Dealing with Conflict With Your Team
20:38
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 101 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re tackling a topic that most of us would rather avoid – conflict! Who else is a conflict avoider? I think most people are.
 
The thing is conflict at work is not only a reality, but it can be a good thing, if managed correctly and navigated effectively.
 
Today we’re taking a look at what conflict is, what types of conflict you are likely to see show up with your team, and what strategies you can use to successfully navigate a great result, no matter the topic of the conflict.

Work Trials - When and How to Use Them to Make Great Hiring Decisions
11:18
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 99 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re taking a super short, sharp and shiny look at work trials, and when they are great to use as part of your recruitment campaigns.
 
You may not be aware, but the Fair Work Act allows for unpaid work trials, to allow you to assess an applicants skills for the position. Whilst there are some limitations and rules, if you have a position you are hiring for which requires a certain skill set, like a barista for example, these can be great tools to help you make great hiring choices.
 
In today’s episode we looked at how to use work trials and when, as well as at what point it’s becoming a paid versus unpaid trial.

The Curse of Counter Offers

The Curse of Counter Offers
25:28
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 98 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re tackling a topic we haven’t actually covered at all on the podcast before – counter offers. That’s the scenario you face when an employee comes to you with a resignation, and you make them an offer, a counter offer, to try and entice them to stay with you. Conversely, it’s the situation that arises when someone you are trying to hire gets made an offer from their current employer to turn down your employment offer.
 
Counter offers can be a tricky beast. It’s important when considering them to truly understand the applicant or employees motivation around making a move, to consider the ripple effect it will have with the rest of the team, and to look at what you are actually gaining in this process.
 
We unpack all of those things in todays episode.

Building Trust With Your Teams - Part 3
24:23
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 97 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re winding up our 3 part series all about building trust with and in our teams.
 
Trust is such a foundation to a successful, cohesive and productive team and ultimately to a successful business. In fact Simon Sinek says “a team is not a group of people who work together, a team is a group of people who trust each other”. So without trust, you actually don’t have a team.
 
but defining trust, being able to identify it, and then working out how to nurture and build it, that’s a little harder to do. So whilst some leaders are innately good at it others need to work a little harder.
 
In today’s episode I shared with you that there are many framework and blueprints for creating and building trust with our teams, but the one that I am going to share with you on the podcast is David Horsager’s 8 Pillars of Trust.

Would You Hire Someone Without a Resume?
15:36
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 94 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
Today we’re asking whether it’s time to re think how we hire. Would you hire someone without seeing a resume, running any background checks, or even conducting formal interviews?
 
The companies adopting open hiring practices are doing exactly that, and they’re experiencing great success. So as we head into a time where we are expecting applicants to be in short supply, is it time to re think howe we hire?

Employment Agreements, Contracts and Engagement Letters
24:53
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 93 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re talking Employment Agreements/ Employment Contracts / Letters of Engagement – whatever you call them, they are the same thing. The all important document that sets out the terms and conditions of the employment relationship.
 
Why? Well simple, it’s the end of the year and as I reflect on the #1 thing businesses have asked for support in, or have had questions about, or had dramas because of a lack of – it all comes back to the employment agreement.
 
It dawned on me that despite spending large chunks of my consulting time on this, I’d never covered it in a podcast episode, so today is the day!
 
In this episode we discuss why employment agreements and contracts are so important, and why you absolutely want to have them in place, but we also unpacked what should be included, and what you want to leave out.
 
As promised in this episode I have...

Consultation is King in Mandating Vaccination
21:56
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 92 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re unpacking a recent decision from The Fair Work Commission about BHP’s vaccination mandate requirements and what this decision tells us about the FWC’s stance on vaccination.
 
Effectively we need to ensue the direction is lawful and reasonable under the circumstances and we need to genuinely consult with our teams before introducing a vaccine mandate.
 
At the same time we’re seeing an increase in vaccine status related unfair dismissal claims hit the commission, and it will be interesting to learn the outcomes of these in due course.
