Season 2 Episode 14
For our Christmas Special let's dive into positive psychology with a two parter featuring our friends, Jonny and Joshua from Bailey and French.
Bailey and French are pioneers, they bring evidence based positive psychology to organisations to facilitate great performance and wellbeing. I was lucky enough to spend some time with the co-founder and lead consultant, Joshua French and business consultant (and friend of the show) Jonny Line.
After our traditional introductions we hear a bit about Joshua's background and the conversations that led to the formation of Bailey and French. We hear more about their approach to bringing positive psychology to organisations and their individual research interests - peak experience moments and psychological capital. We finish with a reflection on some memorable training moments.

Quote from Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
"If you are interested in something, you will focus on it, and if you focus attention on anything, it is likely that you will become interested in it. Many of the things we find interesting are not so by nature, but because we took the trouble of paying attention to them."
