#MeToo Movement – Sexual harassment & the workplace
Presenting Speaker: Jenifer Pinkham, Schlossberg, LLC
Seminar Description

The #MeToo movement, a campaign against sexual harassment and assault, has been making headlines across the country since late last year. Women from all walks of life are taking to social media to stand against those who have wronged them with unwelcome sexual advances on the job.

As we become more sensitive to the topic of sexual harassment, are employers more at risk of being called to task for something that happens in the workplace or between co-workers? The consensus seems to be yes.

Our March R&G Academy seminar, desgined for HR professionals and business owners, will focus on Employer Liability pertaining to sexual harassment both inside and outside the workplace. Join Attorney Jenifer Pinkham, for a discussion on how harassment complaints should be handled – from reporting to investigation to remedial action.

Creating a Culture of Accountability
Presenting Speaker: Eric Warner, Praxis Growth Advisors
Seminar Description

Do you sometimes feel like the only way to get what you need done is to either do it yourself or micromanage someone else to do it right? Are you wondering why your team is not accountable to the results that are necessary to drive success in your organization? Or simply, you’re asking what is accountability? And, what’s getting in the way? How can I implement a culture of Accountability?

In this workshop we will help you create a path to accountability. We will focus on the following topics:

  • Linking the 4S’s of good management – Strategy, Structure, Staff and Skills  to your goals
  • Creating clarity for yourself and your direct reports around goals (yours and theirs), the path to achieve those goals (yours and theirs), and the consequences triggered by failing to stick to the path.
  • Accountability Myths
  • Separating who you are from what you do to help people grow beyond their comfort zones
