Today’s interview is with Dr. Melissa Steach. Melissa is an award-winning artist, best-selling author, certified ergonomist, and psychologist with certifications in positive psychology interventions. She's also the Workplace Wellbeing Knowledge Lead for the western U.S. and west Canada at Herman Miller Group.
In this episode, Melissa and I are talking about authenticity, pursuing happiness in your personal and professional relationships, wellbeing, and how to make it so your workplace doesn’t suck.
• Melissa’s personal story and her entrepreneurial spirit.
• What is authenticity.
• Finding her way out of the projects.
• Melissa’s sacred contracts.
• Industrial-Organizational Psychology.
• Making work not suck.
• The intangible environment.
• A shift in work and workplace.
• Your authentic self at work.
Melissa is a visionary who combines art with research. She explores personal, and organizational culture and behaviors to understand how our environment can better engage, empower, and even shape how we engage ourselves and each other.
Above any education, Melissa considers her life experiences her most valuable credential; including growing up in housing projects in the South and her subsequent search for self through trying on many different careers. Melissa has worked over 65 jobs, all of which contributed to the person she is today...someone who is compulsively curious and always learning and growing through research and life experience.
