Workplace Confessionals

Posted on June 18, 2016


This is a tool in the ELGL Workforce Development Toolbox.


  • Sometimes, optimizing the performance of your employees is as simple as not making gaffes that can demoralize or diminish employees.
  • Or, when dealing with community members or elected officials – recognizing bad behavior and then ensuring that it doesn’t happen again.
  • Learning from others’ mistakes can be an effective way to build a more cohesive and inclusive workplace.


  • ELGL is collecting workplace gaffes and knuckleheaded comments, and compiling them here in an effort to showcase the behaviors that do not contribute to positive work environments.
  • Use the form below to submit your stories (anonymously, if you prefer) and we’ll compile them for you to review, learn from, and use as examples.
  • Maybe your story ended up in HR – maybe it didn’t. We can all learn from your experiences and hopefully ensure that others don’t have to endure the same treatment that you did.


  • Managing staff
  • Changing workplace cultures


  • Please use the below form to share your experiences. We’ll periodically feature these so we can all learn from them and not repeat the same mistakes.
