We tried to come up with a creative name, but...here we are. Listen in as the Octopy team talks about real human issues facing leaders, organizations, and people in general. We may not have all the answers, but we're happy to start the conversation :)
Matt and Jean join forces again to talk about a something that's affecting a huge population across the globe: Burnout. Jean and Matt both share their own experiences with it--from when they were young and again in adulthood--and discuss some possible reasons for its prevalence in Millennials and Gen Z, as well as how they try to tackle it in their lives.
In this episode, Matt sits down with Aisha Rodrigue--speaker, coach, facilitator, and founder of "The Real Me"--to talk about a deeply personal topic: infidelity. Expanding on her own recent experience, Aisha discusses how you can take an experience of extreme pain and trauma, and turn it into a source of power.
In this episode, Paul and Matt discuss everyone's favorite topic: Meetings. We will explore questions like, what are some of the problems with the ways we currently meet? What impact can facilitators have on your meetings? How does this look in an increasingly digital/virtual meeting format? And what qualities make for an effective facilitator? Listen in to learn more about the art of meetings!
This week, Jean and Matt sit down once again to talk about Octopy's Core Tenets of a Human-Focused Organization, and which of them are their personal favorites--this one was hard, and even a bit surprising!
In this episode, Self-Management and Self-Organization veteran Paul Walker sits down with Matt to talk about what exactly "self-management" and "self-organization" really mean, the impacts they can have on your team, and how you can try out some elements of these systems in a risk-free* way.
*We recognize that nothing in life is ever truly risk-free. So, we mean "minimal or non-increased risk." Quit being such a stickler.
In our first ever episode, Octopy founder and Chief Vision Officer Matt Dunsmoor sits down with Octopy's Head of Growth Jean Larkin to talk about where the idea for Octopy came from, where the name came from, and even where the logo originated!
