    Mastering Risk: Improving every decision

    Mastering Risk: Improving every decision

    Episode #141 // Understanding risk, and being able to respond in a manner that’s both appropriate and proportional to the level of risk is a fundamental capability for leaders.


    When we talk about judgement in leadership and decision making, a lot of it comes down to how well we can assess and respond to risk, given the uncertainty that faces us at any given point in time.


    This episode brings the discipline of risk management to life, with a number of examples that take the mystery out of the subject. It will help you to implement a fit-for-purpose risk management approach that’s sure to enhance your decision-making.


    I've also created a FREE PDF downloadable to accompany this episode 'The 6 Principles of Good Risk Management' which you can download here: https://www.yourceomentor.com/episode141#download

    Horrible Bosses and Managing Up: Q&A with Marty and Em

    Horrible Bosses and Managing Up: Q&A with Marty and Em

    Episode 140 // In this week’s Q&A, we’re going to cover two questions about the subtle art of managing upwards and how to deal with a passive aggressive boss.


    We do get an awful lot of questions about how to deal with those leaders above you, so much so that we’re actually planning out a mini-course about it!


    In the meantime, the two questions we’ve chosen for this episode cover the main issues that we see. The first question from Genevieve is about how to influence upwards when you feel as though you don’t have any basis for doing so, and the second from Chris is about working under a passive aggressive boss.


    We cover a lot of ground in this one, dialling it right down to the practical questions you can ask your boss today to better influence up the line. If you've got a horrible boss, this episode is going to give you the perspective and practical tips you need to move forward with confidence!


    A few other useful podcasts that we mention during this episode are:


    Episode #132 What do CEOs Do?
    Episode #134 Being More Strategic
    Episode #138 It's Not WHAT You Know
    Episode #110 Getting In The Arena

    Fighting Fear: What does it take?

    Fighting Fear: What does it take?

    Episode #139 // This week we take on a great listener question that will be on many people’s minds at the moment.


    Fear has been stoked to extraordinary levels during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the subsequent impact of lockdowns and travel bans on many businesses has been severe. Many people are living in fear, as they see their companies struggling to survive, and are faced with the harsh reality of their own lack of job security.


    What impacts are felt when individuals operate from a position of fear? What can we do to keep our fear in check? And what are the techniques for helping the people around us to keep going, so that we don’t see catastrophic impacts at the organisational level?


    This episode offers some practical guidance for dealing with the fear that we all feel at times like these.

    It’s Not WHAT You Know, It’s WHO You Know!

    It’s Not WHAT You Know, It’s WHO You Know!

    Episode #138 // I recently had a robust after-dinner discussion over this old expression. It’s often said by someone who’s trying to explain the reasons behind another person’s success. And, yes, it’s designed to somehow diminish their achievements.


    It implies that learning and knowledge are inherently more noble and worthwhile than building relationships… or perhaps there’s an element of favoritism or nepotism at play… or that anyone who leverages their connections is (at best) taking a shortcut and (at worst) doing something vaguely distasteful.


    This episode explores why the attitude that it’s not WHAT you know, it’s WHO you know can be damaging, and takes a deep dive into some of the key areas that will really determine the level of success you enjoy, in any area of your life.

    Should I Stay or Should I Go? Making a career move

    Should I Stay or Should I Go? Making a career move

    Episode #136 // How do you know when it’s time to leave an organisation?


    Like almost every question in leadership, the answer is - it depends. Every situation is completely different, and only you know the factors that affect you: the workplace culture, your personal circumstances, the impact your boss has on you, and your ultimate career aspirations.


    But wouldn’t it be great to have a framework that could help you make smart decisions whenever you face a career dilemma?!
    This episode provides that framework, and some scenarios to help you figure out how to apply it.
