Our current research is in character development. We have worked alongside academics such as Carol Dweck (Stanford University), Rachel Sykes & Jeremy Frith (Frith-Sykes Ltd). Jon is based at Plymouth University lecturing in Psychology and supervising sport psychology research projects. Richard is a senior lecturer based at Winchester University. Through our research, we are able to teach ways to train “Grit”. These methods are relevant for any setting outside of sport, such as education, medical, and government.
