“When people are least sure, they are often most dogmatic” - John Kenneth Galbraith

Hello again! 
Can you believe we are already a month into 2018! Time is flying 🚀 Late last year I booked an event with General Assembly which is now only a few weeks away. On Monday, Feb, 26 I will be hosting my first fireside chat with Will Hudson, co-founder of It’s Nice That and Lecture In Progress, at the General Assembly London campus. 
It will be a live broadcast so be sure to tune in if you’re not in town 🎙
Leadership Fireside Chat with It’s Nice That + OverTime Leader
In other news, I am thrilled with the first podcast of 2018. I sat down with my friend and fellow ‘people person’ Heather Taylor Portmann. We covered a lot of ground; engagement survey’s best practices, compassion for leaders, and (my fave) dogmatic change management.
This podcast has already inspired me to write a whole bunch of follow up articles so hope you get something out of it too.
Heather's Inspiration Playlist
📕 Heather’s been reading about Schwartz Rounds which are hugely impactful for developing a “culture of caring” in the NHS. They enable workers to address painful, sometimes shameful experiences workers have by creating an open, non-judgemental and supportive forum with a specially-trained facilitator. It’s also a great example of successful scaling of innovation in the public sector. This might be interesting for people who are curious about the topic of compassion we talked about. Here’s a short video that explains how it works.
