    In these 'crazy' times it's easy to get bogged down in your personal bunker, your workload, your priorities, your family, your challenges, your "stuff".

    And yet, more than ever, it's during these times that your leadership abilities need to be focused on how you can support others, help them grow and help them stay connected to community. In the words of Bryan Ferry "Let's Stick Together".

    Here's this week's question:

    "Can you provide an overview of servant leadership and how it can be applied in a leadership role within a public-serving organisation?"

    In this episode, I outline what "servant" leadership is all about, who you need to care about and provide a couple of tips on how to apply servant leadership in your life.

    Enjoy.

    In this episode of Mentoring with Mitch, I offer some ideas on how to deal with one of the most difficult situations you'll encounter in your career - the inappropriate behaviour of your boss.

    Here's the question:
    "When your organisation indicates there is an important inclusion and diversity initiative but a senior leader that is great at 'managing up' is not supporting this with their insensitive style, in fact from the ground up is the cause of a larger than expected staff turnover, is there anything you can do to effect change?"

    So if you're not interested in "Waiting on the World to Change", I overview 3 options of dealing with it:
    -Escalating
    -Escaping
    -Embracing

    We'll then go through 3 tried and tested steps on how to deal with the issue with the understanding that by not "moving towards the tension" things can only get worse.

    Enjoy.

    ----

    In this episode, I share some ideas on what to do if you feel stuck in your career. You know that feeling which is so beautifully expressed by Queen in their song "I want to break free!".

    Here's the question:

    "As a leader, it is important to grow those around you. However with little ability to move up for me personally and having giving opportunities to those under you to grow and develop and they are now well beyond you in terms of influence and almost status what would you suggest I do to continue my own development?"

    The way I see it there are three options. That of IN, OUT and UP.

    I'm sure this weeks episode will get you thinking about your own career and how the grass may not always be greener on the other side.

    "We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time."
    -T.S. Eliot -

    What a great question we have this week. In essence, it's "Is a human enterprise possible?".

    Here's the question:

    "My aspiration is to build a team and organisational culture
    that is kind and compassionate, that is high performing and
    results-driven. Often I am told that it is not possible for these
    qualities to co-exist. Do you think it is possible, and have you
    come across any successful (and unsuccessful) examples?"

    In this episode, I passionately reinforce the idea that you can have a kind and compassionate organisation AND still provide outstanding results.

    And it starts with servant leadership, a strong connection to a service-based mission and loving the people you work with. Or as Stephen Stills taught us: "Love the One You're With!"

    I hope you enjoy a couple of key ideas to help you build 'the human enterprise' in your workplace.
    Enjoy.

    Mentoring With Mitch - Episode 2: Know When To Fold Them

    Mentoring With Mitch - Episode 2: Know When To Fold Them

    To watch the original video visit: http://www.thehumanenterprise.com.au/2021/03/31/mentoring-with-mitch-episode-2-know-when-to-fold-them/

    ----

    In this episode, we explore when to "cut your people loose", "let them go", or the best I've ever heard is "free up their career".

    Here's the question:

    Whilst acknowledging the process and legal requirements of
    Fair Work Australia and the cost of recruitment & retraining;
    what are the triggers that should determine when a manager
    should continue to persist with an underperforming employee
    using a Performance Management Plan (or other techniques)
    to the possible detriment of the rest of the team,
    or decide to "cut them loose"?

    If you're truly committed to creating a human enterprise, no matter how underperforming the player, I believe there should always be a part of you that never feels too good about such decisions.

    How do you lessen that feeling? What do you need to consider before you make such a call?

    I give you B.A.S.K. - A simple tool from the human enterprise, which you can use to analyse performance gaps. It will also help you feel more certain you are making the "right" decision.

    The 'right' decision in regards to regulations, the 'right' decision for the individual and the 'right' decision for your team and the organisation.

    ----

    In this first episode of Mentoring with Mitch, I draw on the brilliant work of Barry Oshry to answer the following question:

    "Working in a large organisation, there are lots of times where upper management requirements and staff needs conflict. Working in middle management can feel like being the meat in the sandwich. Do you have any advice on how to work best with these conflicting needs?"

    If you sometimes feel like the meat in the sandwich (and believe me, even the most senior leaders experience this) then where you put your energy is essential. In this video, I give you advice on how to manage energy in these situations and also share 3 strategies for speaking with "tops".
