Unmasking Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Understanding and identifying Sexual Harassment to create definitive boundaries
When is office flirting simply flirting and what lines of sexual harassment are blatantly crossed? When does "casual behavior" become a violation and how do you clearly define Sexual Harassment when there is a covert quality coexisting with overt offenses?
As society and workplace awareness grows to identify and address Sexual Harassment, this seminar will focus on understanding the origins of Sexual Harassment, creating a working definition of the issue, and provide problem-solving exercises and didactic information to utilize in successfully managing the problem.
Workplace Survival – Taking the Bite out of Dog Eat Dog
In business circles that are regularly described as "dog eat dog" and "swimming with sharks," where strategic deception is not only encouraged but rewarded, it is not surprising that psychic wounds occur with sweeping regularity. Often though, the cuts are hardly noticeable, inching their way into our framework of normality as if they were acceptable.
Day after day and experience after experience they compound into toxic levels of pain and trauma, leaving us to navigate against our better judgments, guiding principles or creative expressions. In some cases workplace trauma manifests as repression, anxiety, doubt, stress, and fear. Left unidentified or unaddressed, it can derail careers, decimate families and disastrously impact health.
In this workshop, you will learn to:
- Identify and understand the convergent influences of workplace trauma.
- Recognize overt, emerging and suppressed signs of trauma and their impacts on your professional and personal life.
- Implement successful prevention strategies by learning to identify red flags in your own behavior and workplace patterns that precipitate them.
- Incorporate survival skills into your daily routine to diminish, heal or transcend the effects of existing trauma.
