For our featured blog this week, we caught up with Dani Bacon and Garin Rouch about their new ‘distinction podcast’ series, where they are aiming to bridge the gap between academic research and management practice. The series is based on leadership and remote working and this particular podcast is on ‘optimising team performance’.
Dani was Director of People and Business services at Investors in People, but this year has set up her own consultancy business to help organisations take a more strategic approach with their people and to make their organisations more effective and human.
Garin is an organisation development consultant, he’s been running his own practice for 10 years, but has been an OD consultant for 15 years.
There are a lot of myths around leadership practice. But there is also an enormous amount of good high-quality academic research that leaders could be using in their day-to-day practice. And that HR professionals could be advising their managers to implement on a day-to-day basis as well.
In this podcast they’re looking at teams, and what leaders can do to maximise performance. Dani and Garin have identified five specific actions that you can take away to apply to your work in optimising team performance.
