That is what you told us you need!

A recent Wynford survey revealed that it is the #1 critical area that organizations have identified for employee development.

Since learning is one of the major drivers for engaging employees, NOW is the time to provide training that will pay off when labour market pressures increase again.

The Wynford Group is Pleased to Present:



Develops skills to build and support a work environment which demonstrates respect, dignity, equity and safety for all employees. As a participant you will learn to:

  • Assess your organization or work team in terms of "workplace climate".
  • Understand the legal aspects and implications of harassment, discrimination, and other equity issues.
  • "Walk" in another person's shoes (understand their perspective).
  • Understand how stereotypes, myths and prejudgments filter our new information and experiences.
  • Identify and address the barriers to respectful communication.
  • Develop practical tools for displacing disrespectful habits and behaviors.
  • Develop organizational expectations and programs to promote respect at work.
  • Develop practical strategies to sustain a respectful workplace for all employees.


The Wynford Group's approach to skill development is a participative one; therefore our training formats focus on involving participants directly in the learning process through:

  • SKILL ASSESSMENT to identify current skill levels using a broad suite of assessment tools.
  • EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING SITUATIONS that involve participants in active learning.
  • Reinforcement of learning through SKILL PRACTICE relevant to real life situations and FOLLOW-UP activities.
