Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 5 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here and I've got a little festive trailer for you all. Please be warned this does include some of my legendary vocals.
P soupers - Happy Yuletide - and as we approach Christmas Time - Mistletoe and Wine - I want to say a huge THANK YOU to you for your support for the People Soup Podcast - whether you listened to one episode or the whole shebang - I'm extremely grateful . Looking back over the year - we've had some outstanding guest - Season 4 included some legendary voices and Season 5 has had a phenomenally strong start with some unique festive treats and I am indebted to all of our incredible guests.
Our advent offering was a three parter with Dr Jutta Tobias Mortlock - who is at the cutting edge of next generation mindfulness, breathing new life into the research on collective mindfuless, which can help teams and organisations reach new levels of awareness and collaboration.
Our Christmas present is a two parter with Mike Jones - who founded Better Happy to enable organisations to develop healthy, motivated, high-performing managers, safe from burnout - I worked with Mike to co-design a leadership programme using ACT which has gone down a right treat.
And our Christmas yet to come - is a special two parter with Dr Hayley Lewis - a fellow occupational psychologist, who talks candidly about her career and her doctoral studies. She's been described as a combination of a high beam torch, a guardian angel and a mountain guide to support leaders in the challenges they face. Hayley's research explored the psychological factors, enabling women who run micro businesses in the UK to succeed.
All in all a right Christmas treat. As ever we're looking to bring you insights into the world of work from Contextual Behavioural Science and evidence based psychology to help you Glow to Work a bit more often.
Over at the news desk - I have a fledgling project in the design stage at the moment - bringing you those short, reflective, cup a soup episodes that you love AND they'll be in a new audio home. More about that as it develops.
For now - if the festivities get too much - know that there's always a warm welcome, insightful chats and top tips over on people soup.
What's that I hear you say? What would I like for Christmas - well dear listener - what I'd love is a rating a review from you - whatever platform your on - it will help us reach more people with stuff that could be useful.
I wish you all a joyful and relaxing break - Bye for now.
People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun. We're all about Unlocking Workplace Potential with expert perspectives from Contextual Behavioural Science.
Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can also find the shownotes by clicking on notes, keep scrolling for all the useful links.
