Today’s guest on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is author and podcaster Bruce Daisley.
After a career as a senior executive at Twitter and Google, Daisley changed his trajectory. He left the corporate world to begin a podcast called Eat Sleep Work Repeat.
Daisley managed teams in his corporate life and became interested in what it is that makes us happy and fulfilled at work. He noticed that there was an awful lot of research out there about how to improve our work lives, but most of that research never makes its way to the people who actually are working in an office every day.
That’s why he wrote Eat Sleep Work Repeat: 30 Hacks for Bringing Joy to Your Job, which he sees as a cookbook to improve your workplace culture. If you’re looking for the ingredients that can help boost morale, increase productivity, and make your team a happier group of people, this book can help you do it.
On this episode of the podcast, we discuss some of the hacks from the book and take a closer look at the research behind finding happiness at work.
Questions I ask Bruce Daisley:
- Has technology made work more stressful, or is that just an excuse?
- Is company culture a myth?
- What is “monk mode”?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- What it is that actually influences how people feel about the quality of their job.
- The real science behind open plan offices, and why you shouldn’t build one.
- Why laughter is important in any work environment—even (and maybe especially) in difficult and serious ones.
