Happier at Work expert and podcast host Aoife O'Brien joined the "Job Sharing and Beyond" podcast earlier this year. If you have missed our conversation, here is the link:
In today's episode, Aoife and I followed up from our previous conversation, talking about the following topics:
- Trust and psychological safety as a continuation to our conversation about Aoife's master thesis "Fitting in at work".
-Flexible work: We talked about the 4 day work week which is how we met in the first place and the recent discussion about hybrid work.
-Aoife shared her favorite book:
"Enough" by John Naish https://amz.run/4kqC
How to reach Aoife:
If you would like to learn more about the 4 day week, here is the link to my previous conversation with Charlotte Lockhart, the co-founder of the 4 Day Week Global and partner of Andrew Barnes who introduced the concept to his company Perpetual Guardian and who wrote the book "The 4 Day Week". https://emilyspath.ca/job-sharing-and-beyond-episode-6-charlotte-lockhart/
I also spoke previously with Alex Soojung-Kim Pang who wrote the books "Rest" and "Shorter". In the book "Shorter" Alex shares his research and interviews with companies already working in a 4 day work week method around the world as well as other flexible work such as Lasse Rheingans' 5 hour work days. https://emilyspath.ca/job-sharing-and-beyond-episode-19-alex-soojung-kim-pang/
