From Top Five Movement, this is the Leading Generous Teams podcast and I'm Claire Desira.As the founder of the Top Five Movement, I've worked with thousands of leaders across 40 countries, and I've seen how exciting it is to lead teams, but also how challenging it can be, let alone right now. The pandemic's had a seismic impact on community focused organizations and it is, of course, taking its toll on the people working within them.In our first season, we spoke with social sector leaders about the impact the pandemic is having on their team. We talked about how leaders are supporting their teams and also about where they're finding their own support, the tools that they're using, and also what other leaders can learn from their experience.In season two, we're expanding our guests to include some incredible for purpose businesses and B Corps. We're talking to Simon Griffiths from Who Gives A Crap. And we're also expanding our guests to include incredible emergency and frontline services leaders as well. That includes talking to people like Michelle Murphy from Ambulance Victoria.We'll leave you feeling hopeful and re-energized, and with some new tools to tackle these challenges and to support your teams in new ways.

One of the biggest concerns for leaders right now is the well being of their own teams. It’s a significant emerging issue, especially in the social sector.We want to help, so we’re partnering with Australia's leading community news organisation, Pro Bono Australia, on a podcast that will be launching on 1st September.I’m excited to host the podcast and speak with incredible social sector leaders about the impact COVID-19 is having on their staff – the pressure of changing service delivery, the challenges of delivering on the front line during a pandemic and the financial uncertainty in the face of growing demand.Let’s not forget the mental health challenges of balancing all of this with other roles we play, which for many have also changed in lock down (hats off to the remote learning parents, those feeling lonely in isolation or those who are spending too much time with loved ones… you know what I mean!)We’re focusing on how leaders are supporting their staff through this time, but also where they’re finding their own support, what tools they’re turning to and how other leaders can learn from their experience.We’ll leave you feeling hopeful and re-energised with ideas on how you can tackle these challenges and support your teams in new ways.The first episode will drop in two weeks on 1 September.Hit subscribe now to never miss an episode.And if you can’t wait to start building your team’s resilience with our free tools, head to www.topfivemovement.com/tools to get started.Head over to www.probonoaustralia.com.au for all the latest sector news.
