130346| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Key Strategies for Dealing with Change|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview:
We grow up with Fear. As adults, we have become accustomed to the feelings of anxiety, stress, and worry as part of our life in the churn of the business day.CHANGE is the boogey man that triggers these feelings in spades.

Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph. D., a neuroanatomist at Harvard, writes of her experience when she had a stroke in her Left Brain and survived 4 hours of vivid consciousness without fear. She knew she was in physical danger, but she felt no fear. After learning this, I have trained 165 people how to switch brains so that fear disappears. By combining this experience with a Peak Performance State, which my trainers and I have been teaching in seminars in 15 countries for the last 31 years, the novice can control their emotions so that joy, pleasure, contentment are available at a moment's notice. These two largely unknown exercises ready the participant for change in any manner. Everyone's performance improves once fear is erased.

Why should you Attend: If you feel a clutch in your abdomen when you are faced with change, then this presentation will change that spasm. Since change is speeding up, you will face these "clutches" more and more often. You can stop these now. It is time to learn emotion-control strategies to shift your internal thermostat from FEAR to Excitement and CURIOSITY. First, we will explore the different attributes of your two brains then practice erasing fear. Once the fear is no longer part of your emotional experience, nor manifest in your behavior, the pleasant and even exhilarating facets of change will dominate your reality. You will then be in an optimum state of mind to deal with the unexpected events of change. After practicing the "Erase Fear" technique we will demonstrate and work with each of you to create a "State of Excellence". This is a similar exercise to the Olympic athletes preparatory mind-set. These two strategies will change your mind so that you are ready for CHANGE.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • The Amazing Story of the Left Brain Stroke
  • How to Cancel Fear in 90 Seconds
  • Practice so that this becomes easy, almost automatic
  • State of Excellence
  • Discussion & Questions


Who Will Benefit:

  • Anyone who's ever made a mistake at work

130344| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Comparison between USA and Canadian Systems|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

 

Overview:
For many employers in the US, Canada offers an attractive market for business expansion. Culturally and economically close to our neighbours, Canada shares a strong western economy.

Businesses need to be aware of the risks when considering expansion across the border. Workplace legislation and the legal policies are significantly different from those in the United States. Notably the Workers Compensation system has some unique and costly elements.

No employer wants to see an accident or injury in their workplace. Yet, despite even the most robust health, safety and preventative measures, accidents can happen. When they do, employers in Canada need to be prepared to negotiate the complex maze of their local Workers Compensation Board.

Some Background to the Canadian Workers Compensation System
The roots of the Canadian Workers Compensation System took hold more than a hundred years ago; cultivated in the rich and hazardous landscape of a booming industrial and economic revolution. In 1910, Chief Justice of Ontario, Sir William Meredith, was asked to head a Royal Commission studying Workers Compensation systems throughout the world.

In his Royal Commission report, Meredith said that the true aim of compensation law was to provide for both the injured worker and their dependents. He identified five basic principles for a compassionate system: no-fault compensation, security of benefits, collective liability, exclusive jurisdiction and administration by independent boards. The most significant of these was the idea of "no-fault compensation."This means the workers give up their right to sue their employers in exchange for no-fault income security in the event of a workplace injury. Employers pay for the system in return for protection against liability.

The Canadian Workers Compensation System Today
The system in Canada today is still built on the founding Meredith Principles. It is a quasi-government run system, 100% employer funded and provincially administered through individual boards. In each Province these Boards operate under different names and have different maximum benefit levels, legislative provisions, and penalty programs.

If not managed carefully the cost of Workers Compensation penalties can have a significant and serious financial impact on a companys bottom line. This often takes employers by surprise at the end of the year when they receive a large bill stating due and payable in 30 days. The penalties are sometimes so heavy they wipe out entire profit margins.

To navigate rough (and potentially damaging) legislative waters, it is important for businesses to chart the cause of penalties and unique differences in each relevant Province and map out the best course to manage risk.

Why should you Attend: This session will provide a strong overview of Workers Compensation in Canada compared to the US system. Tools and techniques to contain, and reduce the overall WC expense will be discussed

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Workers Compensation Legislative differences
  • The Experience Rating Program
  • The Role of Consultants in Canada
  • How well managed Return to Work Programs help
  • The total cost of risk


Who Will Benefit:

  • Human Resources
  • Risk Managers / Directors

130343| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Drafting Employee Handbooks and Company Policies|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: Broken promises lead to breach of contract claims. Employers use handbooks to show that they have provided valuable information to their employees and that they have been clear in the rules that employees must follow. They are invaluable tools if used correctly. But is your handbook giving employees a legal contract claims they might not otherwise have? How can you avoid this situation?

Why should you Attend: If written properly, handbooks are a valuable tool in the workplace. Governmental agencies, courts and juries look to handbooks to determine your policies and whether you have been fair to your employees.

