Our workplace discrimination, harassment and bullying training for managers emphasises that managers and senior leaders are the custodians of an organisation’s workplace culture. In the first half of the day, the program reinforces that effective leadership is key to preventing bullying, harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Participants will have the opportunity to explore effective leadership and will learn about the leadership styles that heighten the risk of workplace issues and the potential for litigation.
In the second half of the day, program participants gain an understanding of how to approach and conduct conversations to address inappropriate workplace behaviour. Participants practice having the difficult conversations with an iHR Australia actor who assumes various personas that may be encountered in a workplace. An expert facilitator coaches and guides participants through the skill practice session. This approach provides participants with a realistic simulation in which to practice an essential workplace skill. Key concepts and practices are illustrated utilising iHR Australia’s unique Workplace Reality Theatre.
