  1. Maartje & Fennande of Happy Office on Creating a Culture of Happiness at Work

    In this podcast, recorded at the Agile India 2019 conference, Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke to Maartje Wolff and Fennande van der Meulen.

    Why listen to this podcast:

    • If you want to transform organisations and make them future-proof, then happiness is crucial to success because happy people get better outcomes • When people feel they have a meaningful job that contributes to meaningful results, feel connected to their colleagues and are able to have fun at work they are more engaged which gives better results for the individuals and for the company
    • The drivers for happiness are different for each person – there is no single recipe that can be applied to every organisation • Happy companies have formulated their purpose very clearly and have translated that purpose to values and linked those values to behaviours
    • The four pillars of a happy workplace are: o Purpose – having a meaningful job o People – feeling connected, belonging to the group o Progress – making progress towards meaningful goals is the best motivator at work o Play – being able to have fun at work

  2. Why Meetings Go Wrong (And How to Fix Them)

    Steven Rogelberg, a professor at UNC Charlotte, has spent decades researching workplace meetings and reports that many of them are a waste of time. Why? Because the vast majority of managers aren’t trained in or reviewed on effective meeting management. He explains how leaders can improve meetings — for example, by welcoming attendees as if they were party guests or banning use of the mute button on conference calls — and how organizations can support these efforts with better practices and policies, from creating meeting-free days to appointing a Chief Meeting Officer. Rogelberg is the author of the book “The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead Your Team to Peak Performance” and the HBR article “Why Your Meetings Stink — And What To Do About It.”

  3. Work Friendships Are Mostly Amazing and Sometimes Messy

    Having a close friend at work feels great. You have someone to laugh with, confide in, and exchange glances with during a meeting. But we often fail to anticipate how the conflicting demands of work can occasionally strain that relationship. We talk through common tensions and how to handle them, either to maintain the friendship or to ease off of it. Guests: Nancy Rothbard and Julianna Pillemer. Our theme music is Matt Hill’s “City In Motion,” provided by Audio Network.

  4. Judy Rees on Effective Remote Meetings

    This is the Engineering Culture Podcast, from the people behind InfoQ.com and the QCon conferences.

    In this podcast Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke to Judy Rees about making remote meetings effective, clean language, the series of articles she is curating for InfoQ and the upcoming remote meeting that our listeners/readers are invited to participate in.

    Why listen to this podcast:

    • Remote meetings and the need for remote collaboration is not new • Real, interactive, participative meetings and training conducted over video conference is now possible • When you are in a remote meeting, each person who participates in the meeting brings a part of the meeting room with them • Quality of conversations matters; if you want high-quality conversations then you need to allow time for human, social interactions • By having participants turn on their cameras you make the video meeting more compelling than the distractions around the participants
