Have you observed any of these in your workplace? People don't say please and thank you. People text during meetings. People pass blame or grab credit. People show up late with no explanation. People grab credit. If you said yes to any of these, you've got incivility in the workplace! 

Studies show that workplace incivility leads almost half of employees to intentionally deliver poor quality work and intentionally deliver it late. Incivility further leads employees to take it out on customers. Employees who are on the receiving end of incivility spend their time worrying about the incident and avoiding the "perpetrator" instead of focusing on their work.

Workplace ethics and civility are powerfully connected. What we call "manners" are behaviors developed over time to build trust. People treasure their personal dignity, and thrive when treated with respect. In the workplace, ethical lapses are more likely to happen if an organization's environment is uncivil. On the other hand, polite, reasonable, and respectful behavior wins the war when it comes to lasting prestige and power.
