A podcast from Workplace Learning & Professional Development

We believe that there is a magical space between an incident and our reaction to that occurrence. We call that space — that time in between — our Interruption.

Join Workplace Learning & Professional Development, Georgia Tech's dedicated team for faculty and staff development, as they routinely grapple with the big questions that we all think about but too often hesitate to ask.

With the help of colleagues across campus, we explore new ways to break free of fixed mindsets, the appropriate tools to engage positively during an interruption, and how to yield positive results that foster new kinds of professional growth.

The opinion-based podcast can be streamed on Soundcloud and Apple Podcasts.
