Training Programs

Listed below are some of the training programs we run. For more information or to request a tailored training program, please contact us.

Bystander Training

This seminar has been developed in response to the consistent reporting by women in Orijen’s coaching and mentoring programs across government, universities and the private sector, that not only is harassment persistent and pervasive, but also, that when the people observe it, they feel powerless to do anything about it.

The seminars provide training in how to recognize, intervene, and show empathy to targets of bullying and harassment and encourages bystanders to disrupt attacks before they happen and help survivors report and seek support after the Understanding bias

This training provides participants with an understanding of the nature of bias, its impact on the workplace and psychological insights into how their own behaviours might be influenced by bias and how to eliminate this influence. Suitable for teams of all types, it has been designed to help people at all levels including operational managers and staff, HR managers and trainers and senior executives and business leaders.

Career resilience for women

This workshop enables women to maximise their career potential through assistance in identifying their long-term career goals and core strengths, highlighting potential career pitfalls and providing strategies and techniques for ensuring career resilience and successes. This workshop ensures women have the insight, skills and confidence to operate in ways that will assist with career success, exposing the blind spots that women can have in relation to career success and assisting women in building their professional network.

Negotiating and influencing

As lives have become increasingly complex and business structures continue rapid change, negotiating skills have become a necessity. This workshop examines negotiation through the lens of gender and is geared to the challenge’s women face. Participants will examine the differences between women and men in their propensity to negotiate and their very distinct preferred negotiating styles. They will learn how to get in touch with what they want, discover ways to negotiate for it, and develop ways to help others get what they need with this straightforward, collaborative method.

Authentic leadership

For many aspiring women leaders in Australia, there are few successful female role-models. This program assists women in developing an authentic leadership style which is true to their core values and beliefs and enables them to lead through personal conviction, and gain power beyond their formal authority. Participants will examine their personal value propositions, assess their strengths and identify their leadership style. Questions and practice sessions will focus on leadership challenges drawn from participants’ experience. Participants will leave this session empowered to be authentic leaders.

Mentoring and coaching skills for the workplace

We help our clients to train leaders within their organisation to become more effective mentors and provide our expertise on how to set up effective, well-structured and high impact internal ‘mentoring programs’. Our coaching and mentoring skills training programs are tailored to the different levels of seniority, professions and organisational contexts. Each program teaches the fundamental skills; however, the scenarios and case-studies are developed to reflect the organisation’s culture and needs.
