Many individuals have great intentions of assisting others who are struggling with addictions or mental health issues. Sadly, many are afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. As a result, countless employees remain silent about their personal challenges because they fear they will be met with judgment, or that disclosure will prevent them from moving up the company ladder.

Allan shares valuable tools of how to approach employees who are displaying signs of stress, distraction or substance use. He draws from his personal and professional experience. A proactive approach in these situations will, in turn, lead to a reduction in risks and liabilities, fewer injuries and accidents, and increased employee loyalties.

Participants will learn the difference between sympathy and empathy, and understand how to support employees, while expecting competence from them. When a relationship between the employer and employee is formed based on trust and respect, individual and team morale will build. This inevitably leads to a more productive and positive work environment.
