  6. Leadership competencies required to manage stress effectively
  • Individual case management. Here you will gain an understanding of:
  1. How to carry out an individual risk assessment by structuring your conversation around the management standards
  2. Manage those who are off work and those returning to work, including the importance of the psychological contract
  • Creating a high performing team. Here you will learn about some positive interventions that you might use to help create a high performing team including how to:

  2. Design healthy jobs and tasks
  3. Establish social capital and a just culture
