Psychology of Management

New CIPD Certificate

August 3 2005 - The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has developed a Certificate in the Psychology of Management designed to help those involved in managing people to understand employee behaviour and offer alternative and practical ways of achieving change.

According to Vanessa Robinson, CIPD Organisation and Resourcing Adviser, "Exploring change and other management challenges by drawing on psychological research will help managers to understand individual's behaviour better. This will help in communicating the change and help gain employee trust and commitment, both during and after implementation."

The programme uses the expertise of leading Chartered Occupational Psychologists experienced in training and developing managers to look at all aspects of management. The following modules are included in the programme. The psychology of:

  • change
  • leadership
  • teamworking
  • creativity and innovation
  • training
  • well being
  • managing work relationships
  • personal development
  • managing performance
  • selection and assessment
  • influencing and negotiation
  • culture and diversity
  • coaching
  • organisational culture and climate
  • decision-making

Prospective students have the opportunity to attend an open evening in London on 7 September when they can talk to tutors and past students and discover how the programme can be applied to some of the workplace's most challenging situations. Guests are encouraged to bring their managers or work colleagues with them so that they gain a more thorough understanding of what the certificate students will learn.

Mel Owers, a past student, says, "I found the certificate programme to be both an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience, meeting the need to integrate psychological theory with HR best practice. The flexible style of learning and choice of modules has enabled me to add real value to live business issues."

To book a place or to receive further information on the open evening or any other CIPD training course please call the CIPD customer service team on 020 8612 6202 or visit

Human Resource Development: Strategy and Tactics

by Juani Swart, Alan Price, Clare Mann, Steve Brown
  Each chapter in Human Resource Development provides the reader with commentary, activities and review sections in an integrated approach. The action-oriented approach is vital for practicing managers but increasingly for postgraduate and final year undergraduates who have work experience. It is this aspect of the book that fills a gap that currently exists in the market. This text reflects organizational realities and balances and integrates the coverage of individuals, teams and organizational learning.The book is written in a straightforward manner and explains concepts and key issues in a lucid style. The activities are focused and are better suited to encouraging readers to learn.
