My Pocket Psych: The Psychology of the Workplace

By Dr. Richard A. MacKinnon

Each episode of 'My Pocket Psych' focuses on aspects of work that can sometimes cause us problems, explain why that’s the case and offer some advice on what you can do about it. We’ll highlight the areas of working life where you can make a positive change. We want to help you move from ‘surviving’ work to thriving at work! We'll avoid fads and nonsense that’s spread on the internet. And we all know there's a lot of both out there. We’ll minimise the psycho-babble. We'll involve the experts and we'll share it all with you in a sensible and accessible way. 'My Pocket Psych' is brought to you by WorkLifePsych Ltd, experts in people development. The show is hosted by Dr. Richard MacKinnon, managing director of WorkLifePsych and Pilar Orti.
