Gen Z In The Workplace
26:47
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 61 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we discussed a one of my favourite things to chat about, mainly because I am so interested in human behaviour and trends, and how we see this play out at work, and that is generations in the workplace. Specifically today we spoke about Gen Z.
 
Gen Z are our first generation of true digital natives, being born between 1995 and 2009, they have grown up in the era of iPhones and iPads and integrate tech into everything. Yet, interestingly, they also crave social and human interaction, especially in the workplace.
 
Today we discussed not only the general traits of Gen Z, but also what to expect from them in the workplace and how to get the most out of them.
 
I referred in this discussion to an article by research company McCrindle, you can read that article here >>> McCrindle Research Article
 
As I mentioned, I would love to hear about your experienced in having Gen...

How Great Is A 4 Day Week?
24:21
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 60 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we discussed a concept which may seem a little strange to some of you, the 4 day work week. Taking a full time role and getting the same results achieved in just 4 days, or 80% of the time.
 
Championed by Andrew Barnes, after successfully implementing the model during his time with Perpetual Guardian, we discussed the various models of the 4 day work week, and how this could look and work within your business.
 
Of course before considering a change like this to your workplace there are a few key things we need. In today’s episode we discussed my top tips that you may need to consider before embarking on adopting this structure in your business:
  • Understand how to measure productivity;
  • Build and nurture trusting teams;
  • Trial and consult.
 
If you’re interested in learning more about the model Andrew Barnes speaks about, you can grab a copy of this book on this topic here...

Identifying Imposter Syndrome in Your Team
28:24
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 59 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we had a great discussion about a topic that we haven’t covered on the podcast before – Imposter Syndrome.
 
Now many of us as entrepreneurs, leaders, business owners and managers may have come up against imposter syndrome ourselves before, but what about our team? Do we know how to spot it and identify it within our team? I think it’s something we often haven’t thought about, or wouldn’t be sure how to identify it and help the employee overcome this.
 
I recently became aware of the work of Dr. Valerie Young, an expert in this field, who has identified 5 different types of imposter syndrome that may occur in our teams. She speaks and writes about how to identify these and what you might be able to do to assist employees in overcoming this imposter feeling.
 
In todays episode we unpacked the five types and Dr. Young’s suggestions for helping...

15 Years Part 3 - Learning to Juggle
28:41
 
Today's episode is part 3 of a 3 part series – where I am sharing 15 of the most important lessons I’ve learnt in my 15 years in business.
 
Today we focused on the art of the juggle – the juggle that is business, but also the juggle of being an entrepreneur and business owner, as well as real human – a parent, a partner, a family member and a friend.
 
Here are my 5 top lessons (although I’ve learnt many many more):
  • Work life balance is bullshit;
  • No one in your life cares how hard it is, surround yourself by people who get it;
  • Self care is not selfish;
  • Stop being a martyr;
  • Drop the guilt.
 
As mentioned I also have an invitation for you, to join us in our free Facebook Group, HR Support for Australian Businesses.
