What are you working on?
As part of my personal development I’ve studied, and subsequently acquired a certification in Neuroleadership. I am knoodling the concepts of neuroscience, change, inter-disciplinary practice readiness, resilience and conversations, as applied to quality improvement in health care.
Do you have any recommended change management books / resources to share?
Anything from David Rock – read this for a quick overview.
I’ve also just picked up the unpublished thesis from Casper Badenhorst on neuroleadership and organisational change. I’ll let you know more once I’m into it.
How do you like to spend your time outside of work?
Easy, cooking. My sister is a Cordon Bleu chef and accountant. We always joke, that when we both become independently wealthy, we will open a restaurant together! I love all aspects of entertaining and preparing meals for family and friends. Planning, shopping, organizing, and especially eating. Which is great because my husband is a real wine aficionado, hence we’ve been together for over 20 years! I’ve started teaching cooking as well, with my girlfriend’s 4 and 6 year old. Gourmet peanut butter sandwich anyone?
