SAULT STE. MARIE, ON –Workplace Safety North (WSN), has announced a new May 8 lunch and learn session on leadership training.

“As part of the WSN Feed Your Brain Lunch and Learn Series, we want to invite the community, human resources, and health and safety staff to attend an information session on leadership on May 8,” says Mike Lemay, WSN Health and Safety Specialist based in Sault Ste. Marie. “The speaker is very good and this interactive lunch and learn should be popular, so pre-registration is required.”

In the session, participants will learn about a new program called, ‘Leadership Essentials.’ Presented by Brett Webb, WSN Culture and Organizational Development Specialist, the program goes beyond traditional one-time training to create long-term, sustainable improvements in organizational culture.

  • Team development topics: goals, values and beliefs, engagement, support and feedback and trust
  • Gain a better understanding of how to improve workplace culture, health and safety, and how to create strength-based leadership practices

Participants can enjoy a complimentary light lunch or bring their own. Seating is limited, registration must be made in advance. A similar presentation will be held June 11 in Thunder Bay.
