Leadership through the Lens
Leadership has been a hot topic in business psychology for decades and is essential for understanding the success of an organisation. It is constantly evolving as the demands of organisations change, often leaving many feeling overwhelmed with what is best practice. Our talk will feature a fantastic line up of speakers - Gillian Hyde from CEx PCL Consulting, Scott Litchenstein from University of Birmingham and Dr Karen Blakely from University of Winchester - and will be chaired by Jonathan Passmore, facilitating the conversation from a consulting and research perspective.
By attending this event you will also receive a free copy of Business Psychology in Action, published in 2015, whose authors include Gillian, Scott and Karen, and we’ll also be offering the opportunity to get your copy signed by the speakers after the session.
This session is ideal for anyone interested in advancing the understanding of leadership and its application.
