Why do we say "yes" to things we later regret, or struggle to share early drafts of our work with collaborators? Why we get upset when colleagues ask for help and then don't follow our advice? Are you really driven by a desire to help others, or are you seeking external validation? Why do we need to make sure we've got everything right - can you have a healthy level of perfectionism or are you expressing a deeper need to "be right"? This week, Mark explores some of the common ways in which researchers experience people-pleasing and perfectionism, and how you can harness these challenges to learn more about yourself and the decisions you make. In so doing, Mark argues, it is possible to regain control of your work-life balance and start making decisions that make time for the most important things in your career and life. The episode ends with an excerpt from his new book, Impact Culture, available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

In this episode, Mark considers the difference between influential versus manipulative impact, and shares insights and practical tips that can help you identify early warning signs that you might be about to cross a line and say or do something you might later regret. He builds on previous episodes about leadership for impact and his chapter on empathic leadership in his new book, Impact Culture.Read the blog version of today's episode hereImpact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

This week, Mark interviews Dr Katerina Cidlinska from the Institute of Psychology at the Czech Academy of Sciences about research she conducted with Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who left academia. Her work identifies four trajectories and impact could be part of the problem as well as part of the solution. There were unique challenges for women and researchers in STEM subjects, and Katerina now runs workshops to help ECRs think about how they can balance the competing demands of their roles, or whether they need to start thinking of an exit strategy.Download her full paper here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fs7jdbzawoyzet4/Cidlinska_et_al-2022-Higher_Education.pdf?dl=0Impact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

Mark interviews Saskia Gent (Insights for Impact) and Jennifer Locket and Dawn Ashby (Plymouth Marine Laboratory) to learn from research that reviewed over 70 impact strategies from around the world. The research suggested there are just two types of impact strategy to choose from - enabling impact and achieving impact strategies. Mark discusses the paper with Saskia before interviewing Jen and Dawn about how they developed their strategy, which features as an example of good practice in the paper.

This week, Mark concludes his series on empathic leadership for impact by considering evidence from studies of expert negotiators that suggests empathic leaders can be significantly more influential. As he revises the empathic leadership model to move beyond service, he suggests that the third and final pillar of empathic leadership is about our ability to both influence and serve others by understanding their positions and needs more deeply.Impact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

In this episode, Mark discusses how leaders that want to facilitate impact need to cultivate bridging expertise to bridge ideas and networks, bringing people and solutions together to make a difference.

In this episode, Mark discusses how leaders need to have a deep understanding of their impact, to be authentic and therefore be able to connect empathically with their teams, drawing people to impact.

In this episode, Mark looks at a range of leadership models and discusses the sort of leadership needed to drive impact, drawing on his new book, Impact Culture. He presents a new leadership model, empathic leadership, based on purpose, bridging expertise and service, and discusses the tools and approaches of an empathic leader, and how this can inspire impact.Read the blog version of today's episode hereImpact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

This week, Mark interviews Dr Ged Hall about an innovative rolling 3 month programme for researchers to build skills and community around impact, giving them permission, accountability and support to achieve impacts that align with their values, whether or not they are valued by funders or governments. The programme arose as a direct response to the perception that the impact culture at University of Leeds had been shaped too much by the Research Excellence Framework. It uses peer to peer support and tutor input to embed an approach to impact that is heavily influenced by Theory of Change tools. This approach is built on, institutionally, as academic Schools are supported to develop ‘bottom-up’ impact outcomes and strategies that aim to deliver those outcomes.Join Mark and Ged for a training session on the 25th of April to learn more about what University of Leeds is doing in this space, and find out more from the Impact Culture book about how to motivate researchers to engage with impact on their own terms: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-to-motivate-researchers-to-engage-with-impact-on-their-own-terms-tickets-233494066037Impact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

Following his Reading Group appearance earlier this month, I'm interviewing Professor Jonathan Grant about his new book, The New Power University. He argues argues that universities must embrace “new power” values that focus on participation, networked governance and transparency, to put social responsibility at the core of the academic mission. I ask him how he tried to put what he wrote into practice when he was a Vice Principle at Kings College London, and discuss some of his more controversial ideas, including the idea that blue-skies research should be deprioritised, universities should take strong stances on controversial issues and celebrity researchers should give up tenure so early career researchers can get long-term positions.Get your copy of The New Power University now.Follow Mark at @fasttrackimpact and @profmarkreed or on LinkedIn.Impact Culture is available now, as a hardback, e-book and audio book: https://www.fasttrackimpact.com/books.

In the first of four episodes that include audio chapters from his new book, Impact Culture, Mark introduces the first of four components of a healthy impact culture: rigorous, ethical and action-oriented research. In the introduction, he discusses some of the common ethical traps researchers inadvertently fall into when attempting to generate impact from their research. In the chapter that follows, he uses the poet John Keats' creative process to explain how researchers can generate original ideas that can solve real-world problems, and the episode concludes with practical ideas to transform your research so it can underpin impact.Follow Mark at @fasttrackimpact and @profmarkreed or on LinkedIn.Impact Culture is released as a paperback, e-book and audio book on 25th March 2022.

In this episode, Mark delves into some of the assumptions and world views that can prevent us doing research that is genuinely coproductive. He draws on a realisation that some of his own early work was far from coproductive, and instead could be characterised as "helicopter research" that included elements of white centering and epistemic racism. He also draws inspiration from work with local communities in the UK by University of Staffordshire's Creative Communities Unit, as an example of what is possible when the boundaries between researchers and stakeholders are dissolved.Trigger warning: this episode contains discussion of racism that some listeners may find upsetting.Follow Mark at @fasttrackimpact and @profmarkreed or on LinkedIn.Impact Culture is released as a paperback, e-book and audio book on 25th March 2022.
