Module 1: An introduction to psychologically safe line management techniques

Module 2: Supporting employees to access and return from parental leave

Module 1:

This workshop will equip Managers with psychologically safe line management techniques and guide Managers in supporting employees on their return from parental leave.

The Objective of the Workshop:

A half-day introduction to the principles of psychological safety, including trauma-informed practice and compassion-focused thinking (CFT). A thought-provoking, yet practical session that introduces the theory and brings to life how managers can practically implement these approaches in their management style to support staff more effectively. This is essential training for all line managers, useful for managing all aspects of day-to-day life, but especially when significant life events occur. The focus is on the directly affected employee but also considers the needs of other colleagues in the team.

We will cover:

  • Identifying the needs of employees when major life events occur and how this may impact the team
  • Understanding psychological safety, trauma-informed practice, and compassion
  • Understanding the specific impacts of separation, new parenthood, bereavement and loss
  • Practical ways to be a more supportive manager and colleague
  • Case studies and problem-solving the impact of specific events

Duration: 3 hours online
