Managing The Troublesome And Counterproductive Employee Morning Online Seminar

Navigating complex employee challenges is a critical aspect of any organisation. It can be daunting to confront situations such as dealing with high-conflict personalities, including those with toxic, narcissistic, or psychopathic tendencies.

Indirect forms of discrimination such as passive racism, if unchecked, can be damaging to both individuals and diversity initiatives. Furthermore, issues like sexual harassment, bullying, and workplace violence can have severe impact on the well-being of employees and tarnish an organisation’s brand.

Engaging the disengaged, reigniting the unmotivated, and overcoming resistance to change management programmes can seem like a tall order. How can you turn these challenging scenarios into positive outcomes?

This seminar is designed to equip HR professionals and line managers with the insights, tools, and innovative strategies to effectively manage these complexities.
