Respect in the Workplace: Is it really that difficult? @ Engaged HR
Nov 1 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Respect in the Workplace: Is it really that difficult? @ Engaged HR

Without question, we are seeing a rise in bullying and harassment complaints in organizations, leading to a rise in investigations, a rise in stress leaves amongst employees, and in some cases the destruction of teams and organizational culture. As HR professionals, we know that this doesn’t have to be the case. Building a respectful workplace is often the key to creating a stronger, more positive culture where employees are valued, supported, and empowered to contribute their best on a daily basis.

In this workshop, learning topics will include:

developing an understanding of what a respectful workplace looks like and how to cultivate it as a manager;
how to manage performance with constructive feedback;
how to empower respectful behaviours and address disrespectful behaviours.

The Art of People Management @ Engaged HR
Nov 8 @ 9:00 am – Dec 6 @ 4:00 pm
The Art of People Management @ Engaged HR

As a manager, you are responsible for managing “the employee experience” at work. What does this responsibility involve? It requires placing a very strategic and intentional focus on creating the people management skills that contributes to effective performance among all your staff members.

This 3-day interactive program is designed to support managers of all levels through the various stages of the employee experience, creating the necessary leadership skills and strategies to effectively manage people to top performance and high engagement. The focus on the content is to develop an understanding of respectful workplace communications while understanding that each person in the organization has something of value to contribute.

Each section of the program focuses on a supervisory theme, including:

Essential Supervisory Skills
Effective Workplace Communication
Respect in the Workplace
Resolving Workplace Conflict
Appreciation in the Workplace
Managing Day to Day People Challenges
This 3 day program takes place over a 4 week period and is designed with breaks between the learning days to allow participants the opportunity to try out their learning. Throughout the training, participants are encouraged to commit to actions that will support and expand their learning. As an added value, following the training, all participants are provided with a “one-to-one” follow-up conversation with the program facilitator. The focus of these calls is to provide support for individual leadership needs and current HR challenges.

The Art of People Management is designed to support managers, supervisors and team leaders on their leadership journey.
