The Hidden Benefits of Investing in Training and Upskilling Your People
24:27
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 115 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re talking about the hidden benefits of investing in training, developing and upskilling your staff.
 
For a long time there has been a misconception that learning and skill development is an employees responsibility. But times have changed, and I’m going to challenge you on that. The reality is the skills that got the employee to us, and to where they are now, are likely not the skills that we need in them in the future, so it really is our responsibility to develop their skills and provide the training they will need to be successful in our workplace in the future.
 
For many businesses, training is seen as a cost, but when done correctly it really is an investment, not only in the individual employee, but in the business. Research shows us that a majority of Australian employees want to learn new skills, are concerned about their lack of skill development at work, and...

You Encourage What You Tolerate
27:26
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 113 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re discussing something that I know is a constant challenge for business owners, leaders and manager alike – it’s setting and upholding boundaries.
 
We really aren’t great at it, and today we discuss some of the reasons for that, as well as why boundaries are so important and what type of boundaries you might want to put in place.
 
As Tom Landy says “You get what you demand, and you encourage what you tolerate” and the key message there is that it’s what we tolerate that becomes the challenge. When we tolerate performance, behaviour, or anything else that is not acceptable, we are only encouraging it to continue.

Why 46% of New Hires Fail

Hello and welcome to Episode 112 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re unpacking a staggering statistic – that is that 46% of new hires fail! That’s right – almost half of all new hires don’t make it through their first 18 months.
 
Now that’s a shocking number at the best of times, but in an environment where businesses have resorted to ‘panic hiring’ due to the lack of applicants in the market, it becomes even more concerning that there is a higher chance you’ll find yourself in this situation.
 
In today’s episode I share the 3 magic ingredients you need to ensure successful hiring decisions and be on the right side of the numbers. It really is this simple, and comes down to 3 key things:
  • Creating the right role;
  • Hiring at the right time;
  • Finding the right person, someone that has the skills, motivation and is a great fit.
 
Without all 3 it’s pot luck at best – so they...
