#1 - Creating the “New Norm”
        Taking your workplace to the next level

Learning Objectives

Why are some people still allowed to get away with inappropriate behaviours at work? Most employees have had some education about bullying and harassment, or what we often call “respectful workplace” training. Yet the questions still need exploring: Why can one person poison an entire workplace? Why are employees afraid to speak up, even after all the policies and pleading from management to speak up? Why do managers not deal with “bad performers” or allow reckless behaviour from “star performers”? Why does our need to “fit in” get in the way of common sense discussions about good and bad behaviour?

 

To get to the New Norm, we have to move past the Old Norm, where people got away with inappropriate behaviour and others were afraid to speak up, or they just didn’t bother because they knew from past experience that nothing would change.

 

In the process of finding ways to go from the Old Norm to the New Norm, Stephen wrote a new book titled, The New Norm, helping managers and employees make that all important shift.

 

Using cases from his book, as well as even more recent cases, Stephen helps employees and/or managers learn from the mistakes of others. Stephen will help people understand that making the shift is done one employee, one supervisor, one team and one workplace at a time. But one workshop or one book won’t do it all. People at your workplace need to decide how and when they want to get to your own “New Norm.”

Determining what are the old norms in your workplace

Looking at better, New Norms, that will

improve workplace behaviours

Deciding what needs to happen to get away from

the undesirable Old Norms and move to

the more desirable New Norms

Who Benefits?

Anyone at any level of your workplace. The session can be geared towards just workplace leaders, or non-supervisory employees, or a combination of all employees. Everyone at work has the responsibility to act appropriately at work. But when some people aren’t acting responsibly, then we have to figure out how to change certain behaviours. Every employee is part of the equation, but added to that is the responsibility of workplace leaders to be good role models and to correct the behaviour of others. All employees will benefit from an open and honest exchange of what’s good at work, what’s not so good (or dare we say “bad”) and what has to happen to bring about real change. They used to say “talk is cheap”, but in fact when people say the wrong things, depending on their severity, talk can be very expensive due to unproductive investigations, legal fees or hiring new people when others leave. This session should bring about benefits when people are willing to move from the Old Norm to the New Norm.

 

EVERY training session is customized and there are no boring lectures. Stephen brings humour to even the most serious issues with complete audience engagement using auto-response technology, allowing for open, honest, and anonymous responses. The best part is that people will remember the stories and message Stephen delivers…well after your session is over.
