Respect at Work
|Posted on 22 June, 2020 at 0:00|
Last Friday I delivered my first training session in over 2 months - I had my COVID safety plan, I was excited, just a little nervous and truely grateful to be back doing what I love.
Friday night I was happy but exhausted! 4 hours face to face with a room of appropriately distanced participants had been exhilarating but tough.. interactions are surprisingly noisy and tiring when you're out of practice.
Friday reassured me that I had made the right decision by not adapting my content to on-line training. Respect at Work staff and manager sessions rely on face to face interactions and the flexibility of being able to adapt the content to the requirements of the participants. I have never delivered 2 identical sessions even when in the same workplace, my content resonates differently as particpants explore what respect means to them and their team. This is how I like to deliver and this seems to be what makes Respect at Work sessions successful.
At the beginning of restrictions and amongst the fear and angst I was afraid that business' would rate investing dollars on staff relationships and workplace cultures at the bottom of their list of priorities. Thankfully for some this is not true.
Investing in your people and your culture is more important now than ever before.
Let me know if Respect at Work can help at your workplace.
