Event Detail

Workshop 1A: Counselling is the New HR (Roundtable Scenarios)

Thu, Sep 27, 2018
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
[Choose between Workshop 1A or 1B]

Speaker(s): Dr. Allister Webster

Location: Studio 11

As the boundaries between work and personal life dissolve, Managers, Supervisors and HR Professionals find themselves having conversations with staff that covers topics ranging from work to life-related issues. 

Work related issues such as stress, overwork, bullying and difficult colleagues, can directly impact an employee’s performance.

Life-crisis issues such as bereavement and loss, relationship and family difficulties, substance misuse (including alcohol issues) and stresses at home, can all preoccupy someone’s thinking and distract them from work.

Join this interactive session to enhance your toolkit on how to have conversations with staff that will help you to;

  • better engage with employees with problems,
  • develop skills in empathy,
  • demonstrate a more open and transparent manner,
  • build a closer trusting relationship with the staff member, and
  • know when and how to refer the employee to outside resources.

Attendees who sign up for this session in advance will have the opportunity to participate in a pre-session survey to identify topics of interest to you.  Whether it’s how to deal with an employee who has had a sudden loss or how to practice self-care during a difficult termination, topics will be directly related to the attendees interest.
