Cross Cultural Understanding

Cultural diversity can present challenges. Many businesses based in Ireland require managers to supervise multi-cultural teams, maybe even virtual teams in a number of locations with team members from different cultures. Managers need to improve their cross cultural understanding to manage more effectively.

Team members in culturally diverse teams need to have an understanding of other cultures to allow the team perform at the highest levels.

Businesses are also trading globally and need to negotiate Read More

Encouraging Ethical Behaviour

The ethical tone of an organisation is set by the people who manage and supervise. This training is designed to help them do this in a way that encourages others to engage in ethical behaviour.

Managers and supervisors learn about the problems that occur in organisations and the power they have to prevent them. We look at what influences personal decision making and the group dynamics that can lead to unethical conduct.

Managers learn simple tools to help them increase the likelihood of ethical behaviour. They also learn about common management practices that may unwittingly encourage un-ethical behaviour and how they can avoid these traps.  Managers are more sensitized to their own actions and their impact on others.

Most people strive to do the right thing and therefore find this training both interesting and practical. Training can be tailored to your organisation’s specific situation.

Contact us today to discuss your needs and how this training could inspire your managers to be better leaders and encourage ethical behaviour in all around them.

Whistle Blowing Policy (Protected Disclosures)

Good employers realise that it is better to uncover problems early and fix them before they become a disaster.  A 2016 survey found that most employers expressed support of whistle blowers but that most workplaces lacked awareness of the requirements of the Protected Disclosures Act commonly referred to as whistle blower protection. And the recent EU Directive will require companies of more than 50 employees to have policies and processes for the reporting and investigation of concerns and to ensure there is no retaliation towards any worker for raising a concern.

Do you have an fit-for-purpose whistle blowing policy in your organisation?  Do your employees know where to go with disclosures?  Do they understand their options?  Do managers in your organisation know how to act on receipt of reports?  Do people in your workplace understand that there must be no retaliation against whistle blowers or anyone connected to them?

We offer both advice & training and can help you introduce whistle blowing policies and processes that are effective and manageable, that fit your company culture and that allow you to deal effectively with potential problems before they become disasters.
