In this episode, I chat with Ian Donaldson, where he shares insights from the last decade and predictions for the next. Ian is the founder of Rounded Consulting, and this conversation is very much about how well-rounded organisations need to become in the next decade. We also chat about the shifts into a customer experience focus, why nesting is a crucial part of life and how the typical organisation won’t exist at the end of the next decade. Key episode highlights include: By doing work on my own arrangement, I can be more of myself - which overflows into other areas of life Once you relax around the timing of your goals, they start to come to you We need to make workplaces better for people - with flexible working arrangements and the way teams interact with each other. Key lessons/achievements from the last decade: Learning the ability to reflect on achievements Growth and clarity in purpose Slow and steady wins the race Established and grown a consulting agency Moving back to Australia 3 years ago The focus on nesting - setting himself up, renovations on the house and the business. What Ian predicts the next decade will hold: We have seen a shift from Business Process re-engineering, to transformation, to digital transformation and now to customer experience - we will see the further evolution of these concepts to an even more human-focused working environment. We have broken the back of the technology puzzle, the human extension of that puzzle is next on the menu The typical organisation shouldn’t exist by the end of 2029 Flexible working won’t be just an option - it’ll be across the board The need for services will be rapidly rethought. Clinical, educational, government systems are a work in progress and need to be revolutionised. Ian’s personal next-decade goals: Finish renovating and settle into his home, focusing on a sense of calmness and growing together with his relationship Working with people that he just connects with Building his personal and professional nest and reputation. Ian’s final message: It’s going to be ok - there is so much tension at the moment (professionally and personally), that is often created by the world we live in.

In this episode, I chat with Leanne Hughes, where she shares her insights from the last decade and predictions for the next. Leanne is a facilitator, runner and lifelong learner who values self-development and reflection. We explore the notion of purpose and the lifelong search for it, the unexpected positive career move that came from relocating to a regional area, plus we unpack insights Leanne has developed through hosting 100 podcast episodes and the conversations that have flowed there. Key episode highlights include: Work harder on yourself than you do on your job (thanks Jim Rohn!) Everything that we do in life serves a purpose but we just don’t know it until it happens Reflect on your individual behaviour when it comes to issues like climate change - it doesn’t start with the government, it starts with us. Key lessons from the last decade: Continually search for your purpose but be aware of the commonalities that link together The longest period you can plan for is only about a year ahead Energy > Time Embrace the uncertainty Pickup on signals from your body when things don't feel right and ask yourself questions to reflect on what may be going on for you. What Leanne predicts the next decade will hold:   The irony that - as technology improves, face to face connections are needed more than ever. Leanne’s personal next-decade goals: Diversifying what she does and honing in on zone of genius Channel her passion to stamp out the ‘presenteeism' culture in organisations - we can deliver outside of our cubicle Speaking in Bulgaria, and hanging out with Simon Sinek afterwards! Leanne’s final message: Be kind to yourself, find your own lane and stick to it. Reflect and re-listen to this episode, and answer Murray’s questions yourself - what comes up?

