Effective, Safe, and Innovative Coaching & Support Strategies in the Pandemic and Beyond
Please join us on Friday, July 9 for our workshop, " Effective, Safe, and Innovative Coaching & Support Strategies in the Pandemic and Beyond" with Highline College.
In this session we will learn and explore strategies for a successful return to the workplace and community through a comprehensive step by step approach. In this process, we will examine ideas for preparing and educating participants of service in understanding disease prevention strategies and ways to minimize risks. We will also discuss plans for how to engage the employer and your participant in discussions around job restructuring/customization, accommodations, and how to keep employees working and their contributions in the workplace meaningful and relevant now and in the future. Then together we will also look at ways to put safety first in the workplace by developing and conducting in-depth safety audits with an emphasis on COVID 19 and viral infection prevention. Our final step in this process will be to identify ways to establish, utilize, and apply adaptive coaching strategies and support in an unpredictable and rapidly changing work environment.
