Another year, and another Slice of PIE first.
We get to speak to Niels Feddersen, Associate Professor at the Norwegian School of Sport Science - and we get to speak to him at two points in time ! First in 2020, during his move from Denmark to Norway, and then again in 2023 - where we have a conversation and reflection on the first conversation ! I can't take credit, it was Niels' idea...
We talk about some of his important research studying sporting organisations and their cultures, and slingshot into multiple interesting threads concerning values, societal changes, the tipping point for speaking up, social bubbles and organisational consensus on what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour - among many other topics.