In this episode I chat with Andrew Sloan, who helps people upgrade for a faster future - so who better to chat with for this Heading into the Roaring 20s podcast series! Andrew reviews the last 15 years in technology advances, and how he is concluding the next decade will play out. Biotechnology, the internet of things and artificial intelligence are all on his radar as major advances over the next 10 years. He also explores the concept of 'slow down to fast up’. We can sign up to the quickness and the pace around us and move closer towards activity and potentially not taking ownership, but the message here is that you are in control, you are an autonomous agent. Most of us are in a space of being able to choose and take personal responsibility and accountability for our lives. Key episode highlights include: The key theme of how to be relevant to an uncertain and very complex future is to have a strong relationship with yourself. In a digital life, how can we become more human? Sitting within us is ancient architecture on how to feel grounded and safe, with ourselves and each other. A key thing that people should explore is the connection between their head, their heart and their gut, as the core rhythm of that ancient architecture. No matter how quick and fast-paced and how much noise is around us, we can choose to be present, we can choose to slow down, and maybe that will help us move quicker and faster towards where we wish to head. What Andrew predicts the next decade will hold: Complexity and Uncertainty as two forces on our human experience from Day One but have ramped. We need to be experts on our own uniqueness and open up in collaboration with others uniqueness. More humanness as we approach our digital future. To find out more about Andrew head to his website, or connect on LinkedIn. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #cliftonstrengths #strengths #health #ruok #mindset #roaring20s #planning #goals #futurist
In this episode, Luke Bayly walks us through some highlights of his last decade, including how he jumped from teaching to carpentry to now being a Strengths coach, where he facilitates others through the process that changed how he saw himself and connected with the world. Luke generously takes us through his journey of learning to value people more, and how he opened up his home to another three children that weren’t his own - equalling 7 children in total - and how his time as a carpenter added more ease in this transition.   Key episode highlights include: A key to creating more understanding with others and yourself is to introduce your themes before they introduce you, so we can view each other with more respect, appreciation and gratitude. Go out and try things - have loads of new experiences to find out what works for you. Elimination of misaligned experiences is the key to figure out what your purpose is. You want to make the best of your work, the most of your work (Marcus Buckingham). Key lessons from the last decade: We would not be who we are without each of our experiences. But we're more a product of our choices and commitments than our environment. You are your character, not your thoughts and emotions. Create the future - don't wait for it. Quit early, learn fast, don't take it personally. Learn from success! Not just failure. (When we succeed, we often switch off or get lazy). Engage, deep and real. Take responsibility for your own actions, motivation, character and future, but don't expect others to. What Luke predicts the next decade will hold: Human development leading to a major shift in careers and work culture. The ones who step outside of society's expectations and norms and embrace their unique talents and calling will thrive, establish their contribution - then reinvest their extra energy and resources in the community. Bigger picture. Luke’s personal goals for the next decade: To start writing books, speaking and working internationally. Travel with family. More running and bike riding, probably take on an Ironman triathlon. No more renovating! Luke's final message: Be you, multiplied. Not what someone else projects or expects of you. When we contribute from our passion and live in our Strengths, we empower each other to do the same; and we multiply each others' energy, power, effectiveness. You can find out more about Luke over on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #cliftonstrengths #strengths #health #ruok #mindset #roaring20s #planning #goals
Welcome to this new Inspired Energy podcast series - Heading into the Roaring 20s - where we showcase 15 conversations with coaches, leaders and consultants, who reflect on the last decade and anticipate what predictions may be happening in 2020. In this first installment, Murray looks back on his last decade covering work, business, relationships, family and wellness, and discusses his intentions in those areas for the coming decade. Standout lessons: We need to listen to our body - it provides signals all the time, tune in and listen. Focus on your strengths - whether personal or professional, the impact with their application brings confidence. Consistency - whatever it is, show up consistently. Money mindset - being aware how it shows up both for yourself and others. Be present to connect - as humans we have an inherent need to connect, and with current technology, it is getting harder to stay present. Hone and practice this skill. Abundance - the abundance mentality is so important, especially in business. The power of conversation - to influence the culture, the way in which you and others show up, whether in business or in life. Have the conversation BEFORE you need to have it. Sleep - getting enough of good quality sleep. Build your pack - are the people you associate with helping or hindering your success? Find joy - vital for our overall wellbeing. What are your top ten lessons learned in the last decade?

