About the author

Dorothy Ann Spry MSc, is an Organisational Psychologist and the Managing Director of True North Leaders, a psychological insights consultancy consisting of a team of Organisational, Health, and Consumer Psychologists. All of our psychologists are qualified to British Psychological Society standards, and are specifically trained to work within organisational settings.  

Dorothy has actively been involved in the development of a suite of organisational climate surveys called Image Pro (Marlow and Spry 2016), which provides an organisation with a “temperature reading”. This establishes the likely causes of, amongst other symptoms, poor productivity, low morale and increases in staff turnover. The surveys uncover the hidden drivers of poorly adjusted organisational behaviour such as bullying, toxic leadership behaviours, gender, age and racial stereotyping, and other antisocial, anti-team building behaviours.

She has authored numerous business management books and research articles on topics such as: Psychometric Testing; Emotional Intelligence; Anger Management and Authentic Leadership coaching. In 2007, she won the UK national training award for her contribution towards learning and development interventions within organisational settings.
