Council adds three new training sessions for fall

The Providers’ Council has scheduled three new training this fall covering topics ranging from communication to coaching and compliance.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, Advancing Communication and Basic Critical Workplace Skills trainer Wally Coyle will lead attendees in basic self-assessment and other exercises that pinpoint their strengths and bring to light opportunities for improvement. Interactive activities will take participants through the paces of non-defensive language, communication and effective listening. A mixture of discussions, case scenarios, practice sessions, and group exercises keep the training pace lively and engaging.  Location: At Seven Hills Foundation, 81 Hope Ave., Worcester.

On Thursday, Dec. 1, John Howard leads Coaching for High Performance, a training that aims to teach participants to the importance of building rapport and trust with employees to best facilitate goal setting and manage their progress. Learn how you can use a coaching approach with those you manage or lead to promote workplace engagement and staff performance. Location: Walker, 1968 Central Ave., Needham.

And on Tuesday, Dec. 13, trainers Heidi Ferreira and LaToya Staine Carriker, both from The Home for Little Wanderers, lead Compliance and Ethics: A Valuable Partnership in Social Services. Compliance in your organizations means conforming to rules, specifications, policies, standards and laws, while ethics are the moral principles that govern a person’s or group’s behaviors. The trainers will look at how compliance and ethics apply to mandated reporting, confidentiality, written information security plans and even social media. Location: Northeast Arc, 6 Southside Rd. Danvers.

Information and registration is available online here. And don’t forget to check out the 34 workshops being offered during the Providers’ Council’s 41st Annual Convention on Oct. 24 at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston.
