WorkJoy Jam with Beth Stallwood Mar 07, 2022
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.
S7, Ep9: Dr Rina Bajaj - The Magic in Me
Dr Rina Bajaj is a counselling psychologist with loads of experience across many different forms of helping people with what’s going on in their minds. What I particularly loved about this conversation with Rina, is how practical some of her suggestions are – from how we can understand what is going on in our heads, to how we can understand the red and green flags and have a more balanced perspective of what has happened. We talked about where and how we are triggered and our fear responses when we’re trying to step out of our comfort zone.
S7, Ep8: Sarah Browning - Being a Kindness Cheerleader
Sarah Browning is the founder of the Time for Kindness programme and a kindness cheerleader and communicator. Sarah helps organisations, especially in the not-for-profit world, find ways to communicate their kindness stories. I think this subject is so important when we think about work joy; the idea of noticing and sharing acts of kindness when we see them and thinking of the kindest possible way of doing something even when those things might be really, really tough.
S7, Ep7: Sam Flynn - Consciously Connecting with Social Media
Sam Flynn is a social media trainer and digital wellbeing expert. In this episode, we talk all about the relationship we have with social media and our phones and how easy it is to become lost in the scroll and stuck in these zones. We find ourselves investing our precious time in things that perhaps aren’t making us feel great and contributing to the things we really, really want to be doing!
S7, Ep6: Felicity Dwyer - Crafting Connection
Felicity Dwyer has been working with organisations and specifically managers, for the last 20 years or so. She is a coach, facilitator and author of Crafting Connection which is out now! In this conversation we talk about different levels of connection – not just the conversations and communications we have with others – but also the connection we have with ourselves, understanding our own values, preferences, styles and the things that are important to us and that are a starting point for being able to connect with others. We also talk about connecting with our bodies and not just getting stuck in our minds.
S7, Ep5: Catherine Stothart - How to get on with anyone
Catherine Stothart has a varied and long career working with some great organisations and helping them as coach and facilitator. She is also an author and leadership development expert. I really enjoyed chatting with her in this episode around how we get on with people at work and how we can avoid some of the conflict that stops us bringing out the best in ourselves or other people We also talked about motivation – what motivates us and other people and how we ensure a sense of purpose in what we are trying to do each day.
S7, Ep4: Felicity Cowie - Communication is Alive
Felicity Cowie is a former journalist and now consultant in the area of communications, helping organisations work effectively with the media to get their messaging right.

We touched upon the atmosphere in these fast-paced working environments, the challenges, the highs and lows and what some of these organisations can do to better cope with these challenges which can be the cause of work gloom for a lot of people.
S7, Ep3: Eleanor Tweddell - Another Door
Eleanor Tweddell is a coach, mentor, author of ‘Why losing your job could be the best thing that ever happens to you’ and founder of Another Door where you are encouraged to rethink work and see change as opportunity.

S7, Ep2: Zoe Hill - How work can help you through tough times
Zoe Hill is the Operations Director of coffee organisation, Paddy Ann Scott’s, and in this episode we talk about her career, some of the challenges she’s been through, both personally and professionally, and how she is now really focused on the culture of the organisation and its people. We talk about how she is getting her work joy right now through some purpose-led activities.
S7, Ep1 - Simon Alexander Ong - Energize Yourself
Simon Alexander Ong is a coach, speaker and best-selling author and in this episode we talk about his career, how he really focused on his own development by really asking himself what success looked like for him and how he worked towards it over a number of years. Simon and I also talk about the thinking behind energy and how we can use energy management rather than time management to be able to progress, to get what we want to be able to live the life we want, living life with that intention and really understanding what our purpose is and how we get there.
