Well produced

Really great podcast, professionally made. The best thing is actually that those people you admire also have issues at work, so it gives you the feeling that you’re not the only one to feel challenged at times.
Best regards Joan, Denmark

Clever, helpful and funny

Helps you to reflect on so many levels of your work life and personal issues. I may hear it once more just to remember the lessons better. Have already told my boss that she should hear it.

Worklife is about learning.

Worklife is a very inspirational podcast and one that brings in topics that are difficult to talk about and even more difficult to implement in ones organization. But it gives you a vision and a plan for learning.
