Is DIY HR Holding You Back?
27:05
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 84 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
In today's episode we are talking about when and why you may want to consider getting HR support for your business.
 
Whether external or internal there are a variety of options available, and for many businesses it’s the uncertainty of what and when that’s a challenge. In todays episode I share how this decision is different for every business, and provide some real life examples of businesses I’ve worked with who have gone against the ‘standard thinking’ on when they engaged HR help.
 
As business owners we often think we need to figure all the things out for ourselves, but just like you take your car to a mechanic, and see your accountant for tax advice, HR is one of those areas where going it alone is not always the best approach.
 
Also today I let you know that I am super excited that the doors to People Powered HR are currently open but only for a...

How this one thing helped Loren set up her team for success
37:32
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 82 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re joined by Loren Bartley, CEO of Impactiv8.
 
Loren shares her journey to FINALLY doing performance appraisals in her business, and how, after 12 years, finally getting on top of this has allowed her to stop avoiding, remove the fear, take control and most importantly set her team up for success.
 
 
What I most loved in what Loren shared today was the realisation that:
  • Performance Reviews aren’t just about pay rises;
  • The framework she has implemented has allowed her to hire good people, who might have been asking for high salaries, but to bring them on at a pay level she is comfortable with, and then increasing their salaries once they have proven themselves;
  • She has created KPI’s as part of the process, which absolutely will help to drive performance; and
  • As her business grows, the structure she has established now will allow for her to stay in the drivers...

3 Key Ingredients to Retaining Top Talent

Hello and welcome to Episode 79 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re chatting about something that I know is a constant point of concern for many of you – once you find great people, how can you make sure you keep them in your business?
 
In this episode I am sharing with you the 3 key ingredients to retaining top talent.
 
Whilst of course there are literally hundreds of practices and strategies you can put in place to retain people in your business, these 3 concepts are critical to retaining your best players, without some strategies in these 3 areas you definitely will have turnover issues.
 
The 3 Key Ingredients we’re talking about today are:
  • Making Great Decisions;
  • Harnessing Greatness;
  • Rewards and Recognition
 
We discussed the importance of training, development and learning opportunities in this discussion, and as promised here is a link to our previous episode on creating learning opportunities at work

Delegate with Ease in 8 Simple Steps
22:41
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 78 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re tackling a topic that I know doesn’t come easy to many of us, particularly the entrepreneurial types, because we’re perfectionists, control freaks and don’t like to let go (I say that tongue in cheek and a little guilty of all three). Todays discussion is on delegating.
 
You can’t grow your business and develop your team if you don’t delegate, but getting it right can be tricky. In this episode I share an 8 step process to delegating anything effectively and with ease.
 
 
The 8 steps are simple:
  1. Learn to let go;
  2. Choose wisely;
  3. Explain why;
  4. Communicate clearly;
  5. Set parameters;
  6. Provide training and resources;
  7. Hand over responsibility;
 
Sounds simple but what I’ve learnt is that delegating is one thing, delegating well, successfully and effectively is an entire other. This framework ensures your success.

When Is a Contractor Not a Contractor?

Hello and welcome to Episode 77 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today I am bringing you a snippet from a longer interview I recently conducted with Charted Accountant Warwick Jackson, where he shared the accountants perspective of when a contractor is not a contractor.
 
Warwick is a Chartered Accountant & Business Advisor with The Fox Group, and he has a passion for helping small business owners increase profitability, cash flow & quality of life.
 
He gets no greater thrill than helping small business owners grow their business, increase profitability, & improve cash flow to the point that it delivers an amazing life for its owners.
 
When not helping entrepreneurs or playing football, Warwick I can be normally be found on the beaches of the NSW Central Coast with his wife and young family.

The 6 Real Reasons You Have Performance Issues
22:09
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 76 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
There is no doubt that poor performance, performance issues and underperformance are the #1 headaches for business owners and managers when it comes to leading their team.
 
Some studies have found that businesses can spend 1 day each week managing performance – not the best use of anyone’s time I am sure you can agree. If you’ve found yourself spending 80% of your time managing 20% of your team (and not the top performers), you’ll know what I mean.
 
Whilst the signs of performance issues can be varied and there are literally millions of ways this may show up at work, there is something I have discovered after working with businesses on their HR over the last 20 years. That is, at the heart of it, there are only 6 core reasons and causes of performance issues.
 
No matter what the behaviour or performance challenge, they all lead back to one of these 6 core reasons....

Are You Telling Your Team What They Need to Know?
23:02
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 75 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we’re talking about something pretty close to my heart, in fact, if you asked me the #1 truth that I believe I must honour in my business and life, it’s that I have a responsibility to tell people what they need to know, and not what they want to hear. Not sure where this came from exactly, it’s just something I have always known to be true – may have gotten me in trouble once or twice at school.
Growing up, were you the type of kid who spoke your mind or were you more agreeable? Did you question, argue and stand up for what you truly believed in, or were you more inclined to keep the peace and the status quo? I was definitely the sort of person, from a very young age, that had no problem speaking my mind, with complete honesty, and sometime with little regard to peoples feelings, because I believe in unapologetic honesty.
Now once or twice along the way I might have strayed...
