Dr Heather McKee - Episode 127

“I think it’s important to understand that there’s more than being right or wrong. We can often be in-between.

We can be, unsure. We can be, yet to be convinced. We can be, I need an update on my knowledge around that!”

Hosting the Podcast gives me the opportunity to speak to very smart people and to also witness people thinking in real-time while they speak. Both these things are a huge privilege to witness. Today’s return guest, Dr Heather McKee, allowed me to experience both of those in abundance.

Dr Heather McKee is known as Europe’s leading lifestyle behaviour change specialist. Having studied health behaviour change psychology for 10 years, her mission is to offer a sustainable, evidence-based alternative to an industry saturated with quick fixes and health fads.

She works with companies globally to create evidence-based wellness programs, design their wellbeing strategy, deliver keynote talks, and help people find joy in their healthy habits through her Sticky Habit Method.

This conversation, however, is quite different as we discussed many other fascinating topics.

Discussion Topics: What you will discover from listening to this Podcast:
