Practical experienced based discussions with CEOs and senior executives from around the world on how to approach management challenges and why this is important to you and your organisation.
This week Kim and Fulyana react to an article which included four questions that gave rise to a host of ideas and responses, leading in turn to some insights into career paths, management and job satisfaction.
The article is below the podcast. Also below is a link to our episode about finding your “why” with Simon Sinek.

Simon Sinek and Finding Your “Why”
How Can You “Thrive” In A Start Up?
In a slightly different direction of discussion this week, Kim and Fulyana explore the personal challenges and rewards when you are part of a start up. This might be a new team in a large organisation or a completely new venture for yourself or a small team.
How do you know you are achieving personal growth? Should you plan an exit strategy? What is the personal cost for a start up? Is it boring or exciting?
How Do You Feel About “Robust” Meetings?
After 16 months of distanced recording, Kim and Fulyana meet across the table to discuss the value of “robust debate” in meetings. How do you keep the personal issues out of this type of debate? How much of the discussion forms part of the meeting record?
Are robust discussions encouraged in your organisation? Does it work?
Bragging At Work (About Work)
Do your work colleagues know all the skills you bring to the table? Have you ever thought you could offer a skill but hesitated because it wasn’t something you learned with this particular organisation?
This week Kim and Fulyana explore what it means to “brag” about your skills in the workplace.
How can leaders find out the range of skills they have in a team?
Making The Most Of Your Skills
Fulyana continues her “interview” with Kim, this week covering how and why you should talk about the skills you have that may not yet be utilised by an organisation, whether this is a volunteer or paid role.
We also emphasise, yet again, the value of feedback – negative or positive – to keep communication lines clear.
