    Leadership Lessons from the Bushfire Crisis - Julie Hyde

    Leadership Lessons from the Bushfire Crisis - Julie Hyde

    Firstly, Happy New Year! Welcome back to Series 2 of Making It Count.

    For many in Australia, the year certainly hasn't started well. It's been heartbreaking to see our Great Southern Land burning with the Vic and NSW fires consuming lives, property, wildlife and livelihoods in it's path. It's devastating and my heart goes out to all affected. I just can't fathom what these people have been going through and witnessing at this time.

    On a positive note, in tough times, the true Australian spirit shines through the darkness and I am in awe of the courage and dedication shown by our fire fighters and the many volunteers who are helping at this time and beyond.

    As with any crisis situation, there are lessons that we can take out of this dreadful situation as leaders. That is what this podcast is focused on. There is one man I wouldn't want to be in the shoes of right now and that's our Prime Minister! I'm not about to make judgments or play the blame game here, there's plenty of that going on. However, I have used this first podcast of season 2 to talk about the three biggest lessons I have learnt as a leader from this situation.

    The message from people both directly and indirectly impacted is very loud and clear and these voices provide a clear indication of what people are looking for from their leader in tough times. These are:

    • Presence
    • Empathy
    • Support


    If you would like to assist the wonderful organisations that are assisting the victims, both human and wildlife, during this time, here are some that you can consider:

    Bendigo Bank (Vic Govt endorsed and donated)

    Kangaroo Island Mayor Appeal

    CFA - Country Fire Association (Vic)

    RFS - Rural Fire Service (NSW)

    Salvation Army


    Zoos Vic has set up an emergency fund

    Wildlife Rescue - WIRES

    Ep32: Julie Hyde - Top 10 Leadership Themes of 2019

    Ep32: Julie Hyde - Top 10 Leadership Themes of 2019

    This year, I've had 24 guests on the Making It Count podcast. The guests are from a diverse range of industry and profession, have been incredibly generous and shared so much value to our listeners. I am very grateful to them all.

    It was interesting to reflect back on them because what I realised is even though their experience is diverse and different and they are at very different stages of business or career there were some key leadership themes that really shone through which are very powerful.

    So given we are facing into not only a new year but a new decade, I thought I'd share these with you so you can also take these into account when thinking about how you are going to choose to be as a leader in the new year and throughout your 20's! Yes, some of us get to live these again, much wiser!

    Thank you so much for your support this year and I truly hope you have enjoyed the podcasts and the insights shared. As always, if there are any topics you would like to hear about or if you have any guest suggestions please let me know.

    Looking forward to chatting with you back here in 2020!

Real people with experience to learn from

One of the best things about this podcast, other than the learnings it offers, is that the people are real and relatively unknown. Yet they’ve had amazing careers with insights into productivity, leadership and resilience
