How often do you listen when someone talks to you? I mean REALLY LISTEN to what is being said? Too often we listen to respond rather than listen to understand and that’s what this episode of YOUR CAREER Podcast is all about.  Oscar Trimboli is the author of Deep Listening and is on a mission to create 100 million Deep Listeners around the world.“We speak between 125 and 175 word per minute, yet we can listen to 400 words per minute.  That means that no matter how fast they speak, your mind can process three to four times more words.  It’s this gap that causes you to drift off and be distracted when listening.”Host of his award-winning podcast, “Deep Listening” and a popular keynote speaker, Oscar is passionate about using the gift of listening to create greater understanding, positive change and a stronger global community.What are the conversations you are not listening to?Oscar works with chairs, boards of directors and executive teams in local, regional and global organisations, and has experienced firsthand the transformational impact when leaders listen beyond the world they hear. Oscar has worked with organisations including Cisco, Google, HSBC, News Corp, PayPal, Qantas, TripAdvisor helping executives and their teams to not only listen to what’s said by their customers and employees but what is unsaid.Find out about Oscar’s career journey, how he handles change and how deep listening has helped his consulting business grow.

Episode 206 is the final episode of 2020.  This time last year I flew from London to Sydney after spending 5 weeks with my daughter and her husband who live in London. During that time I welcomed the birth of my beautiful grandson.Fast forward one year and what we took for granted – being with family whenever we wish, international and local travel, going to restaurants, group celebrations, being surrounded by people without feeling wary of every cough and sneeze, dancing, singing and simply ‘being’ – has completely changed.“The Only Constant is Change”There have been many very sad stories, and there have been incredible stories of courage, grit and love too. Let's focus on the positive, the hope, and the practical actions we can take to make 2021 a better year.Job seekers have a choice, even during Covid lockdown as to what they cand do. Take a break, clear your head, and focus on your physical and mental health and kickstart the job search campaign in the new year, or combine these essential self-care measures with a combination of job search preparation activities so you'll hit the ground running in 2021.Even though there are fewer open roles at this time of year, due to the season and also due to Covid-19, the hiring process has NOT completely ground to a halt.Currently there are 126,438 open jobs advertised on Seek in Australia.Maybe taking a well-deserved break will be just what’s required to put you in the right frame of mind to hit the job search process again in the New Year.If you prefer to keep the job search preparation momentum going, I make 5 suggestions on what you can do in this episode.Here are the links I mention in episode 206:Get Stuff Done Accountability Grouphttps://www.facebook.com/groups/getstuffdoneaccountabilityTop 3 Tips for a Stand Out LinkedIn Profile https://janejacksoncoach.com/11-linkedin-top-3-tips/LinkedIn for career success this Online Program (apply this code to get a very special price: MAKEMYDAY)  https://www.thecareersacademy.online/purchase/86749-LINKEDIN-FOR-CAREER-SUCCESS Navigating Career Crossroads book https://www.janejacksoncoach.com/bookMeditations https://www.janejacksoncoach.com/meditationIf you need more support please visit www.janejacksoncoach.comUntil next time, stay safe, stay well and my best wishes for the holiday season to you and your family.  Happy New Year!

