Blindspots and Inappropriate Behavior

The Workplace Color Spectrum® Series

Sometimes, it’s difficult for people to respond to an inappropriate comment, especially in the workplace. Bad behavior can happen because of our blindspots. How can co-workers be allies when they hear an inappropriate comment? They can use the colors in the Workplace Color Spectrum® to make it simple and easy to provide feedback.

Microlesson Description

In this microlesson, we illustrate how co-workers can provide instant feedback in a non-confrontational way when they see inappropriate behavior. If we all give feedback when we see bad behavior, we'll create a more respectful workplace.

Key Concepts

  • Use the Workplace Color Spectrum® to pause and analyze behaviors, rate the behavior, then take action.
  • How to give someone feedback that their behavior is “orange” when they see rude or insensitive behavior. 
  • Learn how to stop and apologize when you’re aware of saying something inappropriate.
  • Why bad behavior can happen because of our blindspots.

This microlesson series is recommended as actionable next steps for every organization that received insights through Emtrain’s Respect Scorecard based on assigned training and courses.
