The Legal Mind Podcast: Workplace Banter - there is room for it, but where is the line?
How to manage banter and build people's confidence to call it out
Banter is part of every day life, and in the workplace can help build relationships and a sense of belonging, but it can cross the line and lead to people feeling uncomfortable, excluded, harassed or discriminated. In this episode Elizabeth Rimmer (CEO of LawCare) talks with Stella Chandler (Director of Development at Focal Point Training) about banter. Stella is an experienced trainer, facilitator and coach who works with clients to tackle inappropriate behaviour in their organisations and build inclusive cultures.
In this podcast Stella shares her insights and the research Focal Point have done with CISI (Chartered Institute for Securities & Investments) into workplace banter and the negative long term impact this can have on both people and organisations. She also talks about the practical steps that organisations can take to manage banter and build people's confidence to call it out.
