Ep 031: Thinking ahead to 2019
Welcome to another episode of ‘My Pocket Psych’. This time, we look at the challenges with making New Year’s resolutions given our innate preference for comfort and stability.
We also discuss what productivity could look like in a variety of roles and look ahead to workplace psychology themes for 2019, in the second part of our interview with Nicky Hemmings. You can catch the first part of this interview in our previous episode.
