#2: Charlie Simson — Complexity, Change and Speaking Frank
Episode description and synopsis
Join me in rich conversation with Charlie Simson from Plucky Frank. As a self-proclaimed geek, positive psychology and and workplace culture whiz, Charlie and I dive into what it means to lead amidst uncertainty as well as the entry points to crafting an engaging workplace culture.
We explore practices of self-regulation, taking a principles based perspective as opposed to narrative-based perspective and speaking clearly more than simply kindly.
Buckle in for an engaging dialogue, timely and deeply relevant for this time!

Charlie has spent a bunch of time studying what makes people tick. She holds a Masters of Applied Positive Psychology, a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Politics & Philosophy and a Bachelor of Public Policy and Management. She also spent a few years having crack at a Phd, before deciding that applying research was more her thing than conducting research.
She was the Head of Staff Flourishing at Bellroy for 4 years and after years spent honing her craft while working for brands, government organisations and in consulting, she has started Plucky Frank as a culture consultancy.
