WEBINAR RECORDING – The Psychological Contract
About the Webinar
Webinar Aired: Tuesday 27th March, 2018
Duration: 60 mins
In this webinar, global thought leader Dr Sara Cullen explodes the myths of the written contract and the theory behind her latest whitepaper, The 6 Myths of the Written Contract – and how to achieve breakthroughs with the psychological contract.
Drafting and negotiating contracts usually comes with a hefty price tag for both parties. This cost is seen as a necessary investment to protect the parties from one another and adverse events. But is this truly a wise investment?
Even a well written contract will go in the proverbial drawer, no matter how much effort had gone into creating it. While it is sitting there, another one of equal importance is actually being used every day by everyone – the psychological contract.
The psychological contract is the perception of the promises and obligations that a person holds in their mind. It affects everything they do and how they do it. To avoid failure, it must be understood and recognised. But more importantly, the psychological contract offers something the written one cannot. It can be harnessed to drive high performance.
Please Join Dr Sara Cullen as she shows you how to drive success with the psychological contract.
