Podcast: Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It
First, Amy and Sheryl talk about their failed efforts to find peace and mindfulness. Find out why the best place to meditate might just be...the shower?
Then Amy talks to Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson, authors of Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It. Cali and Jody pioneered a new work model called ROWE, the Results-Only Work Environment. Say goodbye to face time and pointless meetings, say hello working however you see fit, as long as the work gets done. ROWE applies to a wide variety of situations and can most definitely make life better for working parents.
Learn more about ROWE on Cali and Jody's CultureRx site, and check out their blog.
If you've ever found yourself waiting for the work world to change, then you owe it to yourself to check out Cali and Jody's work. At the end of our podcast interview they talk about how you, as one person, can take baby steps toward improving your own work environment.
If you are new to The Mojo Mom Podcast, the first half of the show, approximately 15-20 minutes, is more of a "coffee chat" between friends, myself and my co-host Sheryl. And then in the second half of the show, I try to get my Terry Gross mojo revved up as I interview a noted author or expert whose work is directly related to motherhood, or indirectly makes mothers' lives better.
I encourage you to give both segments a listen. Our past shows are all archived on MojoMom.com and you can also download shows for free and subscribe in iTunes.
