Despite the global challenges, I hope you feel you are growing, both personally and professionally. But it may well be that Psychology can offer you some new ways or approaching the way you lead yourself and others!

Over a series of episodes, I will be taking an interesting look into a range of psychological theories and research, so you can apply the lessons in your business life.

In this podcast I look at 4 areas and apply them to leadership and business:

  • Martin Seligman and the creation of the Positive Psychology movement in 1998
  • Muzafer Sherif’s ‘Realistic Conflict Theory’ and how ‘In’ and ‘Out’ groups are created
  • Carol Dweck and the importance of developing a Growth Mindset rather than a Fixed Mindset
  • Our tendency to conform to group behaviour, relating back to the work of Solomon Asch
