psychology in leadership

Welcome to the 3rd in the series “Psychology in Leadership” featuring podcasts applying Psychological research and theory to leadership.

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

  • Why leaders need to be mindful of a human tendency to be obedient to authority and how this can quash important dissent
  • Daniel Goleman’s work on adapting your leadership style in different circumstances and with different people
  • How behavioural psychology can still have an impact on positive behaviour in the workplace
  • Why the impact Cognitive Dissonance needs to be mitigated in business
