Our humanness at work: Psychological Mechanisms MasterclassesTM

These masterclasses are designed for employees interested in engaging in psychological theories, facilitated by Prof. Casey who has years of practical applied experience.

About this course

The modules for this course have been developed in response to the common themes and issues that arise within individual sessions with our specialist psychologists.

The aim of each masterclass is to ultimately optimise employee engagement in the constantly changing and often uncertain environment of the contemporary and complex organisation. The masterclasses will encourage lively discussions and the sharing of interesting perspectives. The classes provide a supported space to discuss difficult organisational problems.
