Chris Ashmore chats with inspirational business coaches and entrepreneurs and what they are doing to influence change in Australia’s best known organisations.
Shaun Kenny: Pursuing his dream to influence other people
In order to thrive in a world of change, organisations have to adapt. They need to be resilient, they need to be ethical and learn to be collaborative. It's not easy to do, and it takes time, fresh thinking and motivation to pave a way forward. Shaun Kenny helps some of Asia Pacific's leading organisations with just that. On this episode, you'll hear how Shaun and his team at People of Influence guide organisations to embrace their human side, and develop the soft skills so their leaders can inspire others, build collaboration and influence the people around them. Shaun also takes us through the fears and stress of starting his own business, and how that resilience and handwork in the beginning has paid off. A pure inspiration for anyone who's ever thought of pursuing his or her own dream.
Alex Hagan: How to survive and thrive in a New Normal
As the world becomes increasingly more complex and confusing, how do organisations and leaders adjust? In this thought-provoking episode of TELL, Alex Hagan says leaders today need to shift their strategy from one of prediction to one of vision. When a surprise inevitably happens-like Donald Trump's presidential victory-they're at least in a stronger position to respond. Alex is CEO and Founder of Kienco and he's worked with leading global organisations to build a future in a world of complexity.
Mary Butler: Getting business leaders 'Future Ready'
How does a business leader stay agile and prepare for an uncertain world? Mary Butler says it's about have the right people in the right place with the right capabilities; it also means having the right frameworks and infrastructure to support them.
Mary is a business leader facilitator and coach who's committed to getting business leaders 'Future Ready'. And that means, preparing organisations for the unknown.
On this episode of TELL Chris Ashmore, Mary explains what's holding organisations back from being future ready, and how she helps leaders with her program, 'The New Who's Who'.
Emma McQueen: Challenges women face in business and how to overcome them
Emma McQueen is not a coach for the faint-hearted. She's a hard task-master, a go-getter and expects the best from those she leads. And they love her for it. But, she's also a cheerleader and motivator and a sage with practical advice.
She's one of the most energetic people I've met - and that enthusiasm, well...it's pretty infectious. And I guess that is one of the most enduring qualities she has with her legions of fans.
Emma's an executive coach and HR professional and helps women in leadership develop their unique strengths.
