Professionalism & Disruptive Behavior

We recognize that some people struggle with professionalism at work which results in behaviors that disrupt the work environment. Professionalism can be defined as: each individual taking responsibility for his or her personal choices, decisions, and actions that consistently demonstrate respect, integrity, dignity, and ethical character to others. We all have a responsibility to contribute to a professional environment through our comments and actions.

Disruptive behaviors can include: inappropriate and disrespectful behaviors and mild bullying. Safe at Hopkins includes information about the Johns Hopkins Continuum of Disruptive Workplace Behaviors.

The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) can support an employee and his or her manager by providing one-on-one coaching that helps manage the disruptive behavior.
