Episode #7 - The 4 Day Week...Difficult Questions That Need Answering - With CEO Charlotte Lockhart
Welcome to the Workplace Evolution podcast #7! During this episode Michael Costello (Workplace Evolution Director) meets with Charlotte Lockhart - CEO of "4 Day Week Global" a community where all those interested in the 4 Day week can connect, share ideas and help create the movement.  This podcast is a great debate and exploration of an exciting concept…the 4 Day Week. It asks some very serious questions about where the workplace is heading. What would it mean to you if you could... - Balancing shareholder value and the needs of our employees? - Pay for the value people add rather than their time in the office? - What if there was a way to start winning the battle against an ever growing mental health problem in this country? - Not to mention the equality challenges, pressures on family, the ageing population and even the environment The podcast gives some insight in to the challenges of implementing a 4 Day Week as well as whether it is really for everyone. It also touches on some big political questions of our time - what society do we want in theUK? How would the great British tax payer feel about the 4 Day Week? Is it only for those that can afford it?

#5 Emotional Intelligence in Donald Trump, EI Predicts Big Brother Winner & NASA's Mission to Mars!
Welcome back to Episode #5 Here we meet with Dr Steve Stein, one of the first Psychologists to not just research emotional intelligence but to believe in it when other's didn't. He is the author of EI for Dummies and Psychologist for reality TV shows such as Big Brother. We explored some facinating topics in our discussion. I loved exploring what EI traits make for an ideal President - this includes Steve's big gamble on Donald Trump & how he would go about coaching Donald! We also explores why NASA's mission to Mars is considering Emotional Intelligence as a key factor to its success and...Can Emotional Intelligence help predict the winner of Big Brother?!  What I feel you will take away from this podcast is a good grasp of:  What Emotional Intelligence is and why it is still so important for your success... How global leaders such as Satyan Nadella at Microsoft and Ginny Rometty at IBM use EI in the workplace... Great ideas on EI and a new concept of "Hardiness".  As always podcast notes outlined below...also, stay tuned as to why I owe Dr Steve Stein a pint as well as fish and chips!  Multi Health Systems Test Publisher  Website: https://www.mhs.com/  Dr. Steven Stein's Website & Blog: http://www.stevenstein.ca/

#2 The Legend of Belbin / High Performing Teams / Boris Johnson, J K Rowling & Gordon Ramsey
In Episode #2 Michael Costello speaks with Jo Keeler from Belbin - the world leading experts on team theory and developing high performing teams.  Jo has 18 years experience of working with Belbin - advising companys globally on their teamwork challenges.   Thank-you so much to Jo for her time. She provides an incredible sense of passion for the topic of teamwork whilst treating it with the seriousness that is deserves.  The episode explores the story of Belbin and how the world famous "Belbin Team Roles" were created (you can see a link to the 9 Team Roles that are evident in high performing teams below as well as the resources available).  The discussion explores individuals from the public eye such as Boris Johnson, Gordon Ramsey and J.K Rowling to identify their Team Role (according to Jo) helping bring the framework to life. Focus is also centred on what key skills leaders need to perfect to develop a high performing team as well as how to drive "Psychological Safety" in teams - a term developed as a result of research by Google ("Project Aristotle").  We explore the topic of organisational culture and team roles in relation to the NHS as well as the usual listener's questions (Q: Do Belbin Team Roles Always Play Out As They Should (Question from The Belbinator!") Q: What are the applications of Belbin? Q: Is Belbin still as relevant today as it was in the 1970s? Q: I need help with my football team, what should I do (Charlie, Aged 8)?

Wow! What a first episode! A little longer than expected but some great content on  What lessons can businesses learn from bigger brands such as Cadbury's to help sell and market their products? Why on earth did Cadbury's think recording a gorrila playing the drums was a good idea to generate sales? What was the Cadbury's workplace culture like and has this changed since the take-over by Kraft? Will this take-over impact the brand?  What makes a great sales person on a home shopping channel & how do they sell the more unusual items! What are critical success factors that contribute to a successul product launch  Thank-you so much to Tony for his time. If you enjoyed the podcast please like and share!
