Dear Friend,

A professor at Georgetown University gave a short TED Talk in 2018 about her research on a virus that wreaked havoc across the United States in 2020. This was two years after she co-authored her second book on the cost of this virus and how to combat it.

If the timing of all that doesn’t seem quite right, you’ll be even more confused to learn that Christine Porath is not a virologist, but a professor in Georgetown’s college of business. It makes perfect sense, however, if you consider that the coronavirus isn’t the only infectious disease that plagues our country.

Porath studies incivility, and while it’s been around much longer than COVID-19, it’s been particularly troublesome the last few years. In my experience, all leaders can do at least three things to promote a more civil workplace.
