I speak with Dr Fiona Leggat and Dr Sean Figgins in this episode.
Fiona is a Research Associate at Kingston and St Georges University London. She completed her MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology at the University of Chichester and her PhD in Applied Health Psychology at St Mary's University. Fiona’s academic interests include co-design, narrative pedagogy, rehabilitation psychology, implementation science and group dynamics.
Sean is a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology and Research Methods at the University of Chichester. Sean’s research focusses on the social psychology of groups in sport and exercise contexts, with a particular focus on leadership and group dynamics. His research has primarily focussed on how leaders inspire groups and individuals, as well as the personal and contextual factors that impact on this process.
We discuss in detail a brilliant paper that Fiona and Sean have written along with Dr Matthew Smith entitled ‘Talented but Disruptive: An Exploration of Problematic Players in Sports Teams.
