Today we're chatting to Caroline Gourlay, an experienced business psychologist and founder of Bath-based Caroline Gourlay Consulting. Contact or ask Caroline a question on Twitter at @carolinegourlay.

Caroline tells us about:

  • Whether people are predisposed to a career of  'depth' or 'breadth'
  • The extent to which people need structure to guide their thinking
  • The issue of 'complexity' in business - and how this links in with the Peter Principle
  • The role of HR in educating people

...and more. So grab your hot drink and tune in now.
