Dr Rachel Lilley combines extensive academic research with many years practical experience working with teams and senior leaders to offer unique and practical insights into attention, emotions, consciousness and decision making. She has particular expertise in behaviour change related to sustainability, climate change and community engagement as well as extensive academic and personal experience of using mindfulness to develop self and other awareness and gain insight.
Predicting Mind works with organisations to improve collaboration, decision making, innovation and creativity. This work, led by Rachel, helps address implicit and cognitive bias and builds individual, group and system capacities for dealing with complexity and implementing internal and external behaviour change. Delivered through tailored training programmes the work of Predicting Mind also improves well being and creates a connected workplace where people better understand (and enjoy) their work feeling enabled to deal with uncertainty, risk and diverse stakeholders.
“Research at Aberystwyth University has used a radical combination of training in mindfulness and behavioural insights to help us see how public servants can become more effective leaders, better decision-makers, and provide better advice. And I want to see all of these insights contribute to the kind of leadership I want to see in our public services in Wales”
