Need an expert opinion on the psychology of careers?

We can provide expert advice and opinion for features, news stories and Q&A sessions.

 

Topics we can cover include: career disengagement and stuckness, career change, meaning and fulfilment at work, ways to thrive in the workplace in the 21st century and the psychology of career transformation.

We also have an extensive case study list of clients who have made successful career changes or improved their performance at work through psychology.

We are active in research and are able to show how a single psychological factor – psychological flexibility – can help people change careers, improve careers and perform better at work.

See for example our articles for Guardian Careers (Five Steps to Beating Career Paralysis) and Excellence Reporter (What is the Meaning of Life?).

If this sounds helpful and you would like to talk to one of our team, please email info@thecareerpsychologist.com.

    What Senator Maxine Waters Can Teach Us About Career Change

    You may have seen the video of US Senator Maxine Waters, staunchly and assertively repeating the phrase, ‘reclaiming my time…. reclaiming my time’.

    In US senate committees, each senator has a certain amount of time to ask questions. If the person they are interrogating, wastes that time, perhaps by talking about something irrelevant, then the senator can ‘reclaim’ the time, which is what Senator Waters did.

    Career Change is A Game of Inches

    Took my little daughter to the athletics, and we watched the mighty Usain Bolt in the 4 x 100m heats (though my daughter was far more interested in Hero the Hedgehog).  We then cheered the British team on to qualify, before – incredibly – they snatched gold in the final this evening, winning by 0.05 seconds.

    That’s half a second over 400 metres, shared between 4 people.  With such tiny margins I always think of this speech by Al Pacino in Any Given Sunday, which one of our brilliant clients first put me onto.
