Our Harassment awareness and skills training reflects the modern workplace and develops your Leaders and Managers not about the law, but rather the practise of how to spot, respond to, report, and prevent workplace harassment of all types, be it sexual, bullying, race, gender or cultural harassment. This can relate to current issues as well as approaches to historical cases and challenges.
The aim is to help Leaders and Managers understand the continuum between the Law and sensible practise to know how to avoid ‘crossing the line’ of acceptability consciously, or more worryingly, unconsciously…!
- We discuss pressing and challenging issues faced today as a result of legal and social changes
- We focus on specific attitudes, actions and behaviours
- We move beyond trite scenarios to examine context, ambiguous lines between professional and social relationships and the roles of power and consent
- We identify ‘principles’ to allow people to know how to assess specific actions or behaviours so they understand what is acceptable within any culture or context
This programme can either be a 1 day training course, team coaching programme or coaching for individuals.
- Moving from a ‘tick box’ approach to behaviour by affecting attitude change to the subject of harassment
- Understanding the ‘signs’ of where the risk of harassment could exist with specific tools and methods to allow for the mitigation of any risk

- The key legislative areas with implications for the workforce
- Strategies for good practise in investigating accusations including: issue handling, historical data collection and process development
