Calgary Branch: Mysterious Barricades Free Concert

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Calgary Branch Social Committee would like to invite Calgary Branch members to take part in a live concert through Mysterious Barricades to bring awareness of suicide and mental health.

Register by September 9, 2019

The Calgary Branch Social Committee would like to invite Calgary Branch members to take part in a live concert to bring awareness of suicide and mental health.

Mysterious Barricades hosts concerts in 15 cities across Canada to raise awareness of suicide and mental health. Music variety includes classical, choral, and jazz, performed by some of Canada’s most talented musicians. People affected by suicide, mental health professionals, community figures, politicians, and ordinary Canadians are encouraged to speak up about mental health and suicide in an effort to reduce stigma and provide support. 

These concerts are intended to raise awareness of the mysterious barricades that exist between mental illness and health. Music is used as a way to open pathways to meaningful discourse on difficult subjects such as suicide and mental illness. In concerts, people who celebrate life and hope are brought together with artists who believe that music is a visceral, deeply healing, and connective force that unites and transforms.

These free concerts will be performed for live audiences between September 5 and 14, 2019, and will be streamed on Saturday, September 14 as one day-long concert that begins at sunrise in St. John’s, and follows the sun across Canada to end at sunset in Victoria.

As with all the live concerts, the video stream is free to enjoy, and will be available for viewing on the Mysterious Barricades website until September 21, 2019.

Mental Health, Resilience & Perseverance (Edmonton)

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This presentation will educate you about mental health and help you recognize how we need to support people who are struggling with mental illness.

Register by September 18, 2019

Mental health care means more than just taking care of our physical selves. It also means ensuring the well-being of our mental, emotional, and spiritual sides. This presentation will educate you about mental health and help you recognize how we need to support people who are struggling with mental illness.

Experiencing mental illness can be a very frightening and isolating experience, whether it affects you or someone you care about. Contact with the everyday world is changed when our mental health is affected, and everything we do can become more of a challenge.

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one in three Canadians will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. As the second highest cause for hospitalization in Canada, mental illness strikes people from all walks of life and all ethnic backgrounds, at every income and age level.

In this course, you will learn:

  1. Why striving for work-life balance may not be your best option
  2. About navigating our mental health and that of those around us
  3. Why negative thoughts can have so much power
  4. What we all bring with us to work

Advanced Ethical Decision Making (Edmonton)

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

To develop greater sensitivity to ethical issues, ethical judgement, motivation, and take informed and committed ethical action.

Register by September 20, 2019

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills, and personal confidence. In this course, you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

Upon completing this module, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  2. Reflect on and develop a deeper level of awareness regarding personal ethical challenges.
  3. Apply critical thinking tools to each step using accounting ethical dilemmas.
  4. Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral sensitivity
    • Moral judgment
    • Moral intention
    • Moral character
  5. Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision-making to these dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  6. Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

This half-day workshop gives you the basic knowledge, tools, and tips on how to manage employees effectively.

Register by September 25, 2019

Once you've been promoted to team lead, supervisor, or manager, you often end up doing "HR off the side of your desk." Yet, as a technical professional, you probably were not trained in human resources management principles or the legislative framework surrounding HR. This half-day workshop gives you the basic knowledge, tools, and tips on how to manage employees effectively: getting the right people in the door, managing their performance effectively, and helping people transition who are not a good a fit for their roles or your organization.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to apply best practices in:

  • Interviews & Selection
    • Know what to look for when screening a resume, and shortlist candidates efficiently
    • Develop effective interview questions and apply different interview techniques
    • Avoid asking inappropriate questions that should not be asked in an interview (prevent discrimination)

  • Performance Management & Progressive Discipline (including Terminations/Layoffs)
    • Describe the performance management cycle and process
    • Explain the manager’s and the employee’s roles in performance management (including setting & managing expectations)
    • Know what to do before, during, and after a performance review meeting
    • Apply the steps of progressive discipline and document performance matters appropriately
    • Distinguish between termination for cause and without cause
    • Terminate an employee effectively (when and how to have the difficult “firing” meeting)

Register by October 16, 2018 - Seating is Limited!

This session is for APEGA members who evaluate, classify, report, or audit publicly issued reserve and resource reports that must adhere to the National Instrument (NI) 51-101 Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities.

Advanced Ethical Decision Making (Calgary)

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

To develop greater sensitivity to ethical issues, ethical judgement, motivation and take informed and committed ethical action.

Register by October 22, 2019

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills, and personal confidence. In this course, you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

Upon completing this module, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  2. Reflect on and develop a deeper level of awareness regarding personal ethical challenges.
  3. Apply critical thinking tools to each step using accounting ethical dilemmas.
  4. Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral sensitivity
    • Moral judgment
    • Moral intention
    • Moral character
  5. Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision-making to these dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  6. Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Let's Start Talking Again: Helping Leaders Lead Through Communication (Calgary)

9:00 am - 12:30 pm

This workshop will not only give you the keys to better communication, it will include exercises to show you how to communicate better to get you on the right track immediately.

Register by November 13, 2019

We communicate more than we ever have in the past. With email, text, social media, and the internet, many people are constantly telling others what they think and how they feel. But are we really communicating well when it counts? Can we have the kind of face-to-face conversations in the workplace that are needed to move organizations forward?

The biggest problem many organizations have today are difficult conversations that either aren’t being held, or if they are, they aren’t being done very well. The most important thing a leader can do is influence the behaviour of others, and the best and easiest way to provide that influence is through effective communication.

When you participate in this session, you will learn:

  • The importance of leading teams and saying what needs to be said, but doing it without attitude or a big ego
  • Why good listeners are good communicators
  • Ways to control conversations by asking questions
  • How to prepare for and have difficult conversations
  • Tips to communicate more effectively on any situation
  • Ways to improve body language
  • Ways to build “cultures of communication” within organizations
