Preparing Yourself and Your Staff for the Busy Tourism Season
This month we are offering two training sessions that will assist you as a manager, supervisor or front line employee in increasing your Confidence and Emotional Intelligence.
In June we will be offering a new session on Psychological Health and Safety in Your Workplace.
This is the perfect time to prepare yourself and your staff to deal with many of the issues you will face over the next busy months.

Courage, Confidence & Resilience

Making the decision to do anything takes the courage to make that initial decision and seeing past the fear, and triggering the initial action. Confidence is what we get when we repeat the action over and over, gaining competence until we achieve mastery. And resilience  is what lets us recover and get over minor setbacks, big obstacles and event traumatic experiences that we encounter along the way.
Being our best takes Courage, Confidence and Resilience.

Psychological Health and Safety in Your Workplace
Accusations of harassment and toxic work environments can result in thousands of dollars in legal fees, and harm a company's reputation. Employers have a duty of care to their employees, inherent in the employment contract, which requires them to protect employee mental health. With mental health issues amounting to $50 billion a year, and workplace stress being the primary cause of mental illness, Canadian employers can protect themselves and their employees by using the Canadian Psychological Health and Safety Standard.
In this session, you will develop a plan to protect your organization and care for employees who deal with mental health issues - one in five Canadians. You will assess 13 psychosocial factors that lead to stress, make plans to enhance each factor, and explore strategies for mental health reasonable accommodations.
