    Episode 40 - Emotion at Work in overlooked parts of conversation (AKA Non-lexical Vocalisations)

    Episode 40 - Emotion at Work in overlooked parts of conversation (AKA Non-lexical Vocalisations)

    My guest for this podcast is Dr Emily Hofstetter (bio here  https://emilyhofstetter.ca/ ) and we get into geeky (as is often the case with me) detail about linguistics, conservation analysis and what Emily calls 'non lexical vocialisations'.  A more everyday term would be the non word noises that feature in interaction.  We talk about how her (and others) research can be really helpful for us to look at talk and conversation in the workplace.

    Episode 39 - Emotion at Work in Neuroscience and Organisational Change

    Episode 39 - Emotion at Work in Neuroscience and Organisational Change

    This episode looks at neuroscience and organisational change. My guest on this podcast, Hilary Scarlett, is both a practitioner and an author and in the most recent edition of her book she brings together the neuroscience of organisational change. I was particularly interested in getting this guest on as she has those two different perspectives.

    Episode 38 - Emotion at Work in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

    Episode 38 - Emotion at Work in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

    This episode looks at Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. The topic in this episode is one that I’m very conscious of and aware of because as a middle aged white man I’m conscious of the advantages this brings me in life.  If I think back over my career this consciousness hasn’t always been with me.  Whether that’s because of the wider conversation that’s happening around equality, diversity and inclusion or whether that’s with age I’ve become more aware of it. Our guess today, Mayokun 'Mac' Alonge, is working hard to change the awareness and consciousness around equality, diversity and inclusion.

    Episode 37 - *special edition* A focus on emotion

    Episode 37 - *special edition* A focus on emotion

    This episode is a new format for the podcast.  I have gone back over some of our previous episodes and pulled together a 'best of sort of episode with a focus on 'Emotion'.  Episodes; 2 (with SJ Lennie), 25 (with Cliff Lansley), 26 (with Jo Wainwright) and 27 (with James Gross) all took a slightly different perspective on emotion and yet there were also some similarities and differences.  I wanted to pull out these similarities and differences and add to them with some reflection, comments and narration of my own.  I am not 100% sure if it works as a format and please let me know what you think.
    Your references can be found on the original episode's show notes. 
    Happy Listening

I feel very honoured to be one of the few people in the world that are a certified Kirkpatrick evaluation programme facilitator.