In this episode I chat with Kate Smyth, an Olympian and naturopath who is supporting athletes by providing a holistic service tailored to their unique requirements, focused around balance, performance and longevity. If you’re not a sporty person, please don’t discount this episode! There were so many parallels between life as an athlete, and the challenges we face in business and everyday life. Kate provided some amazing insights and practical examples of how she dealt with challenges in her running career and has then applied them to other aspects of her life, especially requiring performance. We chat about Kate’s incredible journey from gaining 20kg on a European holiday to running 30km stints in six months, how Japanese runner Naoko Takahashi changed the course of Kate’s sporting career, and how to manage identity attachment when it comes to anything in life. Key highlights on this episode include: Take objective reviews of your performance and note down 3 things you did well and 3 things you could improve. This helps to keep momentum in moving forward. Before any performance-driven task, utilise a ‘what if’ list - note down the possible negative scenarios and then the best case solutions. If you’re operating at 100% all the time, you’re not giving yourself space for rest, recovery and adaptation. To find out more about Kate, head on over to Athlete Sanctuary, or connect with her further on Facebook and Instagram. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #ruok #mindset #athelete #runner #marathonrunner #olympian #highperformance #naturopath
In this episode, I chat with Eddie Enever, a naturopath, meditation teacher and cancer survivor who is out there to spread a very important message surrounding stress, health and lifestyle. Eddie shares with us his incredible cancer journey and how the key to getting well was all about changing how he was showing up in life and business - and he drops some truth bombs along the way. We chat about the difference between acute stress and chronic persistent stress, the role of emotional coaching throughout a person’s cancer journey, plus hypothermic and hyperthermic treatments in the body and how they apply to different health situations. Key highlights on this episode include: As humans, we tend to jump into action when we can see and/or measure something, but when you can’t we can become complacent When two humans become vulnerable within a conversation, that’s when big shifts happen Breathwork needs to be your anchor whether it’s a physical, mental or emotional challenge. To find out more about Eddie head to his website, or connect with him further on Facebook and Instagram. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #ruok #mindset #cancer #cancerjourney #naturopath #menshealth
In this episode I chat with Wendy De Rosa, Intuitive Healer & Founder of the School of Intuitive Studies. We discuss what intuition actually is and how it happens, the difference between empathy and empathic intuition, and how social media has impacted on how people are awakening and seeking teachers in this area. We also explore the validation of intuition especially in the Western world driven by science, reason and intellect. We touch on staying grounded and resilient with the frantic pace of life, and how by leaning into the front part of our body - trying to problem-solve life - we can get depleted. But if we learn to lean back into meditation and contemplation and filling up from source, that can give us the life-force energy for resiliency. Key highlights on this episode include: Consciousness is rising - more people are waking up to their abilities and gifts. How cultivating a practice of grounding yourself is a way to tap into your intuition So much self-care is needed to manage the intensity of what happens in business, so pausing becomes crucial to stay connected to yourself. To learn more about Wendy and her courses head on over to the School of Intuitive Studies, or connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. #podcast #inspiredenergy #intuition #intuitivehealer #energy #energyhealer #mentalhealth #health #entrepreneur #business #personaldevelopment #gratitude #school #leadership
Leah Keogh is a Strengths-based coach based out of Seattle, Washington state. She works with teams and large groups on assessing and bringing out strengths to achieve peak performance in both individuals and organizations. In this episode, we chat about Strengths-based emotional development in teams, how Leah uses her strengths as a tool to intuitively figure out what teams and individuals need, and why using pre-work to answer questions before a team-based strengths exercise has been a game-changer for both facilitators, leaders and teams. Leah’s top ten strengths are: Connectedness, Positivity, Ideation, Input, Empathy, Futuristic, Belief, Individualisation, Developer, and Command. Even though Positivity was the most surprising strength for Leah, it was Connectedness that had such a large emotional component to it. She sees the big picture, the dynamics, what’s emotionally happening for people - and she fits those puzzle pieces together. Key highlights on this episode include: As a leader or manager, you need to ask yourself - how do you feel you’re showing up? Where are you successful? What areas could be running smoother? When it comes to blindspots with your strengths, you need to look at who you need on your team to help you excel. How do we collaborate more for greater success? Leadership strength is in knowing your team - your people - and many corporations are missing that people aspect. It’s not just about the numbers. You can find out more about what Leah does over on her website LK Strengths, or connect with her further on LinkedIn. #podcast #leadership #culture #teamwork #facilitator #strengths #cliftonstrengths #growth
In this episode I chat with Pete Holliday - a self confessed futurist - about why it’s important to consider the impact of future trends on organisations and leadership. Pete is an Organisational Futurist and Business Agility expert who helps to solve long-standing organisational challenges, empowering staff and developing progressive and agile mindsets. So what does it mean to be a future-focused organisation? Essentially, it comes down to being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to navigating disruption. We chat about future trends, how to build leaders who are fit for the future, upgrading organisational systems and the fine balance between the organisation’s values and what the market actually cares about. We also touch on the six traits of progressive organisations and getting back to the human element in the work environment. Key highlights on this episode include: - We need to blend values set by leaders at the top level AND the lower levels of an organisation. - When dealing with rapid change or disruption in an industry, businesses must review what they do, then recombine or re-organise it in a different way to create more value for the market. - Why coherence, cohesion and coordination are key aspects of future fit teams. You can find out more about Pete and what he does over on his website https://peteholliday.com/ or on LinkedIn. #podcast #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #futurist #futureofwork #vuca #lean #digital #agile #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment
In this episode, I chat to Jason Vidovich about human nature, vulnerability in leadership and the trends happening with our health in the quest for efficiency. Jason is an Organisational Development (OD) consultant with over 15 years experience working within the disciplines of OD, Human Resources and Learning and Development. He has consulted in this discipline, working and living throughout Australia and across the world. Throughout his travels, he has had some key awakenings about humans and their nature, both in work and play. At the core of it, people are people - no matter where you are in the world. We discuss leadership and vulnerability, how to bring that out in others, and how the recipient of training and coaching needs to be ready and willing to learn. There’s been many cases when an organisation hires a coach for their employees, and some take that as ‘there’s something wrong with me’ - the notion of feedback needs to flip from negative to positive. And finally, we chat about the power of active listening and the magic of words. Key highlights include: Take action on the weak signals, rather than waiting for situations to get worse We need to move past coaching as being seen as being implemented when you’re doing something wrong, and flip it to coaching being about helping you achieve your potential and unlock your performance Start to draw inspiration from your own life, what you already know and who you already look up to. Use this to shape your leadership role and style.

