JB and Ant spend some time looking back at the old episodes before talking about this week's leadership news. This week, we talk leadership ethics in an uncertain world, digital leadership post lockdown and some listener questions on how to deal with a critical employee, but who behaves like a ..... (we can't type the word here we'd like to use)....
This week, once again JB and Ant talk all about latest news for Leaders, including a study why leaders fail; the shareholders vs people conundrum, and digital times ahead for L&D. Oh and a new game...!
We have no idea on the title either.
Another week, another bevy of headlines for discussion and debate. This week, Ant and JB tackle the leadership pressure for us to 'bring people back to the offices' and what it means to people and business's. Also - Ant throws in some leadership competencies to debate. Finally JB explores the left and right side of your brain...
all for your pleasure!
So here goes. In a world that needs to evolve, we (based on a listener suggestion) this week discuss the 'leadership news' with our opinion and thoughts on pressing news articles from around the world. We talk mental health with long term remote working, millennials and their dominance of the workplace in the next 5 years, communication of leaders in the workplace and the resistance of business sending their people back to the office.... is 'WFH' becoming permanent?
that and your questions...!
Yes - you read the title correctly!
This week we explore the fine line between leaders not engaging their people enough, through to too much, ultimately resulting in stress. How do we use a comfortable level of pressure to maintain colleague engagement? Arouse or apply pressure - you decide the word... plus (as ever) your questions answered!
Back with another edition of - well JB does up his shed, and Ant tries to buy a house, podcast... plus the listener questions and some leadership chatter...
This week we debate the thought that maybe leaders could be more 'fixed minded' in the ways they work since Covid 19. Uncertainty, personal stress and anxiety all playing their part. That and your wonderful listener questions... (as ever!)
This week, between JB having his leg nursed at the Doctors, Ant and JB discuss the management speak that drives the majority of employees wild... why do managers do it? How do we use them more intentionally?
That and an abundance of questions!
We all know how tricky it is, the taboo of politics - especially as a leader, if you're asked for a view on the situation / the way you vote etc. With passion of politics so rife, and the polarised views of so many JB and Ant interview Iain Dale, a British Broadcaster, Businessman, Author, Co-host of the smutty and genius 'For The Many' Podcast with Jacqui Smith, and Publisher.
In the world where we're working remotely, what can we learn from broadcasting that can benefit us leaders? Running a meeting in a room alone, is not hugely different to a radio/TV studio. JB and Ant kick around hints and tips of their radio background that helps you get your comms across like a TV/Radio Presenter pro!
