Bullying prevention training course for leaders – Face to Face

face-to-face/virtual live – 1/2 day course

SmartCulture® 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 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.
