Understanding the GST
Since the first official announcement in 2004, GST has been in and out of the news over the last few years. Whilst it is generally acknowledged as something necessary, an air of uncertainty has loomed over whether it will actually be introduced in Malaysia. In a brave move, the BN Government specifically included GST implementation in their Election Manifesto. With the elections over and Government receiving a fresh mandate, this provides a strong signal that GST will finally come.
In a recent news article, the Second Finance Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah ha indicated that the Government is still engaging with politicians, the private sector and the general public on the introduction of the GST. Whilst no deadline has been set, the statement is in line with earlier indications that a timeline of 12 to 18 months will be provided for businesses to prepare for GST.
With this in mind, this talk aims to provide you with insights on the following:

|Breakfast Talk: Dealing with Internal Conflicts and Interpersonal Threats|

RECOGNIZE the early behavioral clues that indicate possible future personality conflicts
BENCHMARK against human conflict dynamics in your workplace
DISCOVER the difference of impulsive and predatory acts of human behavior
OVERCOME the possible escalation of incidents in your organization
GAIN INSIGHTS on techniques to defuse hostile and angry employees in a safe way
Sometimes problems arise also with employees that have been employed with the company or organization for a longer period. Dealing with direct or passive-aggressive behavior in the workplace is a demanding task even for most experienced professionals. We will also explain the difference of affective and predatory behavior models and how to deal with both situations. The ultimate goal of any work related conflict should be the â€ťwin-winâ€ť solutions, but this often requires much work and knowledge of the best practices.
Executive board, directors and managers, HR, employee relations, training and development, security, corporate communications and other sections of the organization need to understand the basic concepts predicting problematic behavior and have tools to peacefully confront the employee in question.
In this training session the participants will also learn the principles of conflict negotiation, basic steps of conflict resolution and how to control your own natural responses. We will also go through common errors and oversight as well as various methods to respond to a threatening or troublesome behavior. What are the individual (static risk factors) as well as situational factors. How to formulate a threat response teams, how to initiate the threat response programs and what types of response strategies can be used. How to monitor and follow-up the case later on.
