Putting Workload Management on the Agenda: Creating Awareness

Any thriving organization should have more work than can be accomplished in a day. A psychologically healthy and safe work environment allows you to do your job with the least amount of stress about work left to do.  Improving psychological health and safety is a process of continual improvement.  Everyone needs to be involved.  This session is focused on discussing what workload management means for you and/or your team in a practical way.  

We all deserve to provide a good day’s work and go home with our mental and physical well-being intact.  This workshop will focus on creating awareness of workload management and thinking about how to help reduce workload stress.

Managing Conflict in the Workplace

It can be frustrating when conflict is ongoing. Some conflict resolution approaches end with both parties feeling humiliated and neither party changing their behaviours. In this workshop, you'll learn a conflict resolution process designed to preserve the dignity of participants, avoid forced or insincere apologies, increase commitment to improving relationships and developing a process for accountability.
