Leadership Training & Skills Development: How to Discipline Effectively
Recorded: January 20, 2021
Discipline should not simply be “writing up” an employee when an infraction has been made. The purpose of discipline is to correct behaviour, not to punish or embarrass. Communication, coaching and mentoring may resolve issues without having to discipline employees, but if unacceptable behaviour is a persistent problem or if the employee is involved in misconduct that cannot be tolerated, discipline should be used to help correct the problem
Compliance vs. Culture: Shifting from Strict Rules to a Culture of Using Good Judgement
Recorded: December 8, 2020
Is your workplace all about the rules? Do you have a policy for every single scenario that could possibly occur in the workplace? It is impossible to try and control absolutely everything in the workplace with a policy or memo. At some point enough is enough, and we need to work on changing our culture to one where employees are able to use good judgement and not have to worry about every aspect of their days being control by policies. Join us as we discuss how to start this culture change in our workplaces.
What is Undue Hardship
Recorded: September 8, 2020
My employee hurts themselves outside of work, do I need to accommodate their modified duties? What if I don’t have any other work for them? If they have kids, do I have to change the employee's hours if they ask? What is considered undue hardship when it comes to accommodating employees under Human Rights Legislation? Join us to learn what your responsibilities are when it comes to accommodation and how high of a threshold "undue hardship" actually is.
Recorded: June 9, 2020
Managing workload can be hard in this fast paced world we live in. How do you keep up with competing priorities? On top of that, supervisors and managers sometimes find themselves facing accusations of harassment, when in fact they were merely directing the work of employees. How can you be more effective in managing workload and directing work? Join us and learn a few tricks and improve your delivery and approach.
Afraid to Discipline? Don't Like Confrontation?
Recorded: March 10, 2020
In this 50-minute webinar, we will assist workplaces in learning how to have a constructive, fruitful conversation, without discipline. Coaching, mentoring and consequences needs to be the dialogue. Join us and get a few tips on how to move away from discipline and confrontation and towards a more impactful conversation.
Get a New Job - Professional Development
Recorded: October 8, 2019
We all know about dealing with work stress, job demands and employee burnout. But, when is it time to say, “maybe this type of job just isn’t for you”? Sometimes we have employees who got into a particular job or field because they thought they would like it, but in reality, they don’t like the tasks, can’t cope with certain aspects, or could be doing so much more. This session is going to explore these types of situations and how to go about having a professional development conversation with your employees. Do they have skills that can be worked on to get them to the next level in your company? Do they have transferrable skills that might be better suited to a different job altogether?
Dealing with Marijuana in the Workplace
Recorded: July 9, 2019
Are you sick of talking about this yet? It has been almost a year since Marijuana became legal and some employers and employees are still struggling to wrap their head around how to handle it in the workplace. This session will discuss the responsibilities of all workplace parties, dealing with fit for duty, and when accommodations are needed.
Dealing with Difficult Conversations
Recorded: April 9, 2019
There are a lot of unpleasant things that managers and employers have to deal with in the workplace, but avoiding them does not make them go away. Often it makes the situation much worse. This session will teach supervisors, managers and employers how to deal with situations head on and have the difficult conversations with their workers. We will address scenarios such as: when an employee is unfit for duty, when you suspect someone is experiencing mental health issues, or talking to an employee who has experienced the loss of a loved one.
Recorded: January 8, 2019
How we interact with our co-workers, management, clients and others affects our workplace and our well-being. Disrespectful communication often leads to claims of harassment and bullying in the workplace. This session will assist in the awareness of how to communicate respectfully taking into consideration both verbal and non-verbal methods of communication, including tone of voice, body language, emails, texting, etc.
