This podcast aims to provide you with valuable insights and inspire you to find your why by learning from other peoples' reasons for doing what they do. In other words, it focuses on helping you reflect and consider a new purpose for whatever it is that you do or even confirm the one you have already found for yourself. Along with the interviews, you'll be given interesting facts about human behaviour and life in general, which will contribute to making you a well-informed individual on topics that may not be discussed on a regular basis.

In this episode, André Katz will walk us through the nuts and bolts of his routine as an HR analyst and the daily duties he has to cope with. Not only that, but you'll also learn how Andre's benefited from his time away from traffic, working from home, and being able to be with his family and 5-month-old daughter.

Resilience was probably the word of the year 2020. Due to the pandemic, we've been kindly invited to consider, adopt this concept and make changes in our lives accordingly. The question at hand is: what is resilience and how can we actually benefit from it in tough times? Can it make us better individuals? Are you applying it in your daily routine or should you? Join me while I share my points of view and some research regarding this so acclaimed concept. I truly hope this episode can shed some light on the matter of living a quality life by using resilience principles. Bear in mind that I'm no expert on the matter nor am I here to convince you my opinions should be similar to yours. It's always good to grow together and if that's how you feel after listening to this episode, please send me an email at Enjoy the show.

In this episode of The Reason Why you'll learn about some of the reasons why we lie. Is it to protect ourselves or someone else? Is it motivated by fear of being embarrassed publicly? Maybe it's just because we believe the lie or want to be seen as better individuals? Whatever the reason or reasons are, you're up for a treat here. I really hope you enjoy these drops as they are shorter and allow me to make content available more regularly.
