Embracing change by ‘unlearning’

In the early stages of our careers we learn how to do our jobs, manage office politics and earn promotion. But those habits and behaviours that initially help us advance can become a burden. We end up in meetings because it used to be important to show face, and not because they’re an effective use of our time.

In this week’s GoodPractice Podcast, Ross Garner and Owen Ferguson speak to Dom Price, Futurist at software developer Atlassian, about his approach to ‘unlearning’ habits and behaviours.
