    Radio Show #396: Creating a Better Leadership Cohort for the Future

    Radio Show #396: Creating a Better Leadership Cohort for the Future

    Special Guest: Nigel Girling: Senior Consultant, Inspirational Development Group

    In the previous two shows, Nigel proposed that ‘engagement is not the point’, that we should instead be seeking to build better organisations doing better work with better outcomes to create a better world – and that to do this we must ‘transform our leaders first’.

    He then went on to say that the primary purpose of an organisation – even in commercial business – should not be to make profits or provide returns to shareholders. 

    In this concluding piece, he attempts to bring those themes together to talk about the impact leaders & leadership should seek to have on the world that comes next. He explores the way people become managers & leaders, what drives them to do so and what we can do to create a better leadership cohort for the future and to create a new paradigm of leadership.

    Join us as we discuss the impact leaders and leadership should seek to have on the world that comes next.

    Radio Show #395: Fostering Autonomy in the Workplace

    Radio Show #395: Fostering Autonomy in the Workplace

    Special Guest: Allison Williams: The Law Firm Mentor

    Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a Family Law Trial Attorney, and Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, Ms. Williams practices exclusively family law, including adoptions, divorce, domestic violence, child support matters including UIFSA, child custody including UCCJEA, DYFS hearings (both Superior Court and OAL hearings, and including abuse/neglect and guardianships), and appeals.

    Considered to be a Thought Leader in the field of Child Welfare Law, Ms. Williams founded and manages a BLOG specific to this complex area of the law. This resource has been recognized by the News Media as an authority for the parent defence position in matters before the New Jersey Supreme Court.

    Join us and our special guest, Allison Williams, known as the Law Firm Mentor, as we dive into the oh so sexy topic of Fostering Autonomy in the Workplace. We have all heard that approximately 70% of the American workforce is disengaged at work. This comes not from a lack of compensation or lack of a highly systematized business, but from the leadership’s failure to foster the number one desired attribute of the workplace for today’s workforce. You guessed it… That attribute is autonomy. But how does one create a workplace centred on employee autonomy when those in management and leadership want everyone to work consistently performing their roles? Allison will give us some key strategies to implement to create both a highly systematized workplace, as well as a highly autonomous employee experience.

    Radio Show #393: Mission to Drive Performance Culture

    Radio Show #393: Mission to Drive Performance Culture

    Special Guest: Pam Schmid: Graze's People Director

    Pam is super keen on two things, people and food! She loves values led organisations where she feels she can make a difference.

    Pam has been at Graze for nearly two years as People Director. The best thing about working for Graze are the people and the endless snacks. Since joining the company, she has been driving an agenda of enhancing the engagement & commitment, clearly supporting the teams through the challenges of COVID and really dialling up the performance culture - taking a data driven, but people centric approach. Graze recently launched new values which really talk to the culture of Graze, with an eye to the stretch they want to achieve as a company.

    Prior to working for Graze, Pam did a good stint at Kerry Foods across various roles supporting commercial and head office functions. Highlights include; firstly, working on company values and the Kerry story, to bring these to life with people that felt like family. As well as the work partnering with the functional teams, driving core capability and behaviour change. Pam learnt that positive energy and enabling small teams to make a big difference on key business topics in their way, amplifies the change you are making.

    Join us as we discuss the blend of data and imagination that is unique to Graze.

    Radio Show #392: Building Better Organisations with Better Outcomes

    Radio Show #392: Building Better Organisations with Better Outcomes

    Special Guest: Nigel Girling: Senior Consultant, Inspirational Development Group and EFS TAGs Steering Group Member

    In show #389 in April, Nigel proposed that ‘engagement is not the point’, that we should instead be seeking to build better organisations doing better work with better outcomes to create a better world - and that to do this we must ‘transform our leaders first’.

    In the second of his three episodes, Nigel takes that further to suggest that, if we are to achieve this aim of better work, better outcomes for a better world, then the primary purpose of an organisation - even in commercial business - should not be to make profits or provide returns to shareholders. 

    The first show ruffled a few feathers, this one should cause even more ‘debate’.

    Join us as we discuss what should be the primary purpose of an organisation.
