Tracey Camilleri (1980, English) publishes The Social Brain: The Psychology of Successful Groups
Along with Samantha Rockey and Robin Dunbar, Exeter alumna Tracey Camilleri (1980, English) has recently published The Social Brain: The Psychology of Successful Groups, a primer on the coalescence of evolutionary and business management. Rockey, Dunbar, and Camilleri are experts in their respective fields, with Camilleri being an Associate Fellow at Oxford’s Saïd Business School and the co-founder, with Rockey, of London-based leadership and development consultancy Thompson Harrison. At Saïd, Camilleri directed the flagship Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme from 2012 to 2022.
The Social Brain: The Psychology of Successful Groups discusses the keys to building effective teams. The authors explain what group sizes work according to the task at hand, as well as how to diffuse tensions and encourage cooperation. The book delves into how ‘social brains’ function, and thus how human groups can best work together.
Penguin Press released The Social Brain on 23 February. Click here to order a copy.
