Catherine is a powerful host who creates a safe container for her guest to share their story. Having listened to her double episode with Antoinette Daniel I have a deeper understanding of burnout, the challenges faced and most importantly what moving forward looks like. If you or anyone you know is impacted by this topic, this episode is a must listen. The overall theme of the podcast is to create a platform to have the conversations that should be happening in the workplace, but aren’t. This is a great place for leaders to go to see what they could explore within their own organisations and employees to go to feel less alone and get ideas to tackle the challenge.
With natural candour, honesty and humour Catherine Dives into topics on our minds but not tongues. From prejudice blindfolds to bit size take always to up your communication game, the unsaid @work podcast is a true value add for any human that works (and there’s a fair bit about furry friends too)
I have been listening to this podcast from almost the start after a friend recommended it to me. I am not in the corporate world but the issues Catherine talks about translate to personal life so well. I have learned so much. Honestly it’s my no1 podcast. Thanks for all the hard work Catherine
A compelling and authoritative look at the workplace from a podcaster willing to tackle the ‘difficult’ topics with honesty and tenderness.
Catherine's discussions whilst business focused are also highly relatable outside of the workplace. She approaches the discussions with heartfelt openness and candor. You often feel you are learning with her as well as from her as the conversations unfold. I find myself mulling over the discussion, long after finishing the podcast. Highly recommended!
Honest insightful conversations that always leave me pondering and/or taking action
Catherine is my wing woman - we meet every few weeks and she helps me unknot the knotty work issues floating about in my head & affecting my work. The podcast Unsaid at Work keeps me topped up in between our meetings. Covering everything from the 5 questions to change your life, to how to give feedback effectively, along with the ‘taboo’ topics about racism and sex at work. Catherine also introduces us to some amazing people who we can all learn from. If you haven’t listened yet I would say give it a go.
Catherine's podcasts are so refreshing: she's shedding a light on what can feel like challenging / difficult workplace topics by reminding us that we're all human and these conversations DO have a place in the office. Particularly pleased to see a running theme of the need to create psychologically safe spaces at work to have these types of chat and improve employee experience. Keep the podcasts coming!
Catherine Stagg-Macey is a fabulous host of Unsaid@Work who asks just the right questions of her interesting guests. I’ve just listened to Thriving as a Freelancer which contained a really informative and enjoyable mix of personal stories, experiences and plenty of practical tips - great conversation! Could totally resonate with lots of what was discussed - definitely thought provoking and uplifting with a clear focus on thriving in whatever work you do. Particularly found the exploration of ‘What makes for a great freelancer?’, and ‘Can anybody be a freelancer?’ interesting - thank you Catherine
I’m really enjoying this podcast! It covers lots of difficult topics in Avery authentic way. If you like hearing and learning about the elephant in the room topics at work then this podcast is DEFINITELY for you and worth a listen. You won’t be disappointed!
Love the topics that Catherine selects and the easy rapport she has with her guests. Great questions!
The conversation in the podcast is frank and real. Two things vital to find your way around. Catherine shares her vulnerability and learnings in a warm and professional way and gets the most out of her guest. Great to keep you motivated and connected with what matters to you. Go listen and find your way!
Every now and again my courage flags and I’m tempted back to a job job from my freelance life. The first episode was such a great conversation that renewed my love affair with freelancing. Such a great energy and inspiration to keep on keeping on. Thank you Catherine for a fabulous start to your season 🙏
Unsaid @ work. Said @ last. Intriguing and insightful. Looking forward to future episodes.
So much of this resonates with me. I always wanted that ‘friend on my shoulder’ who could help assure me and guide me when I needed it. What a fabulous resource this will be to both new leaders and those who have simply ‘lost their mojo’ as Catherine puts it. It’s definitely worth watching, and tuning into, this space!
I am so pleased Catherine is now talking about the topics every corporate forces on to their teams and almost make you afraid to take a step outside. Equally no safe space is created for employees to ask questions as the environment changes. How do you understand something you have no background in! 3 years in having retired from the corporate world 3 years ago. I have been utterly astonished how I can make money…. Thank you for talking about this!
