Workshop: Violence at Work! A Practical Approach to Dealing With Workplace Violence


Once upon a time it was safe to go to work. Maybe that was just a fairy tale because times have certainly changed.  Increased violence has become part of our everyday life be it at home or at work.  We read about it daily in the newspaper and are bombarded with it from the television and radio.


Violence at Work!  explores workplace conflict in its many forms. Drawing on his many years of experience working in hazardous clinical settings and situations as a nurse, Rae A. Stonehouse RN has developed a program that is suitable for a wide range of participants.


Workshop: Assert Yourself!


Effective communication allows us to build healthy relationships in our private lives and healthy partnerships in our business lives.  Ineffective interactions lead to frustration, dysfunctional personal relationships and stagnant organizations.


Assert Yourself! is a training program that teaches you how to confront problematic behavior in yourself and others. Skill development in the areas of effective listening, non-verbal communicating and interpersonal communication help to increase one's level of self-confidence and hence assertiveness.


Workshop: Crisis! What Crisis?


Crisis results from the stress and tension in a person's life. All too often lately we hear stories of how crises have gotten out of control.  The term "going postal" has become part of our everyday language.

As employers, supervisors, and health care workers we are frequently involved in other people's crises. We are often thrust into the position of having to resolve the crisis.


Crisis! What Crisis? explores the nature of crisis and offers proven techniques to resolve crises.


Seminar/Workshop: Communication@Work!


This entertaining & interactive presentation explores healthy and effective communication techniques for getting along in the workplace.


"The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem." ---Theodore Rubin