Women in STEM:  Hannah Stevens and Taylor Perko are two impressive ladies who co-host The Blonde Blueprint to Engineering, a podcast focused on increasing diversity in engineering through fun, informal conversations. These two, young female engineers are figuring out the industry as they go and I was lucky enough to be invited on their podcast.  While speaking with them I realised what inspiring guests they would be on YOUR CAREER podcast as these Aerodynamics and Astronautics Engineers graduates will surely inspire all women in STEM around the world.Growing up, Hannah Stevens was always fascinated by planes, rockets, and space.  Hanna is an Aerodynamics Engineer at Boeing.Her passion, mixed with a strong desire to succeed in things that are deemed difficult or impossible, brought her to aerospace engineering - where she can not only blaze new trails for women and other underrepresented groups in the industry, but also build rockets that take us to new worlds or design planes that seem to defy physics! Her leadership style is focused around change - how can processes be improved or how can we create better solutions for ourselves or our customers? This mentality helps her thrive in her role as an aerodynamics engineer in flight sciences and product development. Taylor Perko is an Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering major at the University of Washington. She’s passionate about space and space technology.Currently Taylor is at the NASA Johnson Space Center co-op program, working in various divisions within mission control including the Environmental and Thermal Operations Pathways Intern in the Space Flight Systems Division; Trajectory Operations Pathways Intern in the Flight Dynamics Division and Robotic Operations Pathways Intern in the EVA, Robotics, and Crew Systems Division.We have a lively discussion about how these two inspiring women got into engineering, the challenges they faced and how they overcame those challenges to excel in their respective fields. There are few young professionals who are brave enough to tackle diversity topics and yet their podcast, The Blond Blueprint of Engineering, peels back the curtain on what it takes to get ahead in a competitive field.WHERE TO FIND HANNAH AND TAYLOR:Website: blondeblueprint.comThe Careers Academy: www.thecareersacademy.online
Pippa Hallas is the CEO of the iconic skincare empire Ella Baché.At the time of recording, we are in the middle of the global Coronavirus pandemic and these are challenging times when we need strong leadership and inspiration.  This episode is dedicated to this amazing woman who is successfully leading through change and it's an honour to hear her career journey on YOUR CAREER Podcast.Pippa Hallas is the embodiment of female empowerment - she’s a mentor, wellness authority, a mother to two young sons, a wife, and author of BOLD MOVES – How to Stand Out, Step Out and  Make Your Next Bold Move.  This book pays tribute to remarkable Australian women including Lorna Jane Clarkson, Tracey Spicer, Layne Beachley, Kym Ellery and, of course, Pippa’s great aunt, Madame Baché.Ella Baché is a family run business which was launched by her great aunt Madame Baché in Paris in the 1936 and brought to Australia by her grandmother Edith Hallas in the ‘50s and developed under the leadership of her father John in the eras that followed. Now, in her capable hands, Pippa is driving the brand into a new era of beauty. Over the past 10 years as CEO, she has focused on the same principles the business was founded on, but adds to its repertoire as a trusted go-to brand in the skincare and cosmetic world. Prior to joining the company, Hallas worked at the esteemed advertising agency, McCann Erickson in London. Her love for brand building and marketing [she studied business/marketing at university and did her post-grad in the same field] saw her join the family business in a marketing role, later as GM and then as CEO to take Ella Baché to the next generation. Pippa has grown the franchise business to over 155 salons and launched the e-commerce site which has evolved over the last seven years. She says she’d like to continue to support the franchise model and continue to prove that it is a viable business option for young women wanting to become business role models. “The fundamentals of what made Ella Baché a success was the person behind the name – she was a scientist/chemist and it was her approach to innovation and doing things differently that saw her become a world leader in beauty,” Pippa says. Pippa's prerogative is to educate young women about skin health and not erase the skin that makes them who they are. The key at Ella Baché is about making sure women feel confident in their own skin. It’s reflective of Pippa’s role as a working mother and CEO of a company – proving you can manage both aspects in your life and do so confidently. What’s more, she wants women to understand that quick beauty fixes aren’t the answer to skin longevity or loving yourself. “My philosophy is to make sure women feel confident in their own skin and that they don’t want to erase it to look like someone else. Beautiful differences about yourself is something we want women to embrace. Our skincare is about enhancing the look of your skin, making it the best it can be,” she says. “I feel very lucky to have grown up with such a great brand and to be part of its future,” she says. Pippa is empowering women, running a successful business and navigating uncertain times with compassion, empathy and exceptional leadership skills.  Follow her business, Ella Baché, on Instagram.Where to find Pippa Hallas:ELLA BACHÉINSTAGRAM

In this podcast episode you will learn what will help you to manage these challenging times.What we need is to develop resilience to get through this coronavirus pandemic so that, once restrictions are lifted, we can rebuilt our careers, our businesses and our lives.I hosted a panel discussion on Developing Resilience with 3 talented experts on a #LinkedInLive stream last week, and was honoured to have HR leader, Geoff Martin, Ageing Fearlessly author, Karen Sander, and Mental Toughness coach, Lia Zalums join me to discuss how to handle challenge, change and uncertainty.I’m based in Sydney and in Australia, people began living under strict new lockdown rules on Monday 23rd March as coronavirus cases, at that point topped 1,600.  As of today, 19th April, there are now over 6,500 cases in Australia and globally Covid-19 has infected 2.3 million people.  As new restrictions closed non-essential services, there are clear signs of economic and social stress with long queues forming outside Centrelink and the Australian government pledging a $130 billion JobKeeper Payment to help keep Australians in jobs.Due to Coronavirus, a record high 3.92 million (27.4%) of Australians were either unemployed or under-employed and looking for more work in the second half of March 2020.  This is far more Australians looking for work than was the case during the last recession in 1990/91.The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way the world of work functions, the saying “this too will pass”, has been used many times by so many people recently that I can’t wait until this does pass.I believe that when we are over this, it will be a changed world and what I hope is that we will all become more mindful of our actions and be kinder to each other and to the planet.In this episode, I provide advice on how to manage stress and anxiety during Coronavirus and self-isolation, and build self-belief in order to be positioned well to re-enter the workforce if your job has been affected by this pandemic; Geoff Martin, top Australian HR leader, talks about overcoming brain surgery which threatened his life and the lessons he has learned by facing mortality; Karen Sander, who wrote Ageing Fearlessly, discusses how we can connect to each other through the art of Story Telling, and Lia Zalums discussed Mental Toughness and how to be more resilient despite the multiple challenges that most people are facing today.For support to reduce anxiety and be guided through an empowering meditation and visualisation for success, visit www.janejacksoncoach.com/meditationFor support to get back on your feet in your career, there are many free resources and additional support at www.thecareersacademy.onlineFor all Career Management and Career Transition resources:  www.janejacksoncoach.comTo find my guests:Geoff MartinKaren SanderLia Zalums
