Skill Building Seminars
Skill building seminars are guided practice sessions designed to reinforce
learning and motivate participants to apply new skills back on the job.
We offer four seminars following the Respectful Workplace Training. Each seminar
focuses on one of the skills from the full-day training workshop:
the perspective of others – the difference between needs and solutions
2. Shifting judgement to curiosity – the
importance of questioning and listening
3. The role of the bystander
– how to be a constructive sounding board
4. Regaining respectful dialogue – apologizing, contrasting, and
raising issues constructively
Each seminar provides participants with an in-depth opportunity to:

Working with executives and employees, we focus on the behavioural
changes necessary to foster respectful working relationships. Our coaching helps clients develop new ways to interact with
colleagues based on the concepts and skills taught during a training workshop.
Combined with self awareness exercises
and organizational feedback, a coach provides support to practice new skills and enhance the competencies the client already
brings to their job.
Through a coaching relationship, clients come to understand their role in:
• creating a respectful workplace – what strengths do I have to offer, what behaviour to I need
to change and how?
• working as a part of a team – what is my preferred
work style and how does it impact others?
• resolving conflict – how
have I contributed to the current conflict and what can I do to end it?
coaching is intended as a targeted support measure to select participants. These include individuals who play a leadership
role in maintaining a respectful workplace or those whose behaviour has been identified as inappropriate.
