Development is a critical factor when looking at improving the performance of a business. Whether this is delivering stand-alone developmental events and learning programmes, executive coaching, “on-boarding" senior leaders, or devising a development centre to bring on employees with high potential, occupational psychologists offer an objective and research-led approach. With a deepening of globalisation, we can be called on to provide innovative solutions that are accessible to participants across the world. Accordingly, this module draws on theories around learning, the training cycle, coaching and team building to provide students with a rounded picture of training and development options to support differing needs in organisations.
The module reviews the models of learning that underpin the work of occupational psychologists in development and coaching, using case studies and guest lecturers to explore best practice in the contemporary business environment. Topics covered include:
1. Learning and development
2. Team dynamics
