Object123 is the first of the three steps in the Civility123 toolkit for resolving a dispute that originates from incivility or misbehavior during a conversation, discussion, or negotiation.
When we disagree during these times we can tend to get defensive and be prone to become less civil in our behavior. We believe that by identifying and objecting to any incivility, in real-time during disagreements we can nip in the bud any potential for long term disputes.
There is no need to learn how to behave you simply need to speak up when you have taken offence to what was said or done by the other person.
Object123 consists of:
- Caution and receive an simple acknowledgment or escalate to:
- Object and receive an simple apology or escalate to:
- Stop and receive an acceptable apology or inform them you are going to STEP 2.
If you cannot get an acceptable resolution to the issue causing the offense and dispute (not the actual disagreement), then you can escalate it to step 2 of Civility123, which is posting our dispute on the Disputz review network.
