126365| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| How to Effectively Coach|

This Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview: Coaching is one of the most effective ways to develop people. It creates an environment where people know how much you care and are willing to do to help them achieve greatness. It is not about the coach, it is all about the coaches. One of the real joys is both individuals will derive benefits from the experience.

The unique modality of coaching is an opportunity to reward striving employees, encourage greater achievement and develop people beyond their own self-limiting beliefs. The most successful individuals, athletes, actors, executives and students all have derived benefit from being coached. The only people who don't need a coach are those who choose to be mediocre.

There is both art and science in the application of coaching. The coach has to work at becoming a highly competent coach. It is not something that should be approached casually or be taken for granted. It is hard work and requires training and skill development.

The rewards of effective coaching are greatest for the individual, and for the coach. A company that values its people will grow stronger, make more profits and develop their company into a great place to work when coaching is an integral part of the culture.

Why should you Attend: Whatever your chosen leadership style, it is in your best interest to incorporate coaching with your direct reports. Multiple surveys of employees have validated the biggest desired need of people is to feel they are included and valuable. There is nothing more powerful than a coaching relationship to build that type of relationship.

You don't need a title to be a coach. The most effective employees know how to coach themselves and others both up and down the proverbial "chain of command." That's right, if you are smart, you will learn how to coach your boss.

Paul Hersey, the originator of Situational Leadership, believed that leadership is simply "influence" and there is a lot of truth in that concept. The beauty of coaching is it involves influence that is desired by both parties. This is clearly not discipline, remedial counseling or behavior modification. Coaching is a very positive, uplifting and progressive endeavor, it can produce remarkable results.

126363| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Stay Interviews: A Powerful and Low-Cost Employee Engagement and Retention Tool|

This Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview: The best way to find out what your employees want and how to retain them is to ask them. Ask questions to gauge how you're meeting your employee's expectations. Not just "How's it going?", but specific questions to get specific answers. Explore why these people remain with your company. Why did they join the organization? How well are their objectives or dreams being fulfilled? Which aspects of their work do they enjoy the most? Which do they least enjoy? Are they receiving sufficient opportunities for growth and development? What would influence them to look elsewhere?

The stay interview is a one-on-one interview between a manager and a valued employee. Its aim, quite simply, is to learn what makes employees want to keep working for you. Likewise,it's designed to elicit what might motivate them to leave. In an effective 30-minute stay interview, managers ask standard, structured questions in a casual and conversational manner. It's not a performance discussion but rather a "let me get to know you and your goals" discussion.

The stay interview is an opportunity to build trust with employees and a chance to assess the degree of employee satisfaction and engagement that exists in a department or company. Stay interviews are preferable to employee satisfaction surveys because they:

  • Provide a two-way conversation and a chance to ask questions
  • Get more in-depth understanding of that employee's current motivation
  • Offer managers the opportunity to quickly reinforce the positives and deal with the employee's concerns


Why should you Attend: A recent Harvard Business Review article 'How to Keep Your Top Talent' warns that 25% of your top talent plans to jump ship in the next year. The results for engagement and effort are even more alarming, since about a third of employees surveyed admit to phoning it in at work. That's bad news if you believe that staying competitive relies on the passion, drive and creative energy of talented people.

Many firms use exit interviews to find out why employees are leaving their jobs. Unfortunately, asking an employee on their last day "why are you leaving?" doesn't provide useful information in time to prevent the turnover. A superior approach is a "stay interview" because it occurs before there is any hint that an employee is about to exit the firm. A stay interview helps managers understand why employees stay so that those important factors can be reinforced. They also signal frustrations that can be nipped in the bud before they drive the employee to start looking elsewhere.

The Benefits of Stay Interviews:

  • They stimulate the employee: Most employees are excited simply by the fact that the organization is concerned about their future and that their manager took the time to consult with them.
  • They're personalized: Unlike engagement surveys and many other retention tools that are focused on what excites a large number of employees, this approach is customized to a single identifiable individual and their wants.
  • They're limited to key employees:By having a "stay" discussion exclusively with your key employees who are at risk of leaving, you focus the manager's effort and you minimize the overall time that the manager must devote to retention.
  • They include actions: Unlike exit interviews, which only identify problems, stay interviews also encourage the parties to identify actions that can improve the employee experience and actions that can help eliminate any major turnover triggers.
  • They are inexpensive: These informal interviews don't require a budget. In most cases, a half to an hour of a manager and an employee's time are the only major cost factors.Adding stay interviews to your engagement and strategies can help your organization retain critical employees.It's the single best tool you can give managers.


Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Identify five key factors that impact an employee's desire to stay or leave
  • Recognize four possible "triggers" that cause the employee to consider leaving
  • Learn how to ask probing questions and conduct effective, efficient stay interviews
  • Survey a list of eight retention actions to increase employee's loyalty and commitment
  • Review a sample of stay interview questions and develop your own customized list to ask
  • Discover how to develop stay plans for your employees and manage accountability
  • Develop a simple "how-to-toolkit" that includes who to select,how and when to approach,interview formant and how to handle possible resistance

126357| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Conducting HR Audits: Identifying and Managing Key Human Capital Issues|

This Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

 

Overview:
HR audits are designed to help your organization focus its attention on its human resource management practices, policies, procedures, processes, and outcomes by providing you with a structured and systematic series of questions about key compliance, risk management, internal auditing, and human resource management issues. As an auditing process, HR audits are designed to help your organization identify potential and actual problem areas, help assess the effectiveness of HR management activities, help assess weaknesses in HR internal control processes, and help assess human capital strategic and compliance related risks. HR audits then typically provide suggestions for corrective action.

