Importantly Michael points out that people are our biggest risk points, and also that having the right people in terms of providers to support us is critical to protecting our businesses.

You Encourage What You Tolerate
27:26
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 113 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re discussing something that I know is a constant challenge for business owners, leaders and manager alike – it’s setting and upholding boundaries.
 
We really aren’t great at it, and today we discuss some of the reasons for that, as well as why boundaries are so important and what type of boundaries you might want to put in place.
 
As Tom Landy says “You get what you demand, and you encourage what you tolerate” and the key message there is that it’s what we tolerate that becomes the challenge. When we tolerate performance, behaviour, or anything else that is not acceptable, we are only encouraging it to continue.

Why 46% of New Hires Fail
22:17
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 112 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re unpacking a staggering statistic – that is that 46% of new hires fail! That’s right – almost half of all new hires don’t make it through their first 18 months.
 
Now that’s a shocking number at the best of times, but in an environment where businesses have resorted to ‘panic hiring’ due to the lack of applicants in the market, it becomes even more concerning that there is a higher chance you’ll find yourself in this situation.
 
In today’s episode I share the 3 magic ingredients you need to ensure successful hiring decisions and be on the right side of the numbers. It really is this simple, and comes down to 3 key things:
  • Creating the right role;
  • Hiring at the right time;
  • Finding the right person, someone that has the skills, motivation and is a great fit.
 
Without all 3 it’s pot luck at best – so they...

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...

Should You Sack Them Or Save Them?

Hello and welcome to Episode 105 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re asking the tricky question – should you sack them or should you save them?
 
I’m sure we’ve all been in a situation where we’ve asked this question – can I turn this person around and is it worth the effort?
 
In today’s episode we chat about the 3 key ingredients every employee needs to be great for your team, and what happens when one of these ingredients is a little off, or totally missing. We also unpack how the scale of the missing ingredient, and the combination that may exist, help to inform our decisions about whether in fact we should sack them or save them.
