Do your staff know that they matter? 60 minutes | 1 CPD Point | For Leaders, Supervisors, Managers

This workshop will explore the positive impacts on an organisation when staff are engaged, have purpose, and know that they matter. Participants will learn tools to put into practice to make sure their staff have vision, goals, and purpose in the workplace.

Upwards Delegation 30 minutes | 0.5 CPD Points | For Leaders, Supervisors, Managers

Sounds a little twisted, right? How does delegation occur ‘upwards’? The unfortunate reality for many senior practitioners is that it is happening daily and creating considerable stress, additional workload, and, ultimately, a workforce dependant on senior staff with junior staff not adequately developing. Upwards Delegation is a real problem in the practise of law and this program will provide senior practitioners and leaders with tips and techniques to ensure their staff do not ‘delegate’ problems and work to them. We will explore how upwards delegation happens with real examples and offer ways to encourage solutions-based thinking to your team members.

This workshop will help you run a health check on your organisation, and provide you with practical tools to help improve the overall wellness of the culture within the workplace.
