It's Time for a Mid Year Reset
19:05
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 69 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
This week we are discussing the importance of creating the time and space for a mid year reset with your team. So often we have great energy and momentum at the beginning of the year, and really engage our team in that, but by the middle of the year this can easily dip.
 
In this episode I share with 6 simple steps to an effective mid year reset with your team:
  • Get the team together
  • Reflect
  • Show gratitude
  • Re establish the vision
  • Create goals and milestones
  • Seek input from the team/
 
This is a great time of year to re set, refocus and create every opportunity for massive success in the second half of the year.
 
As mentioned, if you’d like to connect with other businesses who are also juggling the challenges of teams, I’d love you to join us inside our free Facebook Group, HR Support for Australian Businesses, so I can learn more about what’s working for you and any...

Leading the Learning Revolution at Work

Hello and welcome to Episode 66 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
The approach to learning has certainly changed, and we are seeing a shift away from employee driven formal learning to employer driven informal learning as the key way to impart knowledge and skills to our employees.
 
As employers I know it can often feel that we are doing all the things to look after our employees. We are constantly looking after them, thinking about their needs and the onus and more and more on us. It can be exhausting and sometimes frustrating, but in todays episode I share with you why I think leading the way in this learning revolution at work can really set your business up for success.
 
Mentioned in todays episode was a report from Swinburne University called Peak Human Workplace, you can view that report here: Peak Human Workplace Report

Are They Above or Below the Line?
23:35
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 65 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re chatting about one of the most valuable management and leadership frameworks I work with, and something I can’t quite believe I haven’t discussed here on the Podcast before, and that is the concept of above the line and below the line thinking or behaviour.
 
Whilst I’m not entirely sure where this concept originated, I do know that Carolyn Taylor discussed this in her book Walking the Talk, although she credits Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad) with her understanding of the concept.
 
Simply, people who are above the line take responsibility ownership and accountability at work, and those below the line are inclined to blame, shame and justify – nothing is ever their fault.
 
In today’s episode we take a deeper dive into the different behaviours that will present in the workplace between above and below the line staff, as well as what to do...

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...
