Unf*cking Work

The Unf*cking Work podcast is for People Professionals, Business Owners, Leaders and anyone wanting to start their own mutiny and unf*ck the workplace.
Podcasts will go out every other Thursday, and we will be chatting to experts about a focused topic, what it means for the workplace, and their tips and advice.
This is a Work Pirates production with your hosts, James Eves and Michelle Minnikin. We are passionate about re-writing the rules of work.
Climb aboard and join the movement.

#18 Alex Barker

Alex Barker is a speaker, facilitator, writer and community builder. And a Pirate Captain. 

She’s the Co-Author of How to Be More Pirate, the sequel book to Be More Pirate,  and Captain of the ever-growing community.

She’s also an advocate of helping women find their voice, to become more influential, powerful and effective speakers, negotiators and decision-makers. 

We talk about:

  • How she advocates for empowering women to enhance their influence, power, and effectiveness in various roles, including as speakers, negotiators, and decision-makers.

  • Disconnection between an organisation's stated values and true motives often leads to organisational gaslighting.

  • The significance of rest as an initial step when facing workplace challenges, as taking a break can help individuals gather their thoughts and energy.
