Managing Within the Law: Part I

Managing Within the Law Onsite Program

‘Managing Within the Law’ is still making its impact on management 18 months later. I was stopped by a manager a few days ago, who wanted to let me know that he had been dealing with a situation and was able to correct the behavior/performance issue successfully due to specific skills and examples he acquired in your program.”

Notes:

  1. This program has been approved for 5.25 MCLE credit hours by the State Bar California and 5.25 HRCI recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the Human Resource Certification Institute.

  2. This seminar complies with the mandatory California harassment training requirements (AB 1825). This program is fully updated for the new legal requirements for 2007. We cover not only sexual harassment, as required by law, but also all other forms of illegal harassment, discrimination and retaliation.

Description:
Keep your company out of court ­ and your managers out of jail ­ with this one-day program. Included are the laws relating to wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, defamation, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which provides for up to 20 years in prison for falsification of documentation, and for up to 10 years in prison for firing whistleblowers.

Although the program starts with these laws to set the context, the emphasis throughout the day is on the spirit of the law, providing your people with an ethical compass as well as with legal do’s and don’ts.  Your company’s policies, procedures and values are integrated into the program.

This program can be taken together with, or separately from, Managing Within the Law Part II.

Our attorney-trainers are skilled facilitators with years of experience in the courtroom and the classroom.  The program is highly participative with group interaction, small group case studies, video vignettes, skill-building exercises, and plenty of time to ask questions.  Participants receive a comprehensive workbook and reference guide they can use again and again.

I consistently look to LSA Global when I need custom programs put together for my client groups. I can always count on LSA to do a thorough needs analysis and to put together spectacular programs that are well received.

I had been working with LSA for many years with my prior company. Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much basic management skills training. After identifying and presenting a program recently, our managers are excited and talking in the halls about the great experience. LSA saves us time in delivering the right training for our needs.

Phyllis Moracco
HR Director

Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.

Frank Abbott
Chief Financial Officer

LSA has become the gold standard in team building and management training at Genomic Health! I have a hard time finding facilitators that come close to their level of customization, expertise and experience.

Emily Couey
Director of Human Resources

I have worked with other training companies and found it to be more of a seller/buyer relationship than one of matching the right expertise to our business issues. That’s what LSA does – ask the hard questions, listen, and understand our business needs. We receive the benefit of their expertise from assistance with personal development plans to enhancing team performance, to looking at enterprise-wide challenges. It’s all about helping our business succeed as we grow. Right now, LSA is providing great ideas, a fresh approach, and valuable guidance as we develop our management team and accelerate our client relationship management results.

Kristin Westland-Kaune
Director, Team Development

LSA provided top notch solutions right when and how we needed them. They exceeded my expectations from a speed, quality, and cost standpoint. I recommend them to anyone looking for a true business partner in the Learning and Development arena. The breadth and depth of their expertise has helped us hit tight deadlines across multiple projects.

On behalf of Roche and my staff I would like to sincerely thank you for your help with this. The English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment and coaching that you provided for our team was a great success.

What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from “training” organizations. LSA gives you the assistance you need to define and reach your goal, and then they give you a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”

David Fiano
Vice President Human Resources

LSA has been a tremendous asset to my portfolio, both at my current company and my past company. As an HR leader, I am always looking for ways to find external resources that can provide a solution to our management training needs. LSA does that for me. Their solutions are presented in a much more leadership-oriented manner so as to be crisp, business relevant, and easy to apply right back on the job. I will continue to augment our programs using LSA solutions.

Ken Boehm
VP of Human Resources

I am very impressed with the quality of work and talent. LSA did a great job of listening to my needs and providing the exact management training program expertise I needed to get the job done.

Hyperion has a commitment to lifelong learning. LSA helps us provide the right business sales training, management training programs, and leadership development programs at the right time to meet the needs of both individuals and departments.

LSA’s approach and ability to bring the best resources to eBay has been a great asset. They really focus on helping us succeed in any way they can and are very flexible in meeting our management and talent needs.

Each program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.

Frank J. Kuypers
Business Development Manager

The refreshing thing about LSA is that they focus on understanding our business situation and helping me succeed instead of selling a product. With over 150 experts, they are an invaluable resource that helps me deliver higher quality results faster. I recommend them to anyone looking to improve the performance of their workforce.
