Managing Within the Law: Part II

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.”

Description:

Keep your company out of court ­ and your managers out of jail ­ with this one-day program.  Included are the laws relating to OSHA, workers compensation, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, IRS regulations relating to independent contractors, Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.  Also covered are the laws of corporate ethics including insider trading, antitrust, export control, intellectual property, foreign corrupt practices, government contracting, political activities and financial reporting, many of which are subject to the U. S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines which require prison terms for violations.

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 I.

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.

Understanding and conforming to legal compliance was very important to our company. We turned to LSA Global to provide a quality and cost effective way to ensure that we were AB 1825 compliant. Their interactive eLearning program was top-notch. It allowed our managers to learn at their own pace, and on their own time. The program was tailored to include our logo and our internal harassment policies. It was interactive and met all federal and state legal requirements. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company looking for an efficient and effective and top quality way to train their managers to be in compliance.

The Next Generation Management Development courses have helped me communicate more effectively with my peers and teammates. By utilizing effective communication techniques such as clarifying and confirming, and asking open ended questions, I have been able to clarify and understand information in situations where I would have otherwise asked limited questions and made false assumptions.

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.

I have worked with LSA Global at previous companies and welcomed the opportunity to bring them in to support my new organization.

LSA is a quality organization, one that I’d recommend to any company looking for a first class training and consulting partner that makes an impact.

We recently contacted LSA Global to assist us with a unique training request. We gave LSA a very short deadline and LSA custom designed a training program to meet our exact requirements within the limited time allotted to them. We found their facilitator to be well versed in the subject matter and very credible; the design provided practical and valuable information to our team of managers. I highly recommend LSA Global, particularly in the area of management training.

LSA exceeded all my expectations. We interviewed 7 potential training and consulting partners and selected LSA due to their expertise, flexibility, and breadth and depth of solutions. We were able to construct a management training course from the modules most appropriate to our needs, and are able to provide additional training from their well developed portfolio of experts. Our managers galvanized as a team throughout the session and are better prepared for the rigors of a competitive market.
