Podcast | Rethinking employment

In our bi-weekly interview sessions, we want to learn about new and innovative employment situations. What are alternative ways to find a new job? How can we find more meaning in our work? How can we leverage our strengths and full potential in our jobs? How do companies need to react to adapt to nonlinear careers when recruiting? What are new and flexible approaches in terms of working time and location? Should we even measure working time or is more about the impact we have? We want to discuss those questions with companies, HR people, founders, recruiters or everyone else, that offers new and alternative approaches to those questions. We also want to present people with interesting jobs and people that have created something meaningful within their “standard” jobs. We won’t ask you to quit your job and become self-employed. Because we believe there must also be answer in employment jobs.

#09 | Richard Brandt - Work lessons from Ghana

Get a different perspective on work: Richard Brandt, Founder of Codetrain in Ghana, Africa, shares insights about work in Ghana which is not only about yourself, but about the community and being beneficial to other people.

We can learn how Ghanaians are looking at problems from the very basic core without taking anything for granted, so they might detect lots of opportunities along the process which can be essential for driving innovation.

Richard explains how they make sure to train their students based on their individual strengths, why Ghana brings a lot of advantages and why it might become THE tech hub in Western Africa. We learn about the role of women in work and why they’re about to run in similar family vs career tradeoffs soon, which have not existed in the past. He reminds us that work is about solving problems after all.
