Sheep Dip with Raising the Baa

Feb 22 2023 • 39 mins

Welcome back to this season of SheepDip - themed Workplace Wellness.

With a different expert on each show, you will be inspired by their insights and walk away with practical advice on how to create a healthy, sustainable culture for teams to thrive.

Our second guest is Flick Wileman, Global Wellbeing & Engagement Lead at Reckitt, which pursues a cleaner, healthier world through brands such as as Dettol, Durex and Nurofen.

Hear Flick's incredible journey from a fascinating, and different, childhood, through quitting university after 6 months to a senior global role at a household name company employing over 40,000 people.

Flick's passion for equality, diversity and inclusion comes through loud and clear throughout the interview and she shares truly practical advice on steps to take for your teams' wellbeing.

Purpose is central to all of Flick's strategies.  And, it all starts, every time, with WHY.

She may have left her first degree course within the first year, but she is now somehow studying, in her own time and through self investment, a BSc in Business Psychology.  She runs to feed her body and mind, since she listens to a podcast whilst doing so.

🎧 Here are some of Flick's go-to podcasts:

Diary of a CEO - Steve Bartlett
Jake Humphrey - The High Performance Podcast
Dr Amanda Potter - The Chief Psychology Officer

📚 And thebooks which have had a major impact on Flick's life:

Start with Why - Simon Sinek
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway - Susan Jeffers
How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie
Growth Mindset - Carol Dweck
