Uncomfortable is OK Podcast


Making it easier for you to get out of your comfort zone.

Chris Desmond explores the science, the stories, and the strategies of getting out of your comfort zone and finding your magic.

Oct 9, 2017

Today’s guest is Spike Edwards. Spike is a behavioural based safety expert originally from Australia but currently residing in New Zealand. Spike has worked in multiple different countries including, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Brazil, Singapore, China, Denmark and the USA. He also worked for the Australian army and spent time in working in the SAS. Oh and he is about to be a TEDx speaker.

All of this has given Spike great insight into teamwork, creating shared values in a group or business, building relationships, risk management as well as getting uncomfortable. I really enjoy Spike’s take on building your risk management muscle, if we don’t take calculated risks then we don’t develop ourselves, our level of talent drops and the level of talent across the talent pool drops because we aren’t pushing anyone else forwards.

We talk today about;

+ Developing the self-belief mindset

+getting caught in the drift of life,

+ building your risk management muscle,

+ why safety is dangerous,

+ developing our communication and understanding,

+ building shared values,

+ and of course getting uncomfortable
