Slice of PIE

Slice of PIE

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. #SliceofPIE
