Creating Harmony In The Workplace

Description:  Mergers, downsizing, and layoffs have become a way of life in the United States.  Most employers focus on the employees being let go, but what of those left behind?  Many experience guilt, shame, and resentment.  Those feelings can decrease productivity or, in the case of mergers, create divisions.  Participants learn how to confront and express their thoughts in a healthy way.  They also learn how to deal with the loss of their co-workers and cope with workplace distress.  Creating Harmony in the Workplace also helps managers effectively guide their staff through the turbulence of change.
