Develop healthy psychological contracts to ensure equality and diversity at work

A psychological contract is not written down, but it’s vital to workplace success. Simply put, it defines the relationship, commitments, and expectations between leadership and staff.

Developing and maintaining healthy psychological contracts can be difficult but it’s an essential part of leadership. This five-week course explores how you, as a leader, can create psychological contracts that help ensure both equality and diversity.

Hone your understanding of psychological contracts

Over the five weeks of this course, you’ll learn more about human relationships and the key factors to make them successful, the skills needed to create and maintain a psychological contract, and your inclusive leadership role.

Develop practical skills to foster workplace diversity and relationships

After learning about psychological contracts and how to maintain them, you’ll get clear instructions on how to apply this theory to your own workplace.

You’ll take away key action items that you can implement immediately, as well as effective ways to prevent and recover from psychological contract breaches.
