6. The role of Industrial Organisational Psychology in modern workplaces - and the answer to one question that is both a conversation-stopper and in essence the answer to everything
- July 9th 2021
Today I talk with Kim Coates a New Zealand industrial organisational (I-O) psychologist. Kim has over 20 years experience designing and delivering tailored development initiatives that help organisations understand how their people tick in order to bring out the best of them.
During our conversation, we explore why as human’s we’re prone to relentlessly driving ourselves to do so much it becomes detrimental to our health, wellbeing and peace of mind and identify one question that in and of itself explains everything.
Hi, I’m Julie Hood, and welcome to my podcast TimePeace.
It has been created in honour of my dad, a watchmaker who spent a lifetime restoring people’s time, by his daughter who for many years felt there was never quite enough of it - until she learned there was.
It took longer to get to that place than I thought and like all change it was challenging. When I look back, I wish I’d rescued her sooner.
I now teach others what I’ve learned, and continue to learn, in the hope their time can be restored. These podcast conversations are part of that.
Because in a world that seems obsessed with speed there is no better time to learn to make haste more slowly than now.
