Psychology has so many applications and implications at work, and my main interests lie in trying to make work a better place to be, and particularly understanding why efforts to improve things might not always turn out the way they were intended.
I also have an interest in ‘mindset’; how the simple beliefs we hold about ourselves can affect how we perceive and respond to learning situations.