In the final part of the Leaders Who Give a Damn podcast series, we delve into the role of leaders creating a culture where people feel safe. Over this series, I partnered with Becky from Isogo Strong and if you know her at all, you know that she is a maven in the Strengths world. Becky partners with organisations across the USA to build cultures where people are more engaged and thrive. Becky also inspires couples and mums to look at life differently through a lens of strengths, focussing on what’s right and getting more flow back into their lives. Together, we get to chat about some aspects of leadership that are perhaps LEAST talked about yet have the opportunity to be MOST impactful in your role as leader. Whether you are in that role as a leader now or it is in your future, this series is for you. In this episode we discuss how creating safe spaces is all about trust – and freedom. The freedom to fail, to make mistakes, to have tough conversations and resolve conflict, and the freedom to talk about how you feel and not be judged by your leader or your peers. The greatest success with implementing this is everyone knowing the difference between freedom and expectation. We also discuss examples of spaces that are not safe and the further impact this had on the team and even the customers – it’s a long game that has far reaching effect. Other key takeaways from this episode include: The steps leaders need to take to start creating safe spaces – hint, it starts with how you show up! How we build a culture of trust and meeting the four needs of our followers. How to create an environment where there’s a collaborative and ongoing conversation.

Ciera Tyler is a podcaster and public speaker, with a commitment to living a purpose-driven life after growing up in a strengths-based family. In this episode of the Inspired Energy podcast we discuss her unique strengths story, as Ciera actually discovered her Gallup strengths at the ripe old age of 12, through the encouragement of her father - Strengths coach, Brandon Miller CEO of 34 Strong). Wise beyond her years, Ciera was able to hone her strengths before reaching adulthood and thus able to apply them with purpose from a very early age. That’s not to say it was all easy! Throughout the podcast we discuss the challenges in knowing your strengths so young and how that shapes how you show up to your peers, as well as how you show up to classic school activities and events. Ciera’s top 5 strengths are Competition, Activator, Communication, Strategic and Achiever. Even though Ciera’s favourite strength is Communication as it’s given her purpose, she had to be coached through other Influencer strengths - especially Command - to be able to apply herself positively in leadership roles both in school and in her current role. Other key highlights on this episode include... Everyone needs to be approached differently, based on their individual strengths and lens that they see things through. Navigating deep relationships with others when the majority of your top strengths lie in the Influencer domain. Just because you know your strengths doesn’t mean you don’t take responsibility for how you show up. It means you have an extra responsibility to know how you may be perceived. Connect further with Ciera over on her website or say hi on Instagram. #podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment #mentalhealth #health #school #family #love #gratitude
In the third part of this special Leaders Who Give A Damn podcast series, we unpack the notion of doing less in the realm of leadership. Over this series, I partnered with Becky from Isogo Strong and if you know her at all, you know that she is a maven in the Strengths world. Becky partners with organisations across the USA to build cultures where people are more engaged and thrive. Becky also inspires couples and mums to look at life differently through a lens of strengths, focussing on what’s right and getting more flow back into their lives. Together, we get to chat about some aspects of leadership that are perhaps LEAST talked about yet have the opportunity to be MOST impactful in your role as leader. Whether you are in that role as a leader now or it is in your future, this series is for you. When you think about the role of leaders, there are a broad range of responsibilities, tasks and activities that leaders need to do. Often leaders can feel overwhelmed with all the stuff they need to do and how this gets in the way of the role of being a leader for the people that need their leadership every day. There is a different way and in this conversation, Becky and I explore achieving a bigger, more effective impact in your leadership through doing less. We