A Toolkit for a Better Working Life

with Beth Stallwood

About the Episode

Today, my guest is Beth Stallwood, a speaker, coach, podcast host, consultant, facilitator, and author. She is the director and lead Consultant at Beth Stallwood Transformant Ltd. Beth is on a mission to help people create and cultivate joy in their work and to enable organizations to create the right environment for success. She joined us today to talk about her book, ‘WorkJoy: A Toolkit for a Better Working Life.” 

Throughout the conversation, we dive into the three Es to reduce work gloom: the balance between work and life, values and behaviors, boundaries, mood hoovers, and more.

Beth discusses the importance of relationships and networking for personal and professional growth. Beth shares her insights on the different roles individuals can play in their network and how these roles contribute to overall success.

Most people believe in the balance between work and life. But we are trying hard to find a balance between two entirely different things. What we should consider is how work fits into our lives. We talk about the common mentality of people toward work-life balance and how you should set boundaries if you believe in it.

Overall, this episode of The Growth Guide provides valuable insights on relationships, networking, setting boundaries, and finding joy and satisfaction in one’s work life. Listeners will gain practical advice and tools to enhance their personal and professional growth.
