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.

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.

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.
