The Science behind the podcast

The podcast and all of my work is grounded in Contextual Behavioural Science. This is an approach dedicated to the alleviation of human suffering and the advancement of human well-being through research and practice. 

My mission is to make this behavioural science accessible, practical and fun for adults in the workplace. Many organisations talk about their people being their most valuable resource. I embody that principle by delivering skills training and coaching that respects the whole person - not just the person in the workplace.

Adaptability, well-being and awareness at work?

All of my bespoke interventions are based on a foundation that has been shown to significantly increase psychological well-being and behavioural flexibility. These research findings have been published in top ranked academic journals. 

The processes that underpin the podcast and my work reflect the complexity and fluidity of the world today.

In working with psychological flexibility we focus on a set of processes. We're aiming to cultivate:
  • an ability to notice what's going on. That is, what's going on around us, in our head and also how we're showing up in the world;
  • an exploration of what's important in our work and life - and how to use these qualities that matter to us as a behavioural guide;
  • ways to skilfully relate to the content generated by our minds. Our minds generate loads of thoughts, emotions, memories and urges. Sometimes these can hijack our behaviour and stop us being who we want to be. By relating differently to this content - we can free ourselves to focus on what matters.
In my research role at City, University of London, I works alongside Dr Paul Flaxman, Reader in Organisational Psychology. Over the last few years, we have redesigned and redeveloped a training protocol designed to enhance psychological well-being and flexibility in the workplace. 

This is important because psychological well-being has been shown to be the most effective predictor of performance, absence and turnover at work.
