In this episode we discuss degradation of everything from our ability to get podcasts out regularly, to morals, to society generally. But don't worry - we end on an optimistic note!
In this episode we talk about when things go right, what it looks like, how you make it more likely, and, as you can hear as we struggle with this at the beginning of the podcast, how much is getting things right part of our daily work reality?

This episode we were honoured to be joined by Dr. Emma Bond of iSEED (Institute for Social, Educational and Enterprise Development). Emma is an expert on child safety online and we talked about perceived risk, real risk, and how much the kids have to teach the grown ups!
We were going to call this podcast "Communication" but in fact it is more about words, our use of words, taxonomies, structures and even a little misunderstanding of our own use of words during the podcast!
This week on Shift we tackle the topic of disruption. Is it always a good thing? How do we feel about it? How do individuals and organisations deal with it when it is "done to them"?
This week on Shift we are delighted to be joined my Emma Mulqueeny founder of Rewired State and closely involved with the government in the UK for many years. We talk about change in that context, power, politicians, the civil service and the future.
In this episode we explore the topic of powerlessness, not just at work but in life generally. How do we overcome the feeling, have agency, and make a difference? Or is it all just in our heads...?
