Making sense of work

Ep. #4 Self Awareness

This is the first in a series of episodes about the importance of self awareness in our working lives. 

One of the things that Jean has learned over 30 years of consulting is how much being self-aware is important in our working lives and in our personal lives. If we want to make sense of every aspect of work, we need to understand our approach to it and what we’re bringing to it.

In this episode she talks about why being self aware is important at work. Using personal examples and practical approaches she describes how we can deepen our self awareness.

She does a deep dive into how our current mood affects us at work and how we can learn to be more aware and lessen the impact on us and the people around us.

How’s Work at the Moment? We all work – and yet we often struggle with work. Even very ambitious people find parts of work difficult.

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?
