Course Overview

Personal Hygiene at Work

As a manager, you’re probably used to dealing with tough situations: employees who insist on being late, team members who miss deadlines, and staff members who can’t get along. But conversations about an employee’s personal hygiene at work appearance are a whole different ball game. It’s something that we often avoid talking about, or worse, make light of. This course has two major themes. First, we’ll give you a framework for having those tough conversations. We’ll also give you some guidelines for customizing that framework for your organization. Then, we’ll look at some common tough conversations that come up, including body odor, flatulence, poor clothing and hair decisions, and bad breath. At the end of the course participants will have a chance to role play a tough situation. You’ll walk away well prepared for any kind of challenging conversation.

Career Path

This insightful course is less about career development, more about improving your ability to deal with difficult situations.  If you oversee a team of any size or nature whatsoever, it is important to know how, when and in what manner to address issues such as these.  Failure to address problems where they occur can have an impact on the whole business – as can addressing them in the wrong way.  From team leaders to business managers to small business owners and so on, your communication skills and tact when it comes to the most sensitive of issues can and will have wider repercussions.
