Book A Call With Wendy

S1E9 The Power of Collaborating with big companies for positive workplace change.

In Episode Nine of the Inspiring Psychologists podcast, host Wendy Kendall discusses the power of collaboration and the role of business psychologists in shaping the future of private practice. She is joined by her colleagues Michelle Minnikin and Rebecca Longman, both business psychologists, for an insightful conversation.

Wendy is excited to have her occupational psychology colleagues on the show, as they have been focusing on clinical and counseling psychologists in previous episodes. Michelle and Rebecca share their journeys and evolutions in private practice. Michelle talks about feeling out of place in traditional work environments and the struggle to create a psychology practice that truly represents her. She found inspiration in the book "Be More Pirate" and with her partner, James, rebranded their company as Work Pirates, allowing them to be more authentic, challenging, and provocative in their approach.

Rebecca also reflects on her career path, freelancing for big companies and eventually finding her role as a consultant in leadership development and training at Mind Gym. She emphasises the importance of individuals taking ownership of their careers and making choices to break free from the control of work. Rebecca's book, "Let's Love to Work," explores this idea.

Discover how these innovative practitioners have forged impactful partnerships with corporations, creating waves of positive change within the workplace. We'll explore the concept of 'positive disruption' and discuss transcending the 'do good' paradigm, particularly for women in leadership roles.

This episode is a must-listen for psychologists looking to shape a private practice that reaches beyond individual clients to impact larger organisations and create lasting, systemic change.
