PODCAST

Slice of PIE

Pete Jackson

What is a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE)? And what does it look like across the worlds of sport, business, the military, education, the performing arts and many other performance fields? With 14 years working in marketing strategy for blue chip companies and 6 years training towards Sports and Performance Psychology chartership, I am seeking to find what each domain can learn from the other. To do so, I'm speaking to high performance experts, psychologists and those at the forefront of leadership, teamwork and organisational psychology research.#SliceofPIEWebsite: https://www.petejackson.co.uk/
Social Identity (Part Two!) - Dr Matt Slater & Chris Hartley
Join me for the second in a two-parter we recorded last year - a conversation about Social Identity.  In fact, with the Euros in full swing, this is a great time to revisit the first part (here) as well as Gareth Southgate's recent interview on the High Performance Podcast (here). Dr. Matt Slater from Staffordshire University and Chris Hartley from the University of Stirling spend a lot of time thinking about groups, identity and leadership.Dr. Matt Slater is Associate Professor of Sport & Exercise Psychology at Staffordshire University, a chartered Psychologist and an active researcher with interests in the psychology of leadership and team functioning in performance contexts. He is also the Author of the book ‘Togetherness: How to Build a Winning Team’, published in 2019.Chris Hartley is also a chartered and HCPC registered practitioner in sport and exercise psychology, and a Lecturer in sport psychology at the University of Stirling (Scotland, UK). His PHD research adopted a social identity theory perspective, where he aimed to understand how a social identity and the self-categorisation process underpins the provision and receipt of social support. Chris has also previously worked in performance academies, University Scholarship programmes, and consulted with several sport NGBs and a range of individual clients. He’s helped organise the 2nd International Conference on Social Identity in Sport (ICSIS) which took place in June 2019 in Stirling.Matt and Chris join me for the SECOND part of the first ever group discussion on Slice of PIE - and we talk about identity, leadership, the transience of groups and the powerful wellness impacts of social groups amongst many other topics.This is Part 2 of the discussion so make sure to check out Part 1 when you can.You can find more about Matt and Chris here:Dr Matt Slaterhttps://twitter.com/DrMattSlaterhttps://www.researchgate.net/profile/Matthew_Slater3Matt's book:https://www.bennionkearny.com/book/togetherness-how-to-build-a-winning-team-book-ebook-matt-slater/Chris Hartleyhttps://twitter.com/DrChrisHartleyhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-hartley-4981aa102/The New Psychology of Sport & Exercise:https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/the-new-psychology-of-sport-and-exercise/book265588#contents

Working in elite football & rugby - Joe DixonACT in sport psychology - Jo DaviesHigh performance in eSports - Ismael PedrazaThe long win - Cath Bishop
In this episode I speak to Cath Bishop. A speaker, consultant, executive coach and author on developing success in leadership. Cath is also a former diplomat and former elite rower for Great Britain, representing at 3 Olympic games, achieving World Champion status twice as well as an Olympic Silver Medal in partnership with Dame Katherine Grainger in the coxless pair in Athens.A cursory glance at Cath’s Wikipedia or LinkedIn might give you the impression of one word… SUCCESS. Yet it’s the notion of what is defined as success which sits at the heart of her new book The Long Win. Is success the outcome or the journey towards it? Is it the medals and quarterly targets or the skills and growth you gain along the way? And why is our culture obsessed with winning?I thoroughly enjoyed interviewing Cath and getting deeper into some of the topics within the book. If you are interested I’ve left a link to the book in the description below, along with a host of other books I've read and have been recommended in the world of psychology, organisation culture, wellbeing and performance.In our conversation we jump straight into the themes from the book and the implications for building psychologically informed environments. We only lightly touch upon Cath's own Olympic and athletic journey, but if you’d like to find out more I’d invite you to listen to Cath's interviews with Simon Mundie on Don’t Tell Me the Score and Steve Ingham on The Supporting Champions podcast to learn more.

Hannah Stoyel is a HCPC registered Sport & Exercise Psychologist, and the founder of Optimise Potential, a sport psychology consultancy based in London. She wears many hats: As well as doing her PHD at University College London looking at athletes and eating disorders -  She is also the lead sport psychologist for Swim England, she works as a sport psychology consultant for Millfield school, delivers sport psychology content for UK Athletics, and is a Sport Psychologist for the Reading FC Academy. Pretty impressive resume. In my conversation with Hannah her passion for all things psychology is evident, in any age any competitive level or any sport, however I was particularly struck by her enthusiasm for developing young people and her insights in to how elite academies, NGB pathways, parents, coaches and other support staff can support our young athletes as they navigate the whirlwind rollercoaster of childhood, puberty, adolescence and young adulthood. Therefore if you’re a coach, parent, support staff or even a young athlete this episode will be particularly interesting for you.You can find Hannah here:Consultancy website:https://www.optimisepotentialsport.com/Consultancy social media:https://twitter.com/OP_Sport_Psychhttps://www.instagram.com/optimise_potential/Personal social media:https://twitter.com/HStoyelhttps://www.instagram.com/hannahstoyel/British Swimming - Optimal Athlete Development Framework (OADF):https://docs.google.com/file/d/1Usd_O8ghC0q8LCcTQhkIhnQuVwlRY1pn/view?rm=minimal
