Two big themes come through loud and clear to us in our interview with this week’s guest:
PURPOSE and ASKING
Listen here and see where you can tune in to Sheep Dip on all major podcast platforms.
Michelle Reid is People and Operations Director at the Edinburgh-based Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM).
Having progressed within her 5 years at IOM from HR Manager to a seat on the Board, Michelle is clearly an utterly authentic ‘people person’.
We loved the way she doesn’t just talk theory. Practically all her points are illustrated, sensitively, by real-life stories from life at IOM.
Upon joining the IOM, Michelle asked every member of staff (around 100 at the time) just FOUR questions. They may be simple but their answers were like gold-dust. The answers provided the IOM’s first people plan. And they could create yours’ too.
Michelle’s thoughts and tips are, as always, interspersed with analogies to the world of shepherding brought alive by Chris, Head Shepherd and co-founder of Raising the Baa.
Questions? We love ’em! Simply message us through any of our social channels or email [email protected] and we’ll ensure it is answered in a future episode or privately by one of our guest experts whichever is most suitable.
Enjoy – and thank ewe for listening ??
