Research Interests

Professor Frank Bond is the Director of the Institute of Management Studies and was previously Head of the Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London. His research and consultancy focus on identifying and enhancing the organisational and psychological factors that determine work effectiveness (e.g., productivity, innovation), leadership skills, and employee health (e.g., mental/physical health). Currently, he is developing methods to assess psychological processes, such as psychological flexibility (or psychological acceptance), in the workplace. He is also developing and testing theory-driven interventions for improving work-related productivity and health (e.g., through leadership training).

Frank has published widely in the fields of applied psychology and organisational behaviour, and his research has been funded by charities, industry, government, and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Frank has consulted with a wide-range of organisations, for example, to enhance leadership skills in investment bankers and innovation potential at the BBC. He is a trustee of the European Association of Occupational Health Psychology and was recently President of the Association of Contextual Behavioural Sciences. Frank is currently on the editorial boards of a number of academic journals, including Work & Stress.
