face-to-face/virtual live – 1/2 day course
bullying & harassment prevention course for leaders
Now more than ever we need our leaders in Australian workplaces to be great, respectful and safe. This starts with educating them and providing practical guidance and tools to understand the risks of poor and unsafe workplace behaviours. This paves the way for them to ‘Walk the Talk’, manage concerns appropriately and ultimately – prevent poor behaviours in the first place.
Great workplace cultures rely on great leaders. Let’s get them off to a great start with this course.
About this course
This premium face-to-face half-day course was developed by WHS + culture industry expert Karen Maher to raise awareness and provide key information to Australian leaders on building a great workplace culture and preventing poor and unsafe behaviours like bullying, harassment, sexual harassment and racial discrimination.
Leaders need practical guidance and tools to be great in this space. This program adds an extra leadership layer to the employee course – guiding your leaders to be proactive, supportive and have the tools to respond to any concerns promptly, fairly and appropriately.
This course is created in alignment with our SmartCulture® solution – developed based on years of research, cases and best practice in these key risk areas – with 5 components – safety, measurable, awareness, respect and team. It is up-to-date with recent research and cases in Australia and overseas – for e.g covering the emerging role of active bystanders and recent research, recommendations and updates in the area of sexual harassment.
FAQs, Topics Covered & Assessment
This course covers all of the foundation information on workplace bullying and harassment, including a strong focus on sexual harassment, then adds an important leadership layer across the top. It covers what to do if you or a team member has a concern, how as a leader to respond to a concern, key duties and prevention strategies.
Is face-to-face learning the right solution for your workplace?
If you prefer a more interactive training model allowing for interactive activities like scenarios/role plays and lots of discussion, then face-to-face or virtual-live learning is for you.
If you want your leaders to receive all of the key information and guidance where they can simply log on and learn at their own pace – without the logistics of setting up face-to-face or virtually live sessions, e-learning is the better option for you.
