Professional Development Workshops
Workshops are a great way for organisations and individuals to access short duration face-to-face training in an interactive, dynamic and fun environment. Our workshops are usually one day in duration and include learning materials and handouts for you to take back to your workplace. Our presenters are engaging and knowledgeable as well as highly qualified both in their relevant management fields and holding the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or higher. Recognition First work nationally, and can facilitate workshops in capital cities or regional areas. Costs vary depending on a number of factors such as location and number of participants, so contact Recognition First so we can tailor a quote to suit your organisation's needs. Many of our workshops are aligned with units of competency from nationally recognised qualifications so participants have the option of completing assessments in order to receive an accredited Statement of Attainment.
These workshops have been designed to address key management areas. They have been developed based on feedback we have received from the number of small, medium and large organisations we work to reflect the current issues faced by managers in today's workplaces. They are ideal for team leaders, supervisors, coordinators and middle and senior managers who are looking to develop their skills and knowledge.
Managing Industrial Relations - This workshop is aimed at demystifying the processes and functions of the Australian Industrial Relations system. The workshop covers the terminology of IR and include information and strategies for preventing and resolving disputes.
How to Manage Your Budget - As managers we’re responsible for achieving organisational goals with a finite amount of resources. Budgets are a key planning tool for any organisation whether you work for a for-profit, or not-for-profit company. As a manager you need to understand your organisation’s budgetary and financial processes, work within them, and ensure that your team understands works within the relevant parameters.
Managing Yourself to Get the Job Done - Managers are not ‘born Managers’ or grown in a greenhouse – often we’re promoted and given the title of “Manager” without really knowing exactly what that means or what it entails. In reality it is a whole new level of responsibility. Responsibility for others yes, if you manage staff, but more importantly it’s more responsibility for yourself and your own work.
Risk Management - How would your organisation cope if a virus crashed your IT system and all of your data was destroyed? What would you do if a major supplier went out of business unexpectedly, or if a change of government meant that overnight 65% of your funding was completely cut off? What are your employees and customers saying or ‘blogging’ about your brand to a potential audience of millions?
Managing Poor Performance/Turning Poor Performance Into Positive Outcomes - This is an aspect of management that can strike fear into the heart of many a manager, but for those of us who manage staff it is something we have to deal with on a daily basis. What do we do about poor performance? How do we motivate our staff? How do we keep our staff focused and engaged? We often know that staff can do the job well, sometimes it’s a matter of unlocking the secret that will ensure they will do it well.
