    About the Presentations 


    Session One –    Is It Humor or Harassment?


    “Humor” is important for stress relief, morale and creativity. Yet “humor” also results in harassment, defamation or other legal actions. It can create personal liability. It can cost you your job. When does a joke, a cartoon, banter or teasing go over the line? Do you have to sanitize? Must we be “politically correct” – and what "duty of care" do managers have to manage all the sensitivities of a growing racial, sexual, ethnic and religiously diverse workforce? This informative program addresses the humor issue with practicality and solid legal principles.


    Learn About:

               How humor started as a medical concept

               Changing humor

               Fun versus the law

               Personal liability of partners, owners and key managers:  the "undefendables"

               Harassment, bullying "making fun of others"

               Duty of care for the workplace

               Where are the lines between humor and harassment?

               Emails and other electronic problems

               When teasing leads to violence

               You do not have to sanitize; there is a great deal of OK humor

               Guidelines for avoiding liability



    Session Two – Accountable Openness - Driving Trust and Productivity in Your Culture.


    Honest, direct conversations are the exception rather than the norm in corporate environments.

    In this interactive session you’ll explore the pervasive inefficiency of withholding and learn how to start creating a culture of Openness in your workplace.


               Gain awareness of your own defensive behaviors and how they limit openness in the workplace

    o             Understand the 7 levels of openness.

               Learn to identify the common ways we all communicate unaccountably

    o             Gain an experience of increased openness

               Identify strategies to increase openness and accountability in the workplace.
