Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,

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.

Learn inclusive leadership with a dedicated team

This course is presented by the NHSE London Workforce Equality & Inclusion Team together with NHS Leadership Academy, a part of NHS England (NHSE). The Academy aims to develop exceptional leadership, equality, and diversity across the NHS, thereby improving service delivery and patient care.

To take part in this course you will need a computer, laptop, or mobile phone access with internet for 30 minutes per week. You may also need a notebook for your learning journal. Each week, you will be provided with activities that you can implement at work. In total, the learning time (at the computer and practical) will be two hours. You can record your thoughts and learning experiences, in your learning journal and reflect further through writing.
