    Ep 75. Developing your Superpower (ft. Zoe Chance)

    Welcome to the Season 3 finale of the Questioning Behaviour podcast. This week we are joined by the charming Zoe Chance (Associate Professor of Marketing at Yale School of Management) to discuss her new book "Influence is Your Superpower". In this episode, we unpick why it can be difficult to be influential when it comes to advocating for yourself versus others, the power of the enthusiastic "no!", and reveal which chapter of Zoe's book was the most challenging to write.

    Ep 73. Cybercology (ft. Carolyn Freeman)

    In this episode of the QB pod, Sarah and Merle meet Carolyn Freeman to talk about how technology affects the way we think, act, work – also known as the field of “Cybercology”. We discuss how working from home and our dependence on technology affect how we work. Also, Caroyln talks us through the process of “de-slaving” from technology and offers some great tips and tricks to make technology work for us (and not the other way around…)
