Episode Notes

“We're not really evolving, the way that we work… it's no wonder that a lot of us are finding work exhausting, repetitive, wears us down.”

Is your job wearing you down? Do you hate Mondays? Perhaps it’s not your work that’s the issue, but in fact the workplace culture. Before you jack it all in and start looking for gainful employment elsewhere, take a listen to Bruce Daisley.

You might know Bruce Daisley from his #1 Apple business chart topping podcast Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat on work culture. Or you may know him as the former VP Europe for Twitter, having spent over a decade running Twitter and YouTube (the latter at Google) for Europe, leaving Twitter as its most senior leader outside of the US. 

Regardless, he is an authority on the subject of workplace culture, now spending his time championing reforms to it and finding solutions to climate change. 

This is Dom’s second recorded chat with Bruce (the first didn’t make it to publication) so luckily this one is all encompassing. Whether you’re the CEO or the new kid at the company, sit back and listen to this enlightening podcast episode, as Bruce talks about the things he's learned along the way to make your work culture suck less.
