Boise’s City Club is set to launch its year-long program tackling civility and problem solving on November 4. The club, established by Dottie Simpson and her husband over 20 years ago, has been successful in upholding its mission to establish open civil dialogues on important issues affecting both the city and the state of Idaho. For its civility program this year, the City Club is aiming to educate and encourage people to listen about how Boise and Idaho are handling and solving problems. This way, civil discussions about the various issues can happen and it will provide an opportunity for all concerned parties to be heard, become involved and eventually find a way to collaborate together.
The City Club’s civility program is a good example of how civility at work should be maintained. In some organizations, teams or employees may have a difference of opinion or a different way of approaching a problem, which sometimes lead to confrontations.

Building a civil workplace is something that business leaders and HR professionals should also prioritize, apart from attaining business goals. Cultivating a positive working culture is key in building employee morale and boosting productivity.
