Both Brock and David are registered psychologists with a keen interest in understanding why people do what they do. Their research and applied experience combines to create innovative and practical insights into the motivations, cognitive biases, psychosocial factors and unconscious influences that govern human behaviour.
Both are keenly aware of the complexities and pressures that people face in order to survive in the modern world, and believe that personal insight, good communication, and effective decision-making are key to thriving in challenging environments.
Professor Brock Bastian is an internationally acclaimed researcher, author, and speaker who has spent the last 15 years seeking to understand how culture impacts on mental health and ethical decision-making. His work has been regularly featured in outlets such as the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, The Economist and Time Magazine and he is recognised as a thought leader in the fields of Behavioural Ethics and Mental Health.
Awarded for his innovative ideas, Brock’s work has revealed the significant role of contextual,cultural, and interpersonal factors in determining mental health. His work has also revealed how underlying motivations and cognitive biases influence ethical decision-making and how these subtle and often unconscious influences may shape organisations from the bottom up as well as the top down.
In addition to his academic career, Brock has provided consultancy to organisations across Australia on issues such as workplace mental health and workplace culture, and has developed cutting edge programs drawing on the very latest knowledge within psychology. Part of Brock’s passion is to communicate innovative knowledge in away that is accessible, applied, and practical.
David Burroughs is a workplace psychologist who has spent the last decade and half working with major organisations, both in Australia and abroad, in the area of workplace mental health, workplace culture, change management and complex behaviour.
David is renowned as an industry leading workplace mental health strategist, speaker and advisor to executive teams across Australasia, he has been at the forefront of bringing integrated, psychosocially focused approaches to workplace mental health to Australia. David prefers to see himself as a pragmatist, or a ‘commonsense psychologist’ who likes to get beneath the symptoms and drill down to the core of issues that affect everyday people in the workplace.
David has always had a passion for the addressing workplace issues before the point of crisis. Amid the chaos of our current world, his recent focus is helping people develop the confidence and capabilities required to navigate our increasingly complex and dynamic workplace environments.
