Episode 8: An Interview with Dr Susan Kahn, resilience expert and author of 'Bounce Back'

What is resilience? How do we define it? How does it manifest itself? Can we build up our resilience 'muscle' so that we can cope with difficulties, adversities or unexpected changes and still be able to function, especially in the workplace? In this episode of POW, the Psychology of Work podcast, we speak to Dr Susan Kahn, business psychologist, consultant, coach, mediator and author of the new book: 'Bounce Back: How to Fail Fast and Be Resilient at Work'. Dr Kahn explains how a resilience mindset is essential to being able to bounce back and return to form after experiencing challenging situations. She also offers some techniques that we can start using immediately on our own resilience journeys.

Episode 6: Personality and Risk - An Interview with Geoff Trickey

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to love taking risks, whilst others shy away from it? In this episode of POW, the Psychology of Work podcast, Geoff Trickey (CEO of Psychological Consultancy Ltd) talks about the link between risk and personality. Could uncovering your staff’s risk type could help you to understand how each individual employee perceives, reacts and manages themselves in risky situations? And could this knowledge help employers predict how their staff make decisions? What does that mean for teams? Is our appetite for risk innate, or learned?

In this episode you can hear an exclusive interview with Professor Peter Saville that ABP board members Richard Chataway and Gab Gallassi conducted at last year's ABP conference.

Episode 1: The Psychology of the Gig Economy

You will have almost certainly bought from Amazon. You may have travelled in an Uber taxi. You, or someone you know, may rely on home help from a carer. But have you ever considered what it's really like to work in one of those jobs, as part of the so-called gig economy? A job where you may be on a zero hours contract, with no guarantee of work one day to the next, and without the same safety and security provided by a traditional full time job. If you are a business psychologist you may be an independent freelancer and enjoy the flexibility of that lifestyle. But does the gig economy actually benefit the employee - or the employer? In this episode, we explore this new career deal, the rise of the gig economy and what this means in psychological terms for businesses and individuals. The 'New Career Deal' was our theme for the 2018 ABP conference and in this podcast you'll hear exclusive interviews with two of our keynote speakers. One is Matthew Taylor, the senior policy advisor and...
