"Most common organisational issues could be solved if we had a better understanding of how individuals and groups operate, and of how those forces impact upon organisations"

Author, journalist and researcher Sarah Niblock is Chief Executive of the UKCP, the country's leading body for research, innovation, education and regulation working to advance psychotherapies for the benefit of all. She tells AICPA & CIMA's Kymberley McAdam about the psychotherapist's message of hope and its relevance as a powerful path to organisational transformation for 21st Century business-leaders.



  • What needs to change in the way senior management balances wellbeing with workplace efficiency?
  • How does the pace of change today really impact on modern business executives?
  • What are the gaps in the ways they educate themselves professionally?
  • How do the 19th-century behavioural theories of Freud & co. still offer such powerful potential in the 21st-century workplace?
  • What are the mistakes that corporates make when training and enabling their employees for the realities of today's high-tech, high-efficiency jobs?
