The aim of this podcast is for me to arm you, my amazing workplace-casual army, with the weapons needed to combat the potential and perhaps inherent downsides of our chosen lifestyle. Most of us spend at least 40 hours per week at our place of work (47.7 hours is the actual average - even if we only get paid for 37.5 hours). We put time and effort into what our home looks like. We put research into the car we buy or the clothes we wear. Why wouldn’t we put at least that much effort into how we approach our workspace? This podcast will help you optimize, hone and perfect your office habitat so you can truly be a Workplace Hero.
Announcing the Change Academy podcast
After a nearly two year hiatus, I am back with an exciting announcement! I have a new podcast called Change Academy and in this short episode of Workplace Hero, I explain what the new show is all about and play you a snippet from Episode #1 of Change Academy.

How To Self Promote, without being human spam w/ Justin Jackson
I'm going to come right out and say it. The reason I chose the topic of Self Promotion for this episode is that I have something to sell you.
The product is called Weighless and Weighless is a fat loss program. So, as you can probably guess, with the millions on other fat loss programs out there advertising themselves, it is difficult being heard above the noise. So, in our endeavour to rise above all the noise, we have been forced to become self-promotion ninjas.
Work Expands (or contracts) to the Time Allowed
Parkinson's Law is a book by C. Northcote Parkinson. And this book is best known for its opening line: Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. Now, do you recognise it? I bet you do. Honestly, I didn’t know it had a name until I started writing this episode.
Goal Setting and the End of Season 1
Top athletes, kick-ass business people and high achievers in nearly every field all set goals because setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation - plus it helps you to organize your time and your resources. This certainly was true for me.
Are You Addicted to Workohol?
Society tells us that working harder and working more hours is good, but if you have listened to this podcast for a while you know that it is actually damaging you, hard on your fellow employees and even detrimental your company's success.
So, let me ask you this. “What is the difference between a hard worker and a workaholic?"
Work Zones w/ Vanessa and Adam Lambert
Today’s topic is a fun one. Mostly because for the first time in quite a while we have a guest hero! Guest heroes, actually. Vanessa and Adam Lambert from Bee The Wellness. I am talking to them about spaces around your home, your office or wherever you get your work done, where you can vary your stance, extend your gaze, vary your movement, and even other biomarkers like your body temperature, to keep from getting what Adam will refer to later as “cabin fever” while you are at work.
Concise, relevant material, as well as, fun to listen to!
Insightful, practical & well done
I'm loving Brock's newest pod baby. It's a fresh take on how to live better and become more of the superhero in your own real-life movie.
This podcast is so important for anyone with a desk job or driving!
I have listened to every episode so far and have started recommending to my friends and coworkers. Brock brings scientific data into each topic he covers, which helps me understand why the topic of the podcast is important. I especially like that he has one office/work tip per show and I'm starting to implement each one. These are really useful suggestions that would never have occurred to me before while I slog away at my computer and dimly lit office trying to get through the workday. I look forward to future episodes! Thanks, Brock, for identifying a relevant topic no one person has tackled in podcast format (to my knowledge)! :)
