Emotion At Work Podcast

Hi everyone,

I wanted to draw your attention to a podcast called Emotion At Work. Here is the link to the website 

It is hosted by self-confessed emotion geek Phil Wilcox who works as an associate with DPG and facilitates Kirkpatrick Evaluation Programmes. Phil also runs his own consultancy business and offers a really unique blend of L&D and commercial experience. Phil's passion and interest in emotion is clear with him recently completing a MSc in Communication, Behaviour and Credibility Analysis. The way in which he sees the role of emotion in the workplace translates in to how he approaches his work and has been the driving force behind the Emotion At Work podcast.

Phil has just completed his 10th podcast and has invited a wide variety of guests & leading experts to talk about a range of subjects linked to emotion. Topics covered include:

  • Burnout and coping mechanisms
  • Purpose and meaningful work
  • Negotiating identity and conversation
  • Vulnerability and leadership 
  • Neuroscience
  • Emotion in every day work

Having listened to all of the podcasts since it started in May I would encourage anyone who works with people to make this a regular listen. The conversations are insightful with interesting and diverse topics being covered in each episode.

  • Hi Mike

    This looks great shame I don't have a long commute to work otherwise I could download and listen on my way into work.

    This is something I would definitely have benefitted from earlier in my career!

    Thanks for sharing


  • Thanks for the recommendation. I've downloaded it to my phone and plan on listening to it as I walk the dog tonight.
