EP.5 The Role of a Mining Engineer and the Emotional Intelligence Approach in the Mining Industry with Owen Burchell

In this week’s episode of the Full Production podcast, I get my good mate Owen Burchell on the blower to have a chat with him about all things mining. I discovered Owen when I was travelling around WA, and was blown away by his intelligence and dedication to his work. With over 15 years of experience in operations of all sorts – from underground to open cut – Owen is filled with great advice and insight into the industry.

Listen to the episode to learn more about mining, and enjoy Owen’s obvious passion and appreciation for what he does. We chat about a number of different things, including the beginning of Owen’s career and what he’s achieved on the way, plus all of this stuff, too:

  • The mining commodity cycle, and how you can get into it
  • What the future of mining might look like
  • The various misconceptions around the mining industry, and how to survive the downturns
  • How Owen has developed his emotional intelligence to better his career
  • A few rules of thumb that every newcomer in the industry needs to know
  • The surprising benefits behind conflict
  • How to rise to the challenge of newness instead of remaining stagnant
  • Getting the best out of the people you work with
