Dr Annie Gascoyne - Part 2

Season 3 Episode 26

Or...all about Organisational Flexibility.
I’m starting with a quote from Walt Whitman today –

“I am large, I contain multitudes."

I think this quote encapsulates the complexity of both organisations AND the people within them

Here's part 2 of my conversation with Dr Annie Gascoyne. In part one we heard about Annie’s fascinating career history, how she’s worked in radically different organisations and she talked about pivotal moments, like going back to Uni and how she found herself in the surprising position of embarking upon a PhD.

In this episode we’re diving into that same PhD research - you’ll hear Annie introduce and expand on organisational flexibility as a concept and its component processes – which I think is highly relevant in these extraordinary times. I think you’ll find that organisational flexibility provides a useful and practical lens to consider the challenges that all organisations face.  

In the shownotes you'll find two useful diagrams, one representing psychological flexibility and the other, organisational flexibility.

Dr Annie Gascoyne - Part 1

Season 3 Episode 25

Today's episode is part one of my conversation with Dr Annie Gascoyne. Annie’s PhD research explored psychological flexibility AND organisational flexibility and we’ll explore that in much more detail in next week's episode. In this episode we hear about Annie’s fascinating career history, it’s varied and spans radically different organisations, she talks about pivotal moments, like going back to Uni and how she found herself in the surprising position of embarking upon a PhD. 

Annie is an organisational psychologist and coach who uses behavioural science to equip people and organisations with skills to achieve their aims, with a greater sense of wellbeing, meaning and purpose.

Annie has over 20 years of experience across a wide range of organisations from multinational corporations through to entrepreneurial start-ups, and from financial services to charities. She has worked as an external consultant and coach, and as an internal manager of people, projects, operations and change. 

Annie’s relatively recent transition to organisational psychology was driven by her desire to help organisations and their people to work together more successfully and healthily. Her doctoral thesis, which researched organisational and psychological flexibility, provides her practice with a leading-edge, evidence-based perspective for improving our world of work.
She is also a visiting lecturer at the Institute of Management Studies (IMS), Goldsmiths University of London, teaching Organisational Behaviour & Health and Assessment & Selection courses on the MSc Occupational Psychology programme.
