Ep 4: Jordan Saxby – Are You Exploiting Yourself?

WorkJoy Jam with Beth Stallwood Feb 01, 2021

S7, Ep10 - Lesley Woods - Don't Get Stuck in your Mental Tent

S7, Ep10 - Lesley Woods - Don't Get Stuck in your Mental Tent

Lesley Woods is a senior Royal Air Force Reserve Media Officer and she shared some wonderful stories and unique perspectives with me about the challenges of working in the military, but also about how you can remove your ego in a situation to allow you to work together to achieve the outcome and impact you’re looking for. Throughout this conversation what we found is that, even though these examples are from the military and from some pretty hairy situations that Lesley has been in herself, there are so many lessons that can be learned from here that apply everywhere regardless of your job or your situation. This episode will help you to look at the advice and decide how to apply it your circumstances.
