Chief Wellbeing Officer podcast episode 10: The Neo-Generalist with Kenneth Mikklesen

Here Steven talks to Kenneth Mikkelsen, author of The Neo-Generalist with Richard Martin, a 2016 book that challenges head-on society's fascination with hyper-specialism and labelling. Neo-Generalists, according to Kenneth "live in more than one world" with the conversation covering mental agility, life-wide learning, the education system, the discomfort of being a Neo-Generalist, and how they may play an ever more important role in the future of work.

February's here, time for real change (part I)

Environmental design is the first piece of the puzzle for sustainable change. Without employing a new Architect to build a brand-new office space or the even more drastic choice of finding new friends, simple design choices will help drive a healthier you, and a higher performing organization.
