Should You Sack Them Or Save Them?
25:22
 
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.
 
In todays episode I was also excited to let you know about a Masterclass I’m hosting on the 23rd March 2022 – Sack Them or Save Them. In this free masterclass we will take a deeper dive into not only how to identify what type of problems you have on your team...

Hello and welcome to Episode 104 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
How frustrating is it when there is someone on our team who we know is great, they have all the skills, they are super capable, the team love them, but they just aren’t motivated! They just do enough, they show no initiative and we can to constantly be on their back to get anything done.

Do You Have a Skills Gap in Your Team?
22:04
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 103 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re discussing skills gaps – how to identify when you have one with one of your team, or across your business, and what some of your options might be in fixing this.
 
We also looked at why a skills gap with one of your people is in fact not a huge problem, in fact it’s the easiest problem to fix. So if you have someone who is an awesome cultural fit, is great to have around and really is motivated to do a good job – BUT they lack skills – don’t panic! There is gold in these people, you just need to figure out how to harness it.

Are You Looking for an Exit Sign?

podcast Feb 23, 2022
Hello and welcome to Episode 102 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
Today we’re chatting about something that might seem a little taboo – but I don’t think it needs to be, and that is when is it the right time to look for an exit sign for one of your team.
 
 
Don’t get me wrong, this is not a decision to take lightly, and yes you need to make sure you’re following all of the required workplace legislation, wherever you are located, but sometimes it’s the best thing for you and the employee in question.
 
 
Today we discuss the scenarios that are likely to have you questioning whether it’s time to look for an exit strategy for this person.
 
 
We also discuss the signs to look out for in your employee if they are looking to make a move. These signs are absolutely not direct, and often quite subtle, but they absolutely tell you that the person is checked out, and may be actively looking to exit...

Dealing with Conflict With Your Team
20:38
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 101 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re tackling a topic that most of us would rather avoid – conflict! Who else is a conflict avoider? I think most people are.
 
The thing is conflict at work is not only a reality, but it can be a good thing, if managed correctly and navigated effectively.
 
Today we’re taking a look at what conflict is, what types of conflict you are likely to see show up with your team, and what strategies you can use to successfully navigate a great result, no matter the topic of the conflict.

Work Trials - When and How to Use Them to Make Great Hiring Decisions
11:18
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 99 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re taking a super short, sharp and shiny look at work trials, and when they are great to use as part of your recruitment campaigns.
 
You may not be aware, but the Fair Work Act allows for unpaid work trials, to allow you to assess an applicants skills for the position. Whilst there are some limitations and rules, if you have a position you are hiring for which requires a certain skill set, like a barista for example, these can be great tools to help you make great hiring choices.
 
In today’s episode we looked at how to use work trials and when, as well as at what point it’s becoming a paid versus unpaid trial.

The Curse of Counter Offers
25:28
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 98 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re tackling a topic we haven’t actually covered at all on the podcast before – counter offers. That’s the scenario you face when an employee comes to you with a resignation, and you make them an offer, a counter offer, to try and entice them to stay with you. Conversely, it’s the situation that arises when someone you are trying to hire gets made an offer from their current employer to turn down your employment offer.
 
Counter offers can be a tricky beast. It’s important when considering them to truly understand the applicant or employees motivation around making a move, to consider the ripple effect it will have with the rest of the team, and to look at what you are actually gaining in this process.
 
We unpack all of those things in todays episode.

Building Trust With Your Teams - Part 3
24:23
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 97 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re winding up our 3 part series all about building trust with and in our teams.
 
Trust is such a foundation to a successful, cohesive and productive team and ultimately to a successful business. In fact Simon Sinek says “a team is not a group of people who work together, a team is a group of people who trust each other”. So without trust, you actually don’t have a team.
 
but defining trust, being able to identify it, and then working out how to nurture and build it, that’s a little harder to do. So whilst some leaders are innately good at it others need to work a little harder.
 
In today’s episode I shared with you that there are many framework and blueprints for creating and building trust with our teams, but the one that I am going to share with you on the podcast is David Horsager’s 8 Pillars of Trust.
