How can we make our jobs 1% - or even 2% - better? According to Rob Baker, the answer is 'job crafting'.
Stemming from his work in positive psychology, Rob suggests individuals and teams improve their working lives by taking ownership of their roles and making small changes that have an impact.
He joins Ross G and Owen to discuss:
