Course description

Sensitivity Training for Managers

Our common-sensed approach to sensitivity training is different from other training providers. Instead of delivering what is really just a – legally-focused/legally-centric discrimination prevention course – and labeling it “sensitivity or harassment prevention training”, we actually identify & address the causes of insensitive, disrespectful or harassing behavior.  Yes, we tackle the legal issues, but they do little to actually change a person’s behavior or thinking.

We believe the vast majority of  managers don’t come to work looking to intentionally be insensitive, disrespectful or harassing.  In some cases, the workplace might have become too casual or comfortable; the line between personal and professional has become blurred and someone says or does something they shouldn’t. In other cases, something happens: someone gets angry; they open their mouth; their brain stops and quite frankly, they say or do something stupid! We work with the learners to identify their communication and behavior styles and to better understand how their words or actions may be perceived (or misperceived) by others…in many cases, it’s not just what was said or done…it was how or it was where it was said. In our training, learners build action plans to improve their part in developing a more respectful  and harassment-free workplace. When we are delivering sensitivity training for managers, we emphasize & reinforce the importance of them being role models and stewards of your organization’s reputation.

If our common-sensed approach appeals to you, please contact us for more information and pricing.