Importantly, HR audits consider human capital related risks and opportunities from an enterprise risk management (ERM) perspective. That is, HR audits take a holistic approach in assessing human capital risks and attempts to indicate the interrelationships and interactions between HR and other management and organizational issues.

Recognizing that no two employers are alike and that the practices, policies, and processes that may be appropriate and effective for multinational corporations may be inappropriate for small and medium size companies or non-profits, the HR audit is designed to help develop and tailor employment practices, policies, procedures, and processes to meet its specific needs. Thus your HR audit should first provide your organization with the "right" questions to ask about various employment practices issues; then help you determine the optimal answer for your organization.

Thus while HR audits alone will not guarantee that your workplace will be selected as a "best place to work" or be free from all legal challenges, they will serve as a guide through the maze of human resource management best practices and employment and labor laws and regulations. HR audits will further enhance the value of your organization's human capital, enhance your organization's competitiveness, and reduce your organization's exposure to employment practices liabilities.

Why should you Attend: In the global economy, human capital has become for many organizations the single most important determinant of competitiveness, productivity, sustainability, and profitability. Increasingly, an organization's human capital is the source of innovation and a driver of business success.

Second, a confluence of economic, political, and social factors, including corporate scandals, the failure of the financial industry to adequately assess risks, and increasing stockholder initiatives, have resulted in increased statutory and regulatory requirements, a call for greater transparency, and increased internal and external audit activity.

Third, governmental agencies have become more active - some would argue more aggressive - and have committed more resources to conducting assessments of employment policies and practices. Importantly, the EEOC, the OFCCP, U.S. DOL, the NLRB, and ICE have advised employers that they consider self assessments and audits a "best practice."

How effectively is your organization managing its human capital? Is your human capital helping you achieve organizational objectives? Are your employment practices creating material risks and liabilities? This session discusses the development and use of HR Audits in answering these questions and addressing critical risk management and due diligence issues.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • How effective is your organization's human resource management?
  • Is your human capital helping you achieve organizational objectives?
  • Are your employment practices creating material risks and liabilities?
  • What are the key organizational issues that should be audited?
  • What HR audit tools should be used in conducting the audit


Who Will Benefit:

  • HR Professionals
  • Risk Managers
  • Internal Auditors
  • In-house Counsel
  • CFOs
  • CEOs
  • Management Consultants
  • Other individuals who want to learn how to use develop and implement employee handbooks

126356| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Business Writing for Financial Professionals|

This Course is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.

Overview:
Financial professionals realize that demonstrating mastery is not limited to preparing and presenting meeting briefings and firing off summary emails on business issues. Writing proficiency emerges from their ability to craft operational and financial inquiries, fiscal analyses, revenue forecasts, internal justifications, appropriation requests, client proposals, business cases, and a whole host of other financial documents depending on their organizational responsibilities. Their formal training in these skills has been limited to academic contexts, and their company may not necessarily use standardized methods for composing these diverse documents. Thus, specialized training in financial business writing ensures that financial professionals write documents which express their organizational objectives and business purposes.

Poor writing causes corporations to spend billions of dollars annually on remedial training. This problem is especially significant as the flattening of the global marketplace has increasingly burdened financial professionals to write high-profile, complex documents for diverse audiences on the fly. They often perform this essential work in diverse locations, such as commuter trains, hotel lobbies, and conference rooms; during fast-paced, noisy business meetings, and under exceedingly tight time pressures. While many financial professionals benefit from using templates when developing major documents, circumstances often demand they think on their feet by either adapting the template to the situation or abandoning it for an alternative method.

Financial business writers need a toolbox of memorable and practical strategies and techniques that will guide them through the writing process. This webinar includes the key principles of focused, high-impact writing. Working through the phases of revising (ideas), editing (expression), and proofreading (overlooked errors), this session looks at the rewriting process from levels:

  • The document level of purposefulness
  • The paragraph level of emphasis, unity, coherence, and visual appeal
  • The sentence level of impact, clarity, conciseness, consistency, and correctness
  • The word level of diction. This systematic, top-down approach will prove invaluable when applying the webinar principles to their unique business-writing situations


Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Four levels of quality controlling finance-related messages
  • Using a structure that reinforces the purpose
  • Emphasizing key points through solid paragraphing
  • Employing formatting devices to guide readers through complex data
  • Highlighting the relevance of data through transitions
  • Editing sentences for clarity through active voice
  • Applying the principles of conciseness to get to the point
  • Maintaining a consistent message through parallel structure
  • Remedying the most prevalent sentence errors that compromise the quality of language


Training Objectives:

  • Focus the audience on the purpose of the message
  • Determine the appropriate level of content
  • Organize data to focus the reader
  • Heighten the importance of facts to address the reader's concerns


Who Will Benefit:

  • Accounting Professionals
  • Banking Managers
  • Business Forecasters
  • Economic Advisor
  • Equity Researchers
  • Financial Planners
  • Insurance Professionals
  • Investment Consultants
  • Risk Analysts
  • Tax Specialists

126344| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Cornwall - April 2018|

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!