Handbooks written poorly will inevitably doom you. Poorly written handbooks cause confusion, inconsistency in the workplace, and increased litigation. As the author of a handbook or policy, any ambiguities will be construed against the employer which may nullify your disclaimers. This webinar will teach you to write your handbooks and policies to avoid contractual obligations but at the same time accomplish your purpose of informing employees of your expectations.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • What is "at will" employment?
  • How a poorly drafted handbook or policy can erode the "at will" status of your employees
  • How to protect your company from the top mistakes that employers make in drafting employee handbooks
  • How to prevent claims of implied contract
  • How to avoid using language that can give rise to claims of breach of implied contract
  • What are the essential disclaimers your employee handbook should contain
  • What are the essential policies that your handbook should contain? What policies should a company have but is not appropriate for a handbook?
  • What are the essential policies that your employee handbook should contain
  • How to have a well drafted anti-harassment policy that will protect you from future liability
  • Why terms like probationary period and introductory period can be problematic
  • How to write a progressive discipline policy that meets your needs but avoiding language that may make these policies a contract
  • Training your supervisors not to say things contrary to your disclaimers in your handbooks


Who Will Benefit:

  • Human Resource Managers
  • Company Owners

130342| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Developing an Effective Onboarding Program|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview:
Why is proper onboarding so important? Your organization, and the applicants who want you to hire them, invest a great deal of time and resources in the hiring process.

During the selection stage, the hiring manager will make the decision to extend an offer of employment with the assumption that the applicant will fit in and be an effective performer who is satisfied in the position and committed to your organization. The applicant accepts a job based on the same assumption.It follows, then, that onboarding is an important subsequent step in solidifying those decisions. It increases the likelihood of achieving the organization's expected outcomes, i.e.,effective job performance, job satisfaction, and commitment to your organization.

An effective employee handbook outlines the benefits and responsibilities of the employment relationship. The purpose of the handbook is much more complex and powerful than employers may realize. A solid onboarding program assists organizations in attracting and retaining top talent, engaging employees early on, boosts business growth, builds trust and alignment, forges connections with employees, encourages open communication, and decreases turnover.

Sounds easy to achieve, right? The reality is successfully onboarding new hires for long-term happiness and productivity can be extremely challenging. A successful new hire orientation process requires planning, execution, and follow-up of learning experiences with the new employee from the first contact. And the process doesn't end there.Ongoing interaction with the new employee is essential.

Organizations could also experience additional challenges when developing an effective onboarding program. These challenges include preparation costs to the inability to personalize training and orientation. Don't short-change your new hires, and your organization, by not taking the time to develop a successful onboarding program in order to effectively welcome new hires onboard.

Why should you Attend: Employee orientation is the process of introducing employees to their new jobs and work environments. Orientation provides an opportunity for new employees to become acclimated to their new company, department, colleagues and work expectations. Research has supported the idea that effective onboarding can have a dramatic effect on job performance and satisfaction, organizational commitment, and retention. Recent evidence also suggests that a poor organizational socialization process can result in a new hire's emotional exhaustion and job burnout.

It is important to make sure the employment relationship starts off on the right foot, since the first experiences of a new employee in your organization are critical.

If executed correctly, a successful onboarding program will maximize your new employees' understanding of their specific roles and responsibilities, boost their confidence, and help them to become active and welcome participants in your organization and its unique culture. This webinar will outline the steps to developing an effective employee orientation program that will lay the foundation for new employees' entire careers.

More than 70 percent of these assaults were in healthcare and social service settings. Health care and social service workers are almost four times as likely to be injured as a result of violence than the average private sector worker. Nearly 2 million Americans report that they have been the victims of violence at work, and homicide is the most common cause of workplace fatalities for women. While not all violence is routed in mental illness, many incidences of violence can be traced to mental illness. Engaging in stereotypes that those who have a mental illness are prone to violence can land you in a nasty lawsuit.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Identifying the most common Mental Illnesses and their Symptoms
  • When is Mental Illness a Disability Under the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Accommodating the Mentally Ill Under the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Mental Illness under the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • When you can Demand an Employee to Undergo a Mental Health Assessment
  • Dealing with Performance and Disciplinary Issues that may be caused by Mental Illness
  • Most Common Signs of those with Mental Illness who may become Violent
  • Your Duty to Provide a Safe Working Environment under the Occupational Safety and Health Act


Who Will Benefit:

  • Company Owners
  • Human Resource Professionals
  • Benefits Specialists
  • Risk Managers

130339| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Giving and Receiving Feedback|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview:
Not everyone is skilled at giving feedback, and it can be equally difficult to receive constructive criticism as well. Giving and receiving feedback is missing from workplaces and so employees are leaving. Just say 'thank you' and 'please' more and we should be good to go. No. No? No.

