I'm interested in how people and organisations make judgements about themselves and the world around them, and then use those judgements to change (hopefully in a good way). My approach tends to be practical – I’m more interested in what works than grand theory. Some example areas of interest are:

Current projects in varying levels of activity are:

* Leadership, and its impact on performance and well being.
* Workplace dynamics, in particular how work systems, employment systems, and management attitudes interact to create good (or bad) workplaces.
* Worker victimisation/ bullying – my current interest is in the interaction between individual and organisational characteristics that are associated with bullying.

I’m also interested in how alleged bullying is resolved (or not), and what the outcomes are for targets, perpetrators and organisations.
