Are You Telling Your Team What They Need to Know?
23:02
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 75 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we’re talking about something pretty close to my heart, in fact, if you asked me the #1 truth that I believe I must honour in my business and life, it’s that I have a responsibility to tell people what they need to know, and not what they want to hear. Not sure where this came from exactly, it’s just something I have always known to be true – may have gotten me in trouble once or twice at school.
Growing up, were you the type of kid who spoke your mind or were you more agreeable? Did you question, argue and stand up for what you truly believed in, or were you more inclined to keep the peace and the status quo? I was definitely the sort of person, from a very young age, that had no problem speaking my mind, with complete honesty, and sometime with little regard to peoples feelings, because I believe in unapologetic honesty.
Now once or twice along the way I might have strayed...

Can Your Team Disconnect?

Can Your Team Disconnect?
23:45
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 72 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re unpacking a new phenomenon we’re seeing at work, thanks largely to increased technology and our move towards hybrid teams harnessing remote work – that is ‘availability creep’.
 
We all know the feeling, we hear the email come through on our phone whilst we’re getting the kids breakfast. It’s 7am, we know we don’t need to check it right now but we do, and then we have a knot in our stomach about the issue we just read about that we have to deal with in a couple of hours. No one is expecting us to read and respond to emails at all hours of the day and night, but because we can we do – and ultimately that leads to a failure to disconnect, and that is a fast track to burnout.
 
Studies show that this availability creep is starting to have a real impact on our teams, to the extend that some organisations are starting to legislate the...

Leading Well When You're Having a Bad Day

Hello and welcome to Episode 70 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today I’ve gone a little rogue and am having a discussion about something that’s not often spoken about – when we as leaders have a bad day. What should we do, and how can we show up and lead our team effectively when we’re in a bit of a funk.
 
I shared with you my 5 top tips or strategies you might want to tap into. These include:
  • Self care is not selfish;
  • Communicate with your team and own it;
  • Find things to do that lift your mood;
  • Take the pressure off;
  • Delegate and involve your team.
 
It’s ok that we have the odd bad day, it’s not the end of the world and we don’t need to feel guilty, but there are ways we can improve the day and get ourselves out of the ‘bad day’ funk.

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.

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.
