(Plus Jordan & Kerry talk Hot Zone, Julianna Margulies, NHL Draft plans, GoT, and a chance for you to win a free hat)
Mental wellness is a big topic these days, and we want to help you tackle these important issues. We’re offering a variety of half-day mental wellness related courses this year in cities all across BC.
We’re starting with Intervening in Workplace Conflict for Supervisors, which will help you understand conflict and anger, and barriers to conflict resolution and strategies for addressing conflict. We are bringing this course to Burnaby June 14 and Victoria on June 19.
In the afternoon of June 19 in Victoria, we have scheduled our Ensuring an Inclusive Workplace course. Among the topics covered are the importance of inclusive workplaces, understanding harassment, and identifying respectful behaviour.
We’re heading to Kelowna on July 5 for our morning half-day Understanding Trauma workshop, where you will acquire a basic understanding of trauma and critical incident stress, signs and symptoms of trauma, and how to support workers, among other topics. Our afternoon session in Kelowna is Mental Health in the Workplace – How Much Is It Costing You?. If your goal is increased productivity, retention of talent, less sick time/injuries then this is a must. This workshop helps employers and supervisors identify the cost savings when providing a workplace that is healthy.
We are also offering our Assertiveness – How To Set Boundaries and Avoid Conflict workshop in Burnaby on July 16, and in Prince George on August 16. This half-day session will allow workers and supervisors alike to understand the importance of being assertive and establishing workplace boundaries.
