Episode 219 – Carl David – Suicide / audio

suicide

Carl David talks to host Craig Price about his book about suicide and suicide prevention.

Suicide is an awful thing. Not only is a tragedy for the person who commits the act but the aftermath can destroy families and a leave a wake of pain affecting everyone left behind. What started as a love letter to his father quickly turned into a cathartic exploration of a family surviving suicide. The book, Bader Field: How My Family Survived Suicide, reveals the story of how a family endured struggle and torment after a suicide, and their fight to survive. David uses the book as an outlet to ‘pay it forward’ and help others cope with depression and suicidal tendencies. The author wants for those who are suffering to know that though they may feel lonely, they are not alone.

You get a copy of Bader Field at amazon.com today.

Episode 218 – Chris Price – Assessments / audio

assessments

Chris Price (@ChrisPriceCDP on twitter) joins host Craig Price (no relation) to discuss assessments. We’ve probably seen or taken a few assessments in our work lives (turns out I am such a Samantha) but are we using assessments properly? Chris talks about how a properly used assessment can help make more informed hiring decisions, create a better culture and find “red flags” in departments and organizations. They also talk about how they are abused and why a professional developed assessments with solid data behind it are far more accurate than making one yourself.
