Published research is the cornerstone of everything we do at Real World Group. Fundamentally, we exist to conduct and translate well-designed studies of how leadership influences performance into practical, real-world application.

We have a dedicated Research Team of experienced psychologists and our Founding Director, Professor Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe, remains active in contributing to our thought leadership.

Our research over the past 15 years has built on our foundational Engaging Leadership study to produce our uniquely valid and reliable diagnostic tools. We also conduct new research all of the time, both commissioned and self-funded.

There are various ways in which we assist organisations to better understand their performance and their sector through bespoke research studies.

We have built a strong reputation for Thought Leadership, and regularly publish in peer-reviewed and trade journals, as well as in academic and practitioner books. Key areas of expertise of research into practice are:

  • Leadership
  • Team working
  • Organisational Culture
  • Governance
  • Diversity and Inclusion.
