Training & Development
Our training and development services consist of workshops designed on a case-by-case basis to meet your company’s specific needs. Whether you require a half-day program or a 5-day leadership development program, we will work with you to determine what will be most beneficial for your employees.
Some of the topics we can cover in our training & development programs are as follows:
Mental wellness is often overlooked as a priority in the workplace. Employees may be reluctant to share personal information, while managers who want to help don’t know what to do. While investing in mental wellness in the workplace is worth the investment, it takes effort and time. This program will outline the complexity and growing priority of mental wellness in the workplace and how this can be integrated into all areas of Human Resources.
One of the most destructive behaviours between employees in the workplace is “lateral violence”. Lateral violence is displaced violence directed against one's peers rather than adversaries and the number one health and safety issue impacting many organizations. It can also deteriorate productivity, morale, quality of work, and creates a toxic workplace. The training that Legacy Bowes offers helps leaders in the organization learn how to address and prevent lateral violence in their workplace and on their teams. Once they’re able to take back control of the situation and mitigate tensions, employees can begin to thrive and work together, creating a productive, positive work environment.
Team building is one of the most important strategies for an effective company. Working as a unified team not only benefits the company, but also the employees by fulfilling their need to belong in the workplace. Learn what it takes to build a high-performing team. This program will highlight the importance of team building, allow you to become familiar with the 5 dysfunctions of a team, and provide strategies for building a strong team.
Organizational leaders are responsible for creating a work environment that enables people to thrive and be successful in their career. If turf wars, disagreements, and differences of opinion escalate into interpersonal conflict, managers must intervene to resolve the issues. This program provides an overview of interpersonal conflict in an organization and how to manage it effectively.
It is well-recognized that effective boards have knowledgeable members and effective relationships with their senior leadership. With this in mind, review your organization’s board structure and strategies. Develop a framework that will enable you to develop and maintain an effective relationship between yourself and the board going forward.
Community leadership through Chief and Council governance is key to the economic, social health and wellbeing of every community. This requires Chief and Council to be skilled at applying the 10 foundational core functions of good governance to build a strong community foundation. This workshop will delve into the 10 core functions and will enable Council to assess current operations/governance status and develop goals and objectives for the next 3-5 years.
Have you ever thought about the power of your message? The only message that counts is the one received. It doesn’t matter what you say or what you meant to say; what counts is what the receiver thought you said. This program provides an overview of the complexity and importance of managing messages to avoid conflict.
Workplace investigations can land employers in hot water with the law. Interviews must be thorough and accurate, data must be collected and analysed, and recommendations must be unbiased. Attending this workshop will teach you about a tried-and-true investigative tool, improve your interview skills, and help you gain the confidence to conduct a basic internal workplace investigation.
Do you experience pressure to hire friends and/or family that are not qualified? Is your interview process conducted and rated in a fair manner for all applicants? Do you find that you hire an individual but a few weeks into their role they just don’t seem to have the skills? How much frustration is there within the organization regarding the quality of new hires? Our Effective Recruitment program provides an overview of the recruitment process and delves into the development of progressive steps to minimize legal risks and increase quality hires.
