The Overthinker's Guide to Life with Andrew Sewell

Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 29 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here. 

And P soupers - that little teaser at the beginning is from the very end of my chat with Andrew Sewell. We'd finished the formal interview and he reflected on my observation of his creativeness coupled with his doubt - when I was coaching him about 8 years ago. For me, hearing him talk about the shift in his demeanour and his sense of lightness was such a beautiful moment. And there's also a top tip there for any fellow podcasters who are listening - always hit record asap and leave it running, even when you've finished the formal interview.

In this second part of my chat with Andrew Sewell - we focus on his brilliant book - "The Overthinker's Guide to Life".

You'll hear how the seeds were planted and also find out how many self development books Andrew has actually read. He wanted his book to be different and I do believe he's achieved his mission, it's super useful - in fact we start the episode with my review.

You'll also hear about Andrew's approach to leadership coaching, how he asked for feedback on the draft book when he was less hampered by his "comparisonitis". You'll also hear his cracking takeaway, called the state of mind elevator.

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun, we're all about unlocking workplace potential with expert insights from Contextual Behavioural Science.
Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can find the transcript by clicking on the three dots at the bottom left of the box below and selecting transcript.
You'll also find the shownotes, including all the useful links by clicking on Notes in the box below and scrolling.