explore why it is so easy to stay in the notion of ‘busy’ especially where you are using the momentum of the busyness to keep all the plates spinning. But is it about doing and rushing and being busy…or should it be about enjoying the journey and being connected with people, too? With busyness we can often get caught up in excess things filling our day. We need to start by asking, is this element that is filling my day really needed? We can also explore Professor Sidney Dekker’s concept of asking yourself (or your team!), “What’s the stupidest thing I have to do?” to open up the conversation around what is not effective in a role or task, and perhaps do something about it. Providing opportunities where your team feels like they can be more effective by doing less is also an important part of leadership. It was such a great conversation, with real takeaways that you can apply right away,, some of the key highlights on this episode include… · How can we implement the Lean strategy within leadership - achieving more with less and removing waste. · Strategies to analyse your daily tasks and achieve more through less. · The leadership mindset to embrace to be an effective leader, here’s hint, it’s not always about doing more! ;-) So, catch this conversation about Leaders Who Give a Damn on your favourite podcast app. Check out www.leaderswhogiveadamn.com to download your free infographic of 90 tips to be a Leader Who Gives A Damn. Also check out the quiz to find out if you're a leader who gives a damn! Next up is the final conversation in this four-part series, where we explore the importance in leadership in creating safe spaces. #podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #leadership #selfleadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leaderswhogiveadamn #lwgad #professionaldevelopment #personaldevelopment
In Part 2 of the Leaders Who Give a Damn podcast series, we delve into the importance in how you show up, how relationships are so interconnected and affect each other. We discuss just how much your personal relationships impact the relationships you have at work, and why we also mustn't forget our relationship with ourselves AND our own health as well.  Are you picking up and taking action on early health signs, just as you would take action on metrics not being delivered on at work? We also jump into planning and preparation, including how your physical environment looks (inbox, desk space, etc), so you can continue to show up and give your best to your team, your family and your self, and why there is an important emphasis on a solid and inspiring morning routine to get your mind into work mode - including being purposeful about your journey to work and how you spend it. Key highlights include: Whether you like it or not, as a leader, you’re on show. You influence others whether you like it or not. It becomes a ’trickle-down’ culture. Why it’s super important to prepare and plan for the next day or next week, reflecting on what has gone well and what the new focus is. As a leader, showing up for your team is directly affected by your relationships outside of the work environment, how you treat your health, the status of your environment and how you show up for meetings. Stay tuned for Part 3 of this 4 part series, where we focus on being a better leader through doing less.

Leaders Who Give A Damn - a special podcast series When Becky Hammond and I get together it’s like a powerhouse conversation, and this special Leaders Who Give A Damn (LWGAD) episode is no different. We discuss what are the little things that superstar leaders do on a daily basis (and your mindset around it), how to lead when your Strengths don’t lie within the relationship building category, and how breath work can enhance leadership skills. We also delve into the awareness that leaders have around where they’re investing their time, and how much time they’re investing into the technical aspects of their role versus the leadership elements of the role. And why every time you have a chance to interact with someone in a small way, starts to create a culture - whether you are present to it or not. Key highlights include: Why you need to have a workplace morning routine too - it sets the tone for the culture of the day Leadership is not just a role, it’s not an aspect that you 'tick the box’ on a daily/weekly/monthly basis - it’s a way to show up Why the old style working relationship between managers and people isn’t working - the practice of command and control is just not inspiring. This is part one of our four part series on Leaders Who Give A Damn. Stay tuned for more episodes in this series where we discuss more topics of leadership and making a difference.

