About this Course
Some organisations have adopted EWPs to assist their employees in managing work and family stressors. The costs of implementing these programmes are high and the truism about EWPS being ‘one-size-fits-all’ programmes need to be addressed. Also, the effectiveness of EWPs as work-life balance strategies is being contested by practitioners and academics.
Using our creative and innovative tools, we assist organisations in re-defining, re-formulating and implementing tactically aligned WLBS that address domain-specific stressors and assist employees in achieving meaningful work-life balance. In this program, we also train HR practitioners to identify practices that are strategically fitted to address domain-specific stressors.

B. Social Exchanges (Interpersonal relationships) at the workplace Courses
SBM offers training for the following skill sets through training and other development opportunities to support organisations in terms of productivity, efficiency and performance improvements in accordance with scientific and theoretical methods. The courses are majorly soft skills. The development of these skills impact on business success. The courses in this category comprise;
I. Social Skills Development – This skill set is very vital in literally every situation in places of work. It entails the development/enhancement of the capacity to associate respectfully with other people while engaging with work. We train organisational members to employ context-appropriate behaviours and conflict resolution skills.
II. Advanced – order thinking: This soft skill includes critical thinking, decision making and problem solving. In this programme, employees are empowered further to manage their own duties and those of others in the most efficient and far reaching manner. It is suitable for employees in higher organisational positions.
III. Communication skills: There are hierarchies in communication; that is, verbal, non-verbal and listening skills. Most workplace situations arise from communication. Strong communication skills facilitate smooth and effective organisational processes. We train organisational members to improve their communication skills
IV. Self-control skills: although this skill is not easily noticed, it is a very important skill needed in workplaces. It describes the capacity to suspend gratification, handle emotions, regulate behaviours, control impulses and direct and focus attention. Employees who have strong self-control skills make better decisions, communicate very effectively and easily resolve conflicts. It has been empirically proven to have to have a strong effect on workplace success.
V. Positive self-concept skills: Self-efficacy, self-leadership, self-esteem, self-confidence and a sense of wellbeing are categorised under this skill set. Although employers downplay this skill set, empirical evidence report that it impacts on workplace success.
VI. Leadership with Humility: The theory of ‘Iceberg of Ignorance’ proposes that most of the problems of an organisation are hidden from the management. It suggests that Executive Management of organisations are only aware of 4%, Team Managers see 9%, Team Leaders see 74% while Staff see 100% of the challenges respectively. It is impossible therefore for the most gallant management team to solve all the problems of the workplace, especially if they are only abreast of the ‘tip of the iceberg’. We proffer and have a well-designed approach to melting the iceberg – leadership with humility.
