Hello and welcome to Episode 206 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
In today’s episode I am sharing some real life examples from our People Powered HR Members and Power Boss Coaching Clients who have revolutionised the way they lead and manage their teams, and the success of their teams, with just 1 thing.
Now this ‘1 thing’ might be different for everyone, and will differ depending on where you are at with your team growth journey. The key is though, it is possible to implement just 1 thing and it be a complete game changer in your business.
The examples I share today include finally starting performance reviews after 12 years, implementing a proven resume screening framework, stepping up and building confidence, focusing in on retention of staff and switching up your thinking when it comes to creating roles in your business.
I hope this episode gives you some inspiration to implement 1 new thing with your team that could be the game changer for you.
Hello and welcome to Episode 205 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
In today's episode we are answering a loyal listeners question.
Each month I will be answering a question from one of our listeners as part of our ask me anything series. Today's question comes from Cat Matson of Impactful Presenters.
Cat’s question is:
I'd like to know how to craft position descriptions for virtual team members. I find myself thinking 'I need some help, and I want them to be virtual', and then I go down the path of 'what can a VA do', rather than crafting a PD (or a set of PDs) that articulate what I want.
I think this is a great question and one that many business owners wrangle with as they grow their teams.
Today I share the problem with the term ‘VA’ and how it’s messed up our thinking somewhat.
I also discuss the similarly between virtual and in person team, but the difference between an employee and a contractor. For a deep dive on that topic check out...
Hello and welcome to Episode 204 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
In this episode we tackle a topic that many business leaders grapple with: the balance between genuine support for employees and taking on responsibilities that aren't rightfully theirs.
Today's episode dives deep into the tendency to feel responsible for every aspect of your employees' lives, from their career growth to their personal happiness.
I addresses the common pitfalls of assuming responsibilities that extend beyond the scope of our role as a business owner. The episode highlights that the happiness of your employees is not your sole responsibility. This may challenge conventional wisdom, but I contend that allowing individuals to take ownership of their happiness is vital for their personal growth.
The discussion unfolds into recognizing the signs of responsibility creep, where leaders find themselves being quasi-counselors or life coaches instead of focusing on their core responsibilities. I draw on...

Hello and welcome to Episode 196 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today I am sharing with you what should be on your December 2024 Team To Do List.
As we’ve spoken about on some recent episodes of the podcast, December is a key time to focus on engagement with your team, and despite feeling like we’d love to crawl under the desk, this is not the time to do that.
But it’s about more than just engagement at this time of year, there are number of other things we should be doing before the year is out to set ourselves up for a better 2024.
Some of the things that should be on our list for December include:
Hello and welcome to Episode 195 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
