How’s Work at the Moment? That’s one of the first questions I ask everyone! We all work. In this podcast I explore how to make sense of work, how to find a way of working well and living well. We explore everything to do with our working lives, starting with how do we find our purpose, how do make sense of our organisations and what is the Great Resignation? I am sometimes joined by a ‘studio audience’ and also enjoy conversations with others also trying to make sense of work. Got a question you’d like me to answer?
