    Within the words “written” in invisible ink are important agreements between the employer and the employee that shape the relationship, thus affecting employee experience, productivity, satisfaction, and several other important metrics. If you work in HR--or if you manage people--you’ve entered a contract that is in effect from day one of the employment association. This contract is not written, and it cannot be seen, signed, or notarized. In this presentation we will discuss the concept of the psychological contract at work and explore the (often forgotten and misunderstood) exchange relationship that has a myriad of impacts from both the employee and employer viewpoints. Armed with different insights into the “whys” of employee behavior and reactions, you’ll leave this session with an action plan to assist managers in building awareness, and you’ll become familiar with the effect the psychological contract has on the workplace and the people in it!

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Understand the psychological contract from the employer and employee perspective
    • Recognize the impacts of psychological contract breaches from the employer and employee perspective
    • Identify the importance of setting clear expectations and goals for employees, and how to communicate those expectations effectively
    • Discover ways to repair broken employer and employee exchange relationships
    • Leverage technology to ensure employee expectations are in line with current trends and expectations

    A common myth is that leaders are born. The problem with this is that we tend to blame poor leadership as something only someone else could fix. We hear complaints, identify miscommunication, and put poor results in the hands of someone else to resolve. In fact, leadership is a practice, a muscle we can all develop over time with consistent, intentional focus, and once mastered, we become our own solution.

    In this interactive workshop, we will look at the choices we all make that affect our leadership, how language impacts our ability to lead, and you’ll discover your top 10 Leadership Blind Spots that ultimately are holding you back from being an even more effective and inspirational leader.
