    Ep175 Perfect is the enemy of done, with Andrew Barrett

    Ep175 Perfect is the enemy of done, with Andrew Barrett

    Three times this week, I have come across this challenge in health and safety leaders. 
     
    Competent, intelligent, motivated health and safety leaders who want to make change. 
     
    Who hold back, are held back, from taking the next step, making the next intention a reality, for the same reason. 
     
    The words are different, but the cause is the same.

    Ep172: Psych health and safety in the spotlight, with Jason van Schie

    Today I'm chatting with Jason van Schie, organisation psychologist, founder of FlourishDX and co-host of the Psych Health and Safety podcast. 
    Psych health and safety is a professional domain most of us need to develop, obviously recognising that we aren't pretending to be psychologists.  So it ticks the 'need for growth' box we have in our mission.  And, as for drastic improvements in health and safety, is there any doubt in your mind that psych health and safety needs drastic improvement?

    Ep 171: What learning looks & sounds like everyday, with Tim Fitch

    Ep 171: What learning looks & sounds like everyday, with Tim Fitch

    This is an awesome conversation.  Real stories and experiences from a frontline HSE professional who is still learning with more than a decade's worth of it under his belt.  We covered a lot, I learned a lot! None of this was planned, all Tim and I talked about before recording was just to share his story.  Stick around for the takeaways at the end because this minimally planned and wide ranging conversation percolated some amazingly clear insights for us all.
