Building Confidence for Women
Women are the backbone of our trade union, standing up for colleagues in local workplaces as reps and managing complex busy lives. However, often women don’t feel they have confidence to stand up for themselves focusing on everyone else’s needs but don’t take the time or have the confidence work on our own needs. Too often we say yes when we really want to say no, don’t ask for what we really want and shy away from opportunities when they arise. The good news is that self-confidence can be learned and we can build a set of skills that will encourage you to respond differently.
Come along to this one day course and find out how you can take the first steps to changing your life.

Bargaining and Equality
Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
