Fuschia Sirois is a professor at Durham University’s Department of Psychology. She is particularly interested in how procrastination, perfectionism, loneliness and traits linked to negative mood adversely affect health, and the qualities that play a role in improving well-being.

Estimates suggest that anywhere between 15% and 25% of the adult population procrastinate regularly. So what this means is that about one in five members of your team are going to be prone to procrastination.

Social network brokerage means connecting across people who are otherwise disconnected and looking for those ideas that are important in organisational life as well as in everyday life.
