To All Business Owners of Any Size

It seems to me that people need to learn how to protect themselves better in the workplace (and every place else, I guess) There are some significant pieces to it:

Attorneys typically are the ones offering sexual harassment training - and they use scare tactics, are pedantic and boring and nobody really pays attention. They don't do a good job about explaining people's sensitivities and how to respect them.

Today, because everyone is trying to save money, they are apt to use a cheap on-line training program - also relatively worthless in really dealing with the issues.

The people investigating are not neutral. They are looking for evidence to support their client's case. They are not trained in conducting neutral investigations.

There are no standards, no statute of limitations, or anything else that would protect CEOs and other excutives from being condemned.

The law mandates that firms with over 50 employees conduct training. I firmly believe the time has come to train everyone that has even one employee - or one customer.

OK - so you know where I'm going with this - I'd like to offer a group training SOON to members of smaller associations - or small businesses.

May we talk about this??????
