This weeks research from the Oxford Review

image_pdfimage_print

This week our members got the following research briefings:

  • A fascinating study that looked at teams from a game theory perspective and sheds some interesting light about the difference between teams and groups. I have already used this paper to spark a very useful conversation about team work in a community of practice I run.
  • A briefing about an really interesting and practical study about the effect of optimism on PTSD and depression. However when you dig into it there are also some very useful lessons for organisations and managing people including some rather counter-intuitive but really powerful methods for improving optimism in the workplace.

Members also got a very useful and practical info-graphic about leading with dignity and how to develop dignity in the workplace. Within 10 minutes of me sending this info-graphic out to our members I got this email from Jim Gibson who is the National Operations Director for a global company:

Hi David
I hope you are well.
Bloody excellent infographic which I have  shared across the business.
Thank you
Jim
