What impact has psychology had on L&D?

Most of us working in L&D will have come across pop psychology in one form or another, but what are the actual psychological insights that can guide our practice? On this week’s episode of the GoodPractice Podcast, Sukh Pabial joins Owen Ferguson and Ross Garner to share his thoughts on psychology and behavioural economics.
