Psychologically Safe Leader Method
We understand that for some individuals registering for the full program isn't always an option.
Maybe you have a limited learning and development budget that wouldn’t cover the full program price, and being able to register for individual courses would allow you to get started.
Maybe you're a business owner who doesn’t have a budget for learning and development and investing in a full program might not be possible just yet.
Or perhaps in your specific job role, your responsibilities might not include employee accommodation or psychological health and safety, so you like the idea of being able to pick and choose the courses that add the most value to your journey.
Whatever the reason may be, we're grateful to be able to offer flexible options for your situation so that anyone can leverage the Psychologically Safe Leader Method courses.
