This three-day train-the-trainer course will allow participants to deliver the basic course, which is aimed at:

  1. defining leadership styles
  2. identifying leadership styles compatible with union values
  3. recognizing the conditions and skills needed to build union leadership

In this session, we will also identify a vision of union leadership and the conditions for developing unifying leadership


The aim of this advanced course is to help participants better understand the social approach taken by stewards and clearly identify the nature of a steward’s interventions. The course is also designed to help participants take a preventive union approach when their co-workers are faced with psychosocial problems or addiction.

In addition to helping participants develop a union approach to settling psychological harassment cases, the course will provide them with an effective method for investigating such cases, which are never easy to manage or address.
