Hot-off the press, join this online Zoom session to hear two PhD candidates share the highlights of their research.

We have two fantastic presentations to share with you at this online event:

Presentation 1: Have you ever wondered if your leader is a psychopath?

We often think of psychopathy from a negative perspective, but research shows that some psychopathic traits are associated with leadership success. In this session, you’ll learn about the impact of leader psychopathy on employee motivation, performance and well-being.

Madeleine Stapleton

Madeleine is a PhD student at the University of Waikato. Madeleine recognises how important it is to foster a workplace environment where employees can satisfy their needs and feel motivated. When Madeleine is not contributing to her PhD, or working as a research assistant for Auckland University of Technology, she can be found brunching in local cafes and exploring nature trails and hikes around New Zealand.

Presentation 2: Mindfulness at work

Research has proven that practicing mindfulness at work has a beneficial impact on our well-being and levels of distress. However, little is known about exactly how mindfulness works, or why it works. In this session, learn about the specific mindfulness skills that produce the most positive outcomes.

Anja Roemer

Anja is a PhD candidate at the University of Waikato. She researches how and to what extent mindfulness can have a positive impact on well-being and distress. Prior to coming to New Zealand, Anja worked and studied in Germany and South Africa. She has work experience in business consulting focusing on organisational development and change management.
