Event: Workplace Health-Mitigating risks, protecting staff

Complimentary breakfast event
Nairobi, Kenya

24 Jun

More >

Create a healthy workplace! Are your employees at risk of disease and injury?

Join InterHealth for a breakfast event exploring how your organisation can fulfil duty of care through creating a healthy workplace. Malaria, stress, musculoskeletal problems, dehydration, fever are all very real, daily risks when working in the international humanitarian sector.

We will be exploring what workplace health means to you and your organisation, taking a look at specific risks found within the workplace and thinking through the steps which can be taken to mitigate those risks.

When your staff are sick, not only does it cost your organisation financially but it also results in less resource to meet your mission and objectives to help those who need your support. We will consider the WHO model for a healthy workplace and create ample time for interactive conversations to learn from each other and from current research in creating healthy workplaces. We encourage participants to bring along case studies and example staff care practices.

Team Dynamics & Dealing with Conflict

Two Day Training
Nairobi, Kenya

26 Sep - 27 Sep

More >

Arguments, resentment, gossip – get to grips with what’s really going on

For managers working in relief, development and mission sectors, dealing with everyday relationships can often be every bit as demanding as the  job  itself. Left unaddressed, the often competing demands of headquarters, colleagues and team members can lead to misunderstandings and challenges in team relations.

Our thought-provoking and interactive workshop will take an in-depth look at the group dynamics which can unfold in these settings. It will also teach you  how to use conflict creatively to strengthen your teams instead of letting it pull them apart.

We will be drawing on field scenarios, organisational research and cutting-edge  mediation  theory to equip you with the insight  to recognise what is going on in  your teams and the facilitation skills to  deal with problems early and effectively.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify  how intense emotions  can arise at work with an emphasis on relief, development and mission settings
  • Understand the impact that these emotions can have on team dynamics and how it can lead to conflict
  • Assess the impact of past life experiences on current working relationships
  • Apply effective listening skills to support constructive team relations
  • Use mediation techniques to identify and address the real issues which  underlie team conflict
  • Hold difficult conversations and offer constructive feedback

Who is it for?

We have designed this workshop for country directors, line managers, supervisors and team leaders. We also welcome anyone interested in attending.
