    Episode 189 | How To Raise Tech Healthy Humans | Daniel Sih

    Episode 189 | How To Raise Tech Healthy Humans | Daniel Sih

    After more than 7 years of podcasting, this might be the most important episode Team Guru has ever produced.

    Raising tech healthy humans is the biggest challenge parents face today.

    Technology is an unavoidable part of life. It’s difficult to raise kids who experience humanity in its fullness - because the online world has a gravitational pull. It’s like being caught in a riptide.

    "The pull of culture is to draw us into being constantly online - particularly our kids. If we don’t do anything our kids will be sucked out to sea."

    Our challenge is to raise humans who have a love of life - a life that includes the tech world - but goes beyond the tech world. It’s hard for parents to find that balance. That’s the grand challenge.

    Your Life Story: Special Episode

    Your Life Story: Special Episode

    How do you tell your life story in a way your family can keep forever?

    If your family is anything like mine - the older generations share stories and experiences to the kids, who barely seem interested.

    By the time we're mature enough to develop a keen interest in our family's past, it can be too late. The older generations have passed and family stories fade and eventually evaporate with the years.

    I want to do something about that.

    I've created Your Story Pod to help people tell their life story. We record it in quality audio and create a sound package they can share and keep in their family - forever.

    In this special episode of the Team Guru Podcast I want to tell you all about it and share some snippets from the first few interviews I've done.

    Real people. Real stories. For families to keep forever.

    Episode 188 | How Reading Fiction Will Make You A Better Leader | Melanie Bell

    Episode 188 | How Reading Fiction Will Make You A Better Leader | Melanie Bell

    How can reading fiction make you a better leader?

    This is a topic we have never covered before on the Team Guru Podcast - how reading fiction can contribute to our development as a leader.

    Not only is it a convincing thesis - reading great stories really can help our personal development - but it was also a wonderful opportunity for me to geek out with a fellow lover of reading.

    Melanie Bell is indeed a lover of literature. She is also a leadership expert who has honed in on this powerful concept. We had a fabulous chat.

    Episode 187 | Reclaim Your Life | Mel Kettle

    Episode 187 | Reclaim Your Life | Mel Kettle

    How to reclaim your life from the hysterical demands of the modern workplace.

    If you feel like your job is grinding you into dust - you are not lone.

    An alarming percentage of us feel like our work is keeping our anxiety levels disturbingly high, keeping us from doing the things we love and spending quality time with the people we care about.

    Our work is knocking our lives out of shape.

    Sometimes it feels like we humans have taken a wrong turn somewhere along the way and we’re following a path where priorities are completely out of whack - the important things are pushed to the side for the hysterical demands of the modern workplace.

    And often - and this is the worst bit - we accept it as just the way things are. And we struggle on.

    It’s wrong and know it.

    My guest in this episode is Mel Kettle. Mel knows about a life knocked into the wrong shape as well as anyone.

    But she’s done something about it. Her brand new book is called Fully Connected - How great leaders prioritise themselves, reclaim their energy and find joy.

    Episode 186 | Hack your leadership performance | Scott Stein

    Episode 186 | Hack your leadership performance | Scott Stein

    Scott Stein joins us in this episode to discuss his newly updated book, Leadership Hacks, which now includes a comprehensive section on leading hybrid teams —something that has become a fresh challenge for a lot of organisations since the pandemic forced many of us to work remotely.

    Nuggets of gold:

    1. Always remember the three types of activity (i.e. work activity, recharge activity, relax activity), this ensures productivity and avoids burnout.
    2. Be clear about how you want to lead
    3. Anywhere you go, anyone you meet, increase the use of visuals to help others easily understand your message
