    Managing Natural Tensions: The balance of value

    Managing Natural Tensions: The balance of value

    Episode #117 // Every organisation inherently has a number of natural tensions between different groups and functions - finance vs marketing; sales vs operations; operations vs asset management; IT and… virtually everyone!


    Rather than trying to eliminate these tensions, leaders should concentrate on using them to get better outcomes. It’s through nurturing and managing natural tensions that you’ll find a balance - this will improve your decision-making, and ultimately create the greatest value for your organisation.


    There are no black-and-white answers to this question, but there are some practical principles and philosophies you can employ. In this episode, I provide some useful tips for managing natural tensions in order to improve the value outcomes of your team.

    Receiving Feedback: Accept the gift graciously

    Receiving Feedback: Accept the gift graciously

    Episode #116 // We tend to talk a lot about how important it is for leaders to give their people feedback, but focus much less on how to receive feedback. 


    In this episode, we turn the tables a little. All great leaders were first great followers, and had to experience how life felt on the other side of the table. Listening and learning should never stop, no matter how high up you go.


    We look at how human nature can get in the way of our ability to hear the feedback that’s given to us. We then examine the efficacy of formal feedback mechanisms, and I also give some practical tips for how to receive feedback graciously.


    We've put together a free PDF resource that pulls out the key takeaways from this episode, which you can easily download at https://www.yourceomentor.com/episode116

    Does Innovation Create Value? Sexier isn't always better

    Does Innovation Create Value? Sexier isn't always better

    Episode #115 // Innovation has become a very overused term, which can be found in the bullsh!t bingo dictionary between agility, and strategic. The term has become so hackneyed that it can sometimes be almost meaningless. 


    In this episode, I strip away some of the mystique around innovation, and offer some practical guidelines for managing the innovation process in your organisation.


    The value of major market disruption is obvious, albeit risky. But how do you create value from a continuous improvement culture, without jeopardising the core value outcomes of your formal work program?

    Making a Role Your Own: Play to your strengths

    Making a Role Your Own: Play to your strengths

    Episode #114 // Starting a new role can be a little daunting, whether you’re being promoted to lead the team you used to be part of, or moving to a completely different organisation in a new industry.


    Every new role requires you to go through a deliberate process to set yourself up, and to establish the right expectations with your stakeholders - your boss, your peers, your team and, depending on the role, your customers and suppliers.


    As someone who transitioned through lots of roles during my corporate career, I want to lay out a bit of a roadmap for how to transition into any new role, play to your strengths, and stamp your own individual excellence on it.


    So in this episode I’ll cover three key areas: 
    1. How to match your skills, capabilities, and experience to any new role
    2. What you can do to establish yourself as a credible performer, under any circumstances and; 
    3. Some tips for drawing a line in the sand and setting or resetting expectations for your team

    Unlocking Diversity: The Power of Difference

    Unlocking Diversity: The Power of Difference

    Episode #113 // In the last couple of decades, we’ve seen an increasing focus on embracing diversity. The emphasis on this is often limited to gender diversity, as we look to achieve increased representation of women in senior leadership positions. But even though gender is clearly a priority area, diversity needs to go way further if we truly want to achieve better outcomes.


    There are two distinct steps to harnessing the power of diversity. The first is to select and retain the right people in your team, and the second is to tap into the diverse capability that you’ve assembled.


    In this episode, we look at what really constitutes diversity, and provide some tips and suggestions for unlocking it. There’s not much point in having a diverse team unless you can liberate people’s unique perspectives, experiences, and insights to improve organisational outcomes, and ultimately deliver greater value.

    Is Gut Feel a Thing? Q&A With Marty & Em

    Is Gut Feel a Thing? Q&A With Marty & Em

    Episode #112 // We get an enormous number of questions on making better decisions, but we haven’t really addressed this subject directly in quite a while. Ultimately your ability to make better decisions, faster than your competitors provides the foundation for execution excellence.


    In this week’s episode, we go back to Q&A format, where Em and I pick up a couple of questions from our podcast listeners on the finer points of decision making. 


    First, Olivia asks if there’s a place for ‘gut feel’ in the decision making process.


    Then we answer Tim’s question on how to manage a situation where a decision that’s already been made by one of your people needs to be reversed.

Couldn’t be happier with this

Great information put in short clear context. I have found myself going back as I implement learnings to ensure I have taken in all of the information available.

Crusando ,

One of the best

I listen to many podcasts. This is definitely one of the best and most practical leadership series I have come across. Great work to a power Dad & Daughter duo!
