In this week's show

  • Introvert myth of the week: Introverts are anti social. Err, no! Let’s just look at recent return to work surveys showing that 30% of introverts didn’t state a preference for home or office and 50% like the idea of flexible working.
  • Leadership tip of the week: 5 ways to better understand introverts, so you can boost productivity in your firm without wasting your time. In your team there’s probably a mixture of amazing people, some are always talking extroverts, and some are much quieter introverts. It’s quite possible you find the introverts harder to get to know, harder to understand and perhaps harder to get to interact with your team.
  • A discussion with Colin Newlyn. Colin decrapifys work. In his words for too many people, work is crap.
, leading to pitifully low levels of employee engagement and the workplace being awash with apathy. Contact Colin at or on LinkedIn

In a few weeks’ time series 2 of this show is starting. A couple of subtle changes: there's a similar structure, but by listeners request will have a new section 'question of the week' where I’ll answer one listener's question (add your question below and join me on the show, if you’d like). The interviews will also be slightly longer, so each show will now be 20 minutes long  rather than 15.