Feedback can reinforce existing strengths, keep goal directed behavior on course, clarify the effects of behavior, and increase recipients' abilities to detect and remedy errors on their own. Your employees want to know when they are doing good, great and need development. Learn to give it with dignity and integrity, respectfully and honestly. Frequent and effective feedback increases productivity and team harmony.

Receiving feedback also takes special skills especially when it is something you don't want to hear, and not least because not everyone is skilled at giving feedback. In order to hear feedback, you need to listen to it. Don't think about what you're going to say in reply, just listen. Pay attention to non-verbal communication as well and listen to what your colleague is not saying, as well as what they are saying. Body language accounts for 55% of our communication.

When receiving feedback question, reflect and clarify to ensure that you have fully understood all the nuances of what the other person is saying and avoid misunderstandings. Be aware of your emotions and also be able to manage them so that even if the feedback causes an emotional response, you can control it. Giving and receiving feedback, simple, yes, difficult, even more so!

Feedback is continual. Whether explicit through oral or written language, or implicit in gestures or tone of voice, feedback conveys information about behaviours and offers an evaluation of the quality of those behaviours.

Why should you Attend: This course will help you introduce feedback into your company.

A free perk to every employee in your company is feedback, positive, constructive feedback. Millennials in particular are leaving companies because they don't feel appreciated and no one has told them recently that they are doing a fine job. If you don't get feedback at work, you won't know how to give feedback when it is your turn to complement, show appreciation or discuss a sensitive topic. Giving and receiving feedback can be learned.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Examine the Importance of Feedback in the Workplace
  • Get six Tips on how to Receive Feedback and Six Tips on how to give Feedback
  • Learn Useful Phrases for Giving Feedback
  • Learn How to give your Boss Feedback


Who Will Benefit:

  • Anyone who Trains Employees on Soft Skills or is Responsible for Implementing change in their Organization
  • Everyone

130338| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Webinar on Empowerment: The DNA of Sustainable Change Management|

The TrainHR Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview:
HR.com and other HR platforms including Gallup state that nearly 89% of your current human capital assets are open to another job. The reasons for this are many but one of the primary reasons is that today's human capital feel unvalued by their employers. They feel they are treated as a number rather than as an individual. This webinar looks at the reasons for this and how through the TLS Continuum Empowerment model change that focus. With the changed focus will come increased engagement, better retention and empowered organizational change.

Why should you Attend: Open a paper or open the pages of your favorite HR journal and there is bound to be at least one article regarding the lack of engagement on the part of your human capital assets or suggesting strategies to engage the same employees.

This webinar presents the argument that if we change our focus to allow the human capital assets to own the processes they are involved in rather than management, we will increase the levels of engagement within your organization. With that increased engagement will come the creation of empowerment to make the necessary changes to bring about lasting organizational change.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Definition of Empowerment
  • The TLS Continuum Empowerment Model
  • Characteristics of Management Empowerment
  • Characteristics of Cross-Functional Team Empowerment
  • Characteristics of Individual Empowerment
  • Benefit of Employee Ownership of Processes


Who Will Benefit:

  • C-Level Executives
  • Managers
  • Supervisors
  • Stakeholders
  • Front-Line Employees

130319| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Port Talbot - February 2019|

AACP Foundation Acupuncture Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer you a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow you to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

Tailor-made for Physiotherapists, the course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture – grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

You will be encouraged to critically evaluate your own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide you with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific ‘placebo’ effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:

- have HCPC physiotherapy registration

- have CSP membership

- be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts

- give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant).

- attend all 6 days of the course

- be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration (see AACP website for safety guidelines).

You will also benefit from one year FREE membership with the AACP.

Previous delegates have said:

I found the course really eye opening and refreshing to be taught such a skill and encouraged to actually make my own judgements about it based on a variety of sources instead of told why I should believe what someone else is saying.

I think the course itself is a credit to the AACP as an organisation and I am really glad I had the opportunity to benefit from the tutors personal experience and viewpoint as a teacher. I feel really quite lucky!

130311| University of Sheffield| Automated Security Testing During Software Development|

A one-day course on security testing during software development.

Date: 13 September 2018
Cost: £450

Software security vulnerabilities are a serious threat to software vendors and their customers: they can result in both monetary loss and loss of reputation. Thus, implementing a rigid secure software development life-cycle (SDLC) is a competitive advantage for a software vendor. Security testing is an important part of any SDLC. Moreover, it is commonly accepted that security testing should be applied as early as possible in software development.

In this one day continuous professional development (CDP) training, the participants will learn different security testing approaches (e.g., SAST, DAST), their specific strengths and weaknesses, how to evaluate tools and how to select the best “blend” of tools for their own software development. Moreover, the participants will learn how these tools can be integrated into various software development methods (ranging from traditional waterfall-like processes to agile processes supporting continues delivery).

The training is structured into a series of short lectures, discussion for exchanging own experiences, and practical exercises.
