    High Achiever

    High Achiever

    Kris Grant is a CEO who is passionate about leadership. Reaching the C-level at just 32 and a single mum to two young children, Kris was a high achiever who worked hard.
    Honing her management skills while leading over 50,000 staff throughout Asia Pacific at a global talent management firm where she held the position of CFO and COO, Kris came to a cross road. Unable to change the behaviours of the old men at the top and presented with a fresh opportunity to head up ASPL Group, a leading management consulting, training and recruitment organisation, Kris took a leap of faith and hasn’t looked back.
    With a leadership team comprising 90% females, Kris has developed a team of highly engaged staff, and a roster of industry experts who work to deliver co-designed goals for a national client portfolio which includes all levels of government, major telcos and commercial clients in the banking, mining and health sectors.
    Kris joins me to discuss balancing career and family, flexible work arrangements and her passion – leadership!

    Who Dares Wins

    Who Dares Wins

    This week Gabby Ianniello joins me to chat about the things we wish we had known. As an educator and the founder of The Adulting Manual, a platform where twenty-somethings can learn the life lessons they weren't taught in school, Gabby hears some recurring themes and we ponder if the education system will ever give us the skills we really need. Gabby is also the host of Corporate Quitter, a podcast where entrepreneurs and side-hustlers share their stories and provide listeners with actionable steps to help them achieve their own goals so we discuss some of the lessons learned and what will happen to society if we all become corporate quitters.

    The Ultimate Ultimatum

    The Ultimate Ultimatum

    Upon completing her studies as an international student in Canada, Jette Stubbs was faced with the ultimate ultimatum – find a job in 90 days or leave the country. With no family to lean on and less than $100 in her bank account, Jette quickly realised she had a ton of skills but no idea how to market herself.
    Jette joins me to discuss how she went from applying for 100 jobs and receiving no response to finding her dream career. Jette’s path to success has not been smooth in fact there have been many obstacles to overcome including her mother getting robbed and stabbed and her father being diagnosed with dementia when she was just 25. Becoming a full time carer overnight, Jette eventually realised that she didn’t just want a job, she needed to find a way to make money through the alignment of her lifestyle and values.
    If you would like to know more about Jette you can check out her website JetteStubbs.com, listen to her podcast or follow her on Instagram or LinkedIn and you can read more at www.ifonlyyouknewpodcast.com.au
