Link Christin joins host Craig Price to discuss workplace substance abuse. Dealing with the workplace substance abuse of a co-worker is never easy. What is appropriate, when is it crossing the line from professional to personal, should you even get involved? Then there is the health and well being of the company as well. Is this person becoming less trustworthy, is their work slipping and hurting our clients? Link Christin comes to the podcast to discuss that and give a preview of his presentation (with co-presenter Jeffery Mangrum) “The Hero’s Journey: Timely Confrontation of Substance Abuse in Your Firm” they will deliver on Friday, November 1st at the Association of Legal Administrators Region 6 Conference in Reno, NV.
The two discuss how to approach the co-worker, how to bring it up to Human Resources, what kind of policies and programs should your company have in place to help and more importantly that a person in recovery is redeemable. This is a podcast no HR person should miss.
Link is the Adviser to Hazelden’s Legal Professionals Program in Center City, Minnesota and CEO of Heightened Performance LLC, a behavioral health consulting company for law firm and law schools. You can connect with him at firstname.lastname@example.org
