Brainstorming: Engaging, or Alienating?
Being part of a brainstorming session can sometimes feel like being on a panel show; you’re forever trying to make a joke, but there’s always someone louder than you who makes the audience laugh first.

Generation Z: Stop Assuming, Start Engaging

In case you haven’t noticed it’s getting very close to election day in the UK. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get into a big political debate here but… what I have noticed in the run up to 8th of June (being a positive psychologist) is the way we often focus on the differences in […]
What’s the point of employee engagement?
Some years ago I worked for a company that had an issue with absenteeism. People were off sick all the time, and it was costing the company a lot of money, not to mention the impact on customer service and general morale around the office… So what was the company’s (well meaning) solution to this […]
Praise for effort, not just performance – The role of mindset in engaging employees
Did you know that praising a child for their intelligence can actually undermine their motivation and subsequent performance? Seems counterintuitive doesn’t it? But a ground-breaking study by psychologist Muller and Dweck in 1998 found just this. In their research they gave 128 students between the ages of 10-12, a series of non-verbal IQ test, consisting […]
Why does employee engagement work? The positive psychology behind engagement
There’s no doubt that employee engagement has come a long way in the last decade. It has moved from a management buzzword to something which is being taken seriously in companies, and seen as a critical element of HR. But although the business case has been well made, and we now have a much […]
