4.The demands on the modern employee

It is important to explore what employees of today are dealing with in their daily lives and what impact that is having on them. This lesson will help you understand the demands on employees and colleagues and how to react to them.

5.New ways of working

The traditional office-based 9-5 has lost significant traction over the past decade. Here we discuss the new ways of working for the modern employee.

6.Happiness at work

There are several theories about employee commitment, and different classifications of commitment types. We are going to unpack three kinds of commitment and give some examples.

7.Understanding employee performance

The employee lifecycle is a representation of the various phases an average employee will experience in their time with an employer. To understand employee performance, we take a deeper look at performance management, styles and coaching.

8.Discretionary effort

One of the ways to keep performance levels improving is by getting employees to tap into discretionary effort. This is an elusive but pivotal concept when it comes to people doing their very best.

1.Power in the workplace

Power is the ability to make things happen. It is about having influence over the ideas and the behaviours of others. In this lesson we discuss the key concepts managers should be conscientious of.

2.The importance of groups in the workplace

The reasons why teams are both beneficial to organisations and the people who are members of the team are multiple. In this lesson we take a walk through the key aspects of workplace groups.

To optimise productivity, employee happiness and performance we discuss the major theories of teams and how to apply them in an organisation.

We have looked at the theoretical concepts and definitions of teams and have explored some key models and theories which are still used today to build effective teams. In this lesson we discuss some practical realities which create complexity and challenges to managing a team effectively.


The visible measurable result of either ‘collaboration’ or ‘teamwork’ is very often the same, but there are some significant differences. Today we take a look at effective collaboration.

6.Healthy competition in teams

Knowing the difference between healthy and unhealthy competition can really assist in ensuring that teams remain collaborative and in a state of positivity with each other and the organisation. In today’s lesson we discuss healthy competition in teams.

7.Introduction to team building

No matter how cohesive or strong a team is, there may always be a need for team members to spend focused time on re-establishing the bonds between each other and reaffirming their sense of being a unit. For this lesson we discuss team building and how to approach it.

8.Psychological safety in teams

For the last lesson of module 2, we discuss psychological safety and removing fear in the workplace.

1.Team Building in practice

Team building is a focused intervention that helps re energise and regain a sense of camaraderie within a team. Here you will learn how to approach team building effectively.

2.A model of culture

Organisational culture can be defined as ‘the way we do things around here’. In this lesson we look at the typical ways in which employees behave and understand the world of work.

3.How do you measure culture?

The goal of this lesson is to discuss the way in which people behave and what is seen to be normal in a work culture

4.Change is constant

This lesson explores what it means to be an organisation that is continually changing and evolving in the world of work and how managing change and its impact on the psychology of people can make an organisation more effective.

5.Resistance to change

While most of us would like to believe that we are adaptive, flexible, and open to new ways of doing things, as humans, we are likely to resist change. In organisations in particular, employees' resistance to change is a normal reaction. But why do employees resist change?

6.Managing change in organisations

Smart organisations understand that having effective ways of dealing with change can limit the negative consequences and help them capitalise on the positive ones. This lesson is about managing change for better results

Talent management is what an organisation can do to get the best out of its workforce. Let’s walk through the do’s and don'ts.

Coaching has multiple benefits for organisations who make use of it. What exactly is coaching and how do you do it?

This lesson is going to explore the world of diverse organisations and the role that an understanding of people can play in managing this effectively

Understanding what diversity is, is one thing, but when you have a whole workforce with multiple aspects of difference, that diversity needs to be managed. Here we show you how it’s done.
