About the Training

The IL-NET series on exemplary employment practices and skills is designed for Executive Directors and other managers at Centers for Independent Living. The four-part series offers the opportunity to explore the risks and rewards of the employment relationship within the context of a center for independent living. The four-parts include:

Every independent living center faces the risk of events that may be difficult, if not impossible to forecast. Yet the difficulty of accurately forecasting-predicting what, when and who-does not mean put anticipating and preparing for events out of reach. This session explores practical strategies for reducing the likelihood of violence and misconduct and other disruptions in the workplace and planning to protect staff and consumers should events take place despite preparation. Topics covered in this program include sexual harassment, workplace bullying and workplace violence and other circumstances and events that are hard to predict but can cause serious damage to morale, reputation and the health and safety of personnel. We cover:

  • Key workplace rules and protocols
  • Recognizing and addressing harassment
  • Preventing and addressing workplace bullying
  • Managing the unthinkable: workplace violence
