EP397: Sharon Darmody - From Challenge to Opportunity: The M.A.G.I.C Philosophy

“It is just part of the journey, you are not doing anything wrong, you just need to take a breath and say, ‘what do I need to do next?’”

- Sharon Darmody


2024 is here and our first episode of the year is one you won't want to miss! 

Despite our best efforts there are always going to be challenges in the workplace. What matters is our intention, our planning and when problems do arise, how well we embrace them as part of our journey. 

Our workplaces are hubs of connectivity, in a world where we are losing spaces for connection. The happier and healthy our people are in those spaces, the more engaged and productive they will be. It really pays to invest in employee well-being. 

Organizational consultant and author, Sharon Darmody, is this episode's featured guest. She has spent her career helping organizations build workplaces in which their people can truly thrive. 

As we start this new year, if you are struggling to build a connected workplace, aren’t sure when or how to implement intervention strategies, or want to improve well-being in your bookkeeping business, this is the episode to help you shake those January blues!

During this interview, you'll learn...

  • How to apply the MAGIC philosophy 

  • The power of workplace rehabilitation 

  • The importance of bringing people together with purpose
