Tara undertakes studies into the mental resilience of professions that experience particularly high levels of stress. Projects Tara has been involved with include:

  • A study into the mental resilience of journalists with results expected in Q1 of 2017.
  • A study in collaboration with the Corinthia Hotel, London, examining the mental resilience of teams both front and back of house in the fast paced 24-7 hospitality industry. The results of this study will be published in the Summer of 2017.
  • Tara is also co-author of the award-winning book, Neuroscience for Leadership: Harnessing the Brain Gain Advantage. The book uses new evidence that positive leadership can be learned and how by harnessing key competencies and creativity, leaders can make better decisions and improve performance.
  • A research paper with Dr Michael Hurley, Senior Researcher at Imperial College, London on treatment for Parkinson’s Disease.
