Workplace Evolution Workshop
This is not a theory-based course. You will be provided with proper tools and assignments to actually change mindset the mindset of your employees.
WORKPLACE EVOLUTION: CHANGING MENTAL HEALTH CULTURE
Company culture has a significant impact on whether a company is able to accomplish its most significant goals. Poor mental health in the workplace costs employers thousands of dollars each year from lost-time, lost productivity, costs associated with workplace mental stress claims, costs of running benefits programs, and more. Creating positive workplace cultures needs to be a goal of every employer across Canada. Employees should feel that their workplace is a safe space and they should be comfortable discussing mental health issues with management. But where do we start? Changing the organizational culture can feel like rolling square rocks up a hill.
This workshop series will take place over 6 weeks via webinar. Each session, we will build the foundations needed to change workplace culture and provide leadership with the needed skills to gain trust and confidence from their workers. This is not a theory-based course. It’s not going to be full of ideas with no outcomes. You will be provided with tools and assignments to actually change mindset and you’ll leave with a trainer delivery program to roll out to your own managers and supervisors. After all, the best lessons learned are the ones you can share.

Can you identify the toxic behaviours common in your workplace? As leaders we know that behaviour and attitude are two of the toughest things to change. So how do we deal with these behaviours? How do we intervene and de-escalate before toxic behaviours seep into our culture? In session three, we will discuss some of the common toxic behaviours found in the workplace, and how we can identify, control and eliminate them.

Thursday, March 14, 2019 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT
Soft skill training for leaders is missing in most workplaces. In this session, we will apply soft skills to approach/help those in crisis and have the important, difficult conversation.

SESSION 5: ACCOMMODATION BEFORE CLAIM: BUILDING YOUR PREVENTION PROGRAM
Thursday, March 21, 2019 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT
Successful workplace programs focus on prevention rather than reaction. Part of evolving a positive mental health culture is learning how to understand the steps of accommodation before it becomes a claim. Our tool kit for this session includes accommodation for mental health, developing a prevention program and how to manage a claimant and the return to work process.
SESSION 6: PUTTING IT TO PRACTICE
