defining “acceptable behavior” and determining whether we want to practice it are our challenges. We’re not talking about the complexities of productive teamwork here. We’re talking just getting along with others with whom we must spend time. In this success segment we will: (a.)Define “civil/ity”, “right”, “correctness”, and “appropriate behavior”, (b.) Determine the importance of being civil and practicing appropriate social behaviors, and (c.) Identify specific behaviors that eliminate—or at least minimize—contentiousness in environments where people must work, learn, play, volunteer, pray, and otherwise be together…not necessarily having picked each other’s company by choice.
