During this time of societal change, new expectations are reshaping HR practices by putting the focus on the importance of creating a more inclusive and equitable culture. That means enabling employees to understand that behaviors that were once overlooked, such as microaggressions in the form of belittling, insulting or offensive remarks, are no longer tolerated.
The way forward is clear: creating a healthier culture is no longer an option, it is a requirement. That’s why Kantola Training Solutions has developed a new family of harassment prevention courses that lead the way toward changing employee perspectives and helping to make workplaces better, for everyone. Here’s how we do it.
Real-life interviews: hearing people share their actual experiences offers valuable insights
Backed by a growing body of research, Kantola’s real-life interviews offer a powerful way to change perspectives. There is simply nothing more impactful than hearing someone else’s truth, because knowing something happened to an individual is vastly different from understanding how that person felt in the situation. These compelling accounts give the opportunity for learners to gain insights that can lead to realizations—offering the potential to positively alter long-standing perceptions about other people’s backgrounds, identities, and experiences.
Authentic storytelling: realistic, relatable stories captivate attention and reshape thinking
When portrayed in a realistic and relatable way, storytelling through video can captivate attention and reshape thinking. That is why video storytelling has evolved as a transformative way to educate, inspire and enlighten. Kantola’s cinematic quality videos use the best talent in the industry to bring authentic storytelling to a whole new level. The training explores gray areas and breaks down complex ideas and situations in a way that feels understandable and real to the learner.
Learning through empathy: revealing questions foster compassion for the feelings of others
Beyond testing around the concepts of harassment, great learning connects to the participant’s feelings, creating a strong impact and breaking through barriers that can divide. At the heart of this is enabling empathy and creating moments of self-reflection.
Kantola’s interactive courses lean into the power of this concept by providing learners with the chance to affect the outcome of scenarios and see the impact of their choices. The training includes revealing questions like “How do you think this made him feel?” which fosters compassion by tapping into the learners’ own inner thoughts and feelings.
