Workforce Behaviors/Workforce Challenges – “How to keep your job”

The learning objective of this course is to help participants learn how to collaborate with others.  By understanding personality styles, diversity, workplace ethics and managing conflict will help teams work together instead of against each other and can make a huge difference in how successful a company is. Also, this course will focus on common workforce challenges relating to stress management, handling change and time management.  Each of these challenges is common in most teams on an almost continual basis. Participants will increase their ability to make the most out of these challenges so they become a benefit rather than a negative.
