Leading Different Generations and Bridging the Gap

Hello and welcome to Episode 209 of the People Powered Business Podcast!

Today we are answering a question that has come in from one of our listeners Lara. Lara’s question is: Lara’s question: how do you lead a team of young men when you’re an old fuddy duddy!?

To help unpack this further we start todays’ episode by looking to understand the different generations at work, and use McCrindle Research information to help us with that.

Then we discuss why a different generation doesn’t mean wrong or different, it’s just their lived experiences that has shaped them and how they approach work.

Finally we look specifically at leading younger generations in the workplace, and spotlight Gen Z who are currently aged 14 to 29.

The McCrindle Research tells us that Gen Z value approachable leaders who are clear communicators and display empathy.

They are focused on buying their own home and seeking financial freedom and they make decisions on their next role...

Crafting Effective Position Descriptions for Your Virtual Team

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...

You Are Not Responsible for This

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...
