Gene Moyle is a sport and exercise psychologist at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Moyle currently holds the position of the Head of the Dance Department at QUT Creative Industries. You can learn more about what she does from this video.
Moyle, a Brisbane-based psychologist and former professional dancer, is typical of a new breed of practitioner working seamlessly across several performance domains including sport, performing arts, and big business. Gene divides her time between delivering cognitive-behavioural safety programmes in far flung parts of the country for the mining and resource industry, acting as Psychology Coordinator for the Queensland Academy of Sport, home to many of the world’s premier athletes, teaching performance psychology to ballet and contemporary dancers, and supporting two of Australia’s Winter Olympic sports. She sees the common thread in these varied activities as “helping the individuals, groups and organisations concerned to work towards becoming the highest versions of themselves that they can be”.
Of the individuals to whom she provides support in the industrial world, Gene says “Whatever role they play, be it as manager or just an average guy, their challenge is to be the best they possibly can. This might involve organisational, cultural and personal change, managing processes better, and working towards outcome goals via process goals. There is always an element of competition, be it between different managers and sites for production targets, between the organisation that I work for and their main rivals, or simply within the individuals concerned to establish personal progress.”
