Nikki is a Professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver in the School of Kinesiology. It is at UBC that Nikki runs the Motor Skills Laboratory where she studies the mechanisms of motor skill learning.

#142 Prof Mark Williams - Anticipation and Decision Making in Sport

The Sport Psych Show

I’m excited to have Prof Mark Williams back on the show for this episode. Mark is one of the world’s leading authorities in sports performance. He completed his PhD in Movement Science with a focus on perceptual cognitive expertise. Mark has worked at various academic institutions including Liverpool John Moores university, University of Sydney, Brunel University London, Florida State, and he is now Professor and Chair of the Department of Health, Kinesiology, and Recreation at the University of Utah.   Mark has come back on to discuss a fascinating book he has co-edited entitled Anticipation and Decision Making in Sport. This is the first book to identify the underlying science behind anticipation and decision making in sport, enhancing our scientific understanding of these phenomena and helping practitioners to develop interventions to facilitate the more rapid acquisition of the perceptual-cognitive skills that underpin these judgements.

50. PI #50: Clare Moore & Mark Williams - the way we work

Jeff Weigh

On this episode I share my interview with Clare Moore (Head of Marketing) and Mark Williams (Chief Product Officer) at People First; a company revolutionising the way we work. On work-life balance; We are all individuals and all learn, develop, grow and think differently. As leaders we should respect that. Balance means something psychologically different for every person. The way we work People know that there is a problem with work and as a result that's why people are gravitating to what People First are doing. We are at our most unproductive at work right now. This leads to disengagement. There has been a lot of research into this area and their mission is to help people find more meaning at work. More tech isn't going to be the answer. Tech becomes the enabler to change the dynamics of the relationship between employee and employer. No job for life anymore The way we work suggests that there isn't going to be a job for life anymore. People First have developed a platform to enable adult conversations to happen. This will allow the person and organisation to stay aligned for a period of time until one or the other decides to change. The research coming out at the moment is pointing towards the 'work' that we do as being important. Therefore, achievements tend to be linked to work rather than people's personal lives. Finding what you're good at and being able to do that 'work' in work is going to be crucial. A 'fit-bit' for work Everything is centred around a conversation. As a result employees are able to 'check in' each day and capture moments of 'flow' similar to keeping a journal. Therefore by having more regular conversations it facilitates better relationships and understanding. Productively and engagement are higher when an individual and organisation are aligned. Find out more Finally if you would like to start a conversation with Clare & Mark, you can find them on Twitter; Clare Mark Alternatively, find out more about Clare & Mark by reading the latest Ignite blog; People First More details can be found on the People First website.