In this episode I catch up with another awesome Strengths coach - Heidi Convery! Heidi is a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach and founder of Flourish LLC, a strengths-based coaching business focused on putting purpose back in the workplace.  I loved getting insights from Heidi about the Texas culture and how that influences corporate culture. We chat about why Heidi went into business for herself, her struggles with profitability and pricing your skills when YOU are the capital. We also discuss how Heidi leads with Includer (her other top 5 include Activator, Learner, Input and Belief), and why she strongly feels that everyone needs to know how much they matter. It is with this that Heidi prefers to work with smaller organisations so that she can get to know and impact each and every person - it suffices to say she is creating a huge ripple effect with her work! Key highlights on this episode include: The purpose of a coach is not to be there forever, it is to teach you how to do it for yourself so that you can take charge of your development. There is a need to get excited about WHO you are. It is not just who we are as an adult, but who we have always been our whole life. Inspired energy is that fizzy feeling inside of us that bubbles up - like a carbonated drink. You need to tap into that. To connect further with Heidi, visit her website or say hi on Instagram. #podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #gallup #leadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leadership
TyAnn is a success guide and strengths guru, whose transformational strengths-based coaching and training empowers employees to discover the value of their unique abilities so they can become more engaged, build stronger relationships, and authentically show up in their daily lives. We cover a lot of topics in this episode, with so many gems thrown in!Including why TyAnn's time at Dell was more valuable than her MBA, how getting out of your environment and existing in a different part of the world opens your mind to other ways of being and thinking, and we dive deep into energy vampires (and energy-sucking tasks) and what you can do to mitigate this. Key highlights on this episode include: Companies need to ask - what does good look like? What does great look like? How can we measure success in this? What would it look like a year from now if we haven’t addressed this issue? Why the futuristic strength allows those gifted with it to see the future in a very tangible state, showing others how they can see the future beyond an initial hurdle. Energy is like a bank account, it’s not infinite and it gets depleted. If you spend your energy in a negative ROI way, you’re not going to have energy for the awesome things in your life. TyAnn’s top Strengths include Maximizer, Significance, Learner, Communication and Futuristic. And we’ll leave you with TyAnn’s definition of strengths based leadership (as it’s epic!): How do I go from knowing my superpowers into how do I understand the superpowers of my team and harness those for the best possible result together. How do I step up my leadership so that it becomes servant leadership to them - I have no success without their success. You can connect with TyAnn over on her website, on Twitter and LinkedIn.  #podcast #strengths #cliftonstrengths #gallup #leadership #culture #teamwork #entrepreneur #inspiration #inspiredenergy #coaching #coach #business #leadership
Becky Hammond is the founder of Isogo Strong and lives and breathes her company’s mission of “fueling life-changing stories through the power of YOUR unique and brilliant Strengths” - not just in the workplace but with parenting too. We talk collaboration, especially in the context of trust and fairness, and dive deep into utilising the Strengths perspective when it comes to more productive parenting. The concept of generating emotional templates is also discussed - where a person develops an emotional reference to what happens in a situation, and applies that to future events - and how we can fascinate positive emotional templates. Becky’s top 5 Strengths are Achiever, Arranger, Learner, Belief and Connectedness. Key highlights include: Why 1:1 time is so important, not just with our children but also with members of the tribe we lead in the workplace. It becomes a safe place for conversations to happen - including the hard ones The importance of creating a culture where it’s safe for someone to put their hand up and say 'I made a mistake’ Becky’s best advice for new leaders: know yourself, have good self-awareness, get a coach (or someone to keep you accountable) and be vulnerable. You can connect with Becky on Instagram @isogostrong, on her Isogo TV channel, and over on her website. Plus: curious to know about your own strengths?

We talk tips and tricks for facilitating successful workshops, including how to make the most out of conferences as both speaker AND attendee, plus her journey from corporate to solopreneurship and why you need to integrate your ‘work’ hours in with the flow of your life. A Harry Potter theme starts to emerge and we discuss how she turns muggles (people not yet exposed to her work) into wizards with all the tools needed to navigate and implement learnings back in the workplace. We also open up the discussion on the similarities and differences between particular strengths being more prominent in certain countries - you can find out more here. Leanne’s top 5 strengths are: Ideation, Maximizer, Futuristic, Activator and Positivity. Key highlights on this episode include... Why knowing your strengths can be super helpful in job interviews If you want to make an impact, start by impacting the people that are directly reporting to you, start conversations and be a good human - the engagement and culture takes care of itself. Why the key role of the facilitator is to create a space where everyone can get as much out of a workshop as possible And why ‘inspired energy’ can be best described as the opposite of a Harry Potter dementor!
