Research

Research

We love tried and tested but we're always looking for better. We don't accept that there's a single way of seeing things or that anyone has all the answers, so we love challenging preconceptions and exploring new ideas.

 

Over the years our research has shaped how organisations approach engagement and work-related well-being. In 2020 at the very start of the coronavirus pandemic, we recognised that the landscape in which organisations operate had changed forever; our ensuing research identifies the factors that most contribute to survival in a hypercompetitive market or during a crisis.

 

Our ideas integrate  many years of research by academics and practitioners  and use recent advances in the fields of psychology and neuroscience to help explain how people really think and behave in the workplace.

Our research isn't just academic theory; we've developed practical models and tools to translate the learning into demonstrable results.

Organisational Agility

Our latest research, published in April 2021, explains how cognitive diversity, along with three other psychological factors, contributes to Collective Intelligence which, when combined with Adaptive Innovation processes forms the basis of Organisational Agility.

We show how Organisational Agility is a key determinant of long term sustainability and success in a hyper-competitive market, and is the single most important factor in surviving an unexpected event such as the coronavirus pandemic.

This paper helps explain what motivates people most, especially during times of extreme challenge or where they personally have something significant at risk. The research was conducted with more than a thousand soldiers returning from active service in Afghanistan.
