3 Ways to Create the Clarity Your People Crave
24:24
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 111 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re chatting about something that I was quite surprised I hadn’t already covered here on the podcast – clarity. When it comes to running a successful business clarity is absolutely king, but when it comes to our staff we sometimes aren’t so great at being clear. We fear that it makes us ‘mean’ or ‘bossy’ but actually clarity is what our people want.
 
When we aren’t clear with our people about what is expected from them, we are actually doing them a disservice.
 
Today I share with you 3 things you can do right now to create clarity for your team, and ultimately to help the business.
 
The first thing is to get clear on your organisational structure by doing the Clean Slate Exercise, you can check out more on that here.
 
 
 
The second thing is to get clear on roles and responsibilities by updating or creating...

Curiosity is Cool
17:04
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 110 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
 
Ok so today I admit this is slightly left field to last weeks technical episode, but it’s something I have noticed that not enough people are tapping into when it comes to their teams.
 
 
 
That is their superpower of being curious. We all have the super power, but we forget to use it, we forget how valuable it is, and yet it’s free, and at our disposal.
 
 
 
When we get curious we ask better questions, we have better conversations, we get better information and ultimately this enables us to make better decisions.
 
 
 
Without curiosity we make assumptions, we join non existent dots and even worse we become apathetic.
 
 
 
Today I share with you why curiosity is cool and how you can leverage the power of curious conversations with your team.

Using IFA's To Protect Your Business
16:30
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 109 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
 
Today we’re getting a little technical and looking at one of the most underused, undervalued and overlooked HR documents that really are critical to protecting your business – the Individual Flexibility Agreement, or IFA.
 
 
 
If you have staff on your team who are covered by a Modern Award, and you don’t to everything 100% as per the Award, you probably need an IFA in place.
 
 
 
Whether you’re paying loaded rates to absorb allowances, you need flexibility as to when staff work, or you loathe paying staff more when they are on annual leave, an IFA is likely what you need.

Attracting Great Applicants in the Current Market
20:33
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 108 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re chatting about a challenge that I know many of you are facing right now – that is finding applicants in the current market. It’s tough out there, isn’t it?
 
The thing is, when it comes to finding great staff, what worked before simply won’t work now.
 
In today’s episode I shared 3 things that you need to consider right now in order to actually attract people to your business.
 
You firstly need to treat recruitment like a marketing activity, and write ads that compel the ideal person to take action and apply.
 
You also need to understand who your ideal applicant is, where they are hanging out and how to get in front of them.
 
Finally, you need to show – not tell, and where possible harness the power of video to demonstrate how great it is to work with you.
 
If you can do these 3 things, you’ll have the best...

Are You Looking for an Exit Sign?

podcast Feb 23, 2022
Hello and welcome to Episode 102 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
Today we’re chatting about something that might seem a little taboo – but I don’t think it needs to be, and that is when is it the right time to look for an exit sign for one of your team.
 
 
Don’t get me wrong, this is not a decision to take lightly, and yes you need to make sure you’re following all of the required workplace legislation, wherever you are located, but sometimes it’s the best thing for you and the employee in question.
 
 
Today we discuss the scenarios that are likely to have you questioning whether it’s time to look for an exit strategy for this person.
 
 
We also discuss the signs to look out for in your employee if they are looking to make a move. These signs are absolutely not direct, and often quite subtle, but they absolutely tell you that the person is checked out, and may be actively looking to exit...
