We’re delighted to be sharing a platform with Dr Joanna Wilde on 3rd June at the British Psychological Society’s training centre in London. We are running a CPD-accredited workshop for practitioners, to demonstrate a practical, evidence-based approach to human management and leadership.
It’s an interactive event for leaders, psychologists and organisational design and development specialists. It shows how to use the positive deviance approach to improve productivity, engagement and well-being in organisations. Click here for the programme, and to book directly with the BPS.
What you will learn about human management
Positive deviance underpins the Hidden Insights way of working. It is an inclusive problem-solving method that is based on group coaching. It engages people at all levels in solving their own challenges quickly and within existing systems and resources. It uncovers and builds on what works and optimises relationships with colleagues, customers and stakeholders. It’s a very humane and constructive way of working – yet challenges poor practice and negative beliefs.
Joanna connects the approach back to psychological theory. We’ll be featuring UK case studies run by Hidden Insights, other global examples and introducing some useful group discovery and problem-solving techniques.
