In podcast 3, we will begin our exploration of Cognitive Fitness with Fiona Beddoes-Jones, Ph.D. Fiona has over 35 years of experience in the field of Cognitive Fitness, exploring how to support leaders to think more effectively; what she calls thinking in the right ways at the right time.
Fiona has worked with a wide range of leaders and consultants in the UK with a variety of cognitive tools she has developed including Thinking Styles, a psychometric test that measures your preference for 26 different ways we think. Over the last 25 years, her research has also focused on defining Authentic Leadership and the development of a unique 360 degree tool that gets at the essence of authentic leadership skills. Since we found Fiona’s interview to be jam packed with great information, we decided to divide it into 2 parts. This is the first part of her interview.
