Leaders and managers play a vital role in setting the tone and expectations of behaviour in any workplace. This session gives leaders the space to reflect on their roles in minimising inappropriate behaviour, to recognise the practical impact of harassment and bullying, and to develop strategies.

Developed following our recent discussions with members and others in the industry, and delivered by Challenge Consultancy, this new training will support you to lead a respectful working culture, to identify and address issues, to have clear procedures in place and to build your confidence in embedding a respectful working culture for all.
