    Future trends for 2022 S4 E12

    Future trends for 2022 S4 E12

    Welcome to Calm Edged Rebels; Trudy, Jenni and Advita’s award-winning podcast, which was only this week featured in Bananatag’s ‘22 Best Internal Communications Podcasts for 2022’.


    https://blog.bananatag.com/internal-comms/best-internal-communications-podcasts


     


    As this is the last episode of the current season, our news section reflects on the podcast itself and the people who support us. And we have a question for you: how useful do you find our news discussions, and should we continue them into season five? We’d love to hear your thoughts.


      


    The final big topic gives us an opportunity to gaze into the future and debate what the big trends will be for 2022 and beyond.


     


    We talk about the rise of ESG and AI, and the influence they have over the ways we communicate. Changes in the use of technology have shaped the past few years, but where can we find reliable sources to learn about developments in the tech of the near future?


     


    Diversity and inclusion, women’s safety and personalisation are all prevalent themes right now; which of these are likely to dominate our thoughts in the year ahead and how can we make sure we know how to work well with them?


     


    Find out which trends we predict will increase and what we’re doing to stay ahead of the curve.


     


    Finally, we want to say a big thank you to you, our listeners. We enjoy sharing our thoughts with you and we appreciate your support.

    Living and sticking to your values S4 E11

    Living and sticking to your values S4 E11

    Welcome to Calm Edged Rebels; Trudy, Jenni and Advita’s award-winning podcast. 


     


    The focus for our news section this week is the recent change in attitude towards sending work texts and emails outside work hours, following a change in the law in Portugal. You can also find out why this is Advita’s last news section of the season.


      


    For our big topic, we explore the concept of sticking to and living with your values. Are organisational values worthwhile, and to what extent do they differentiate companies? What happens when we meet people who have opposing values and how does that fit with cultivating inclusivity?


     


    Find out how we advise leaders to live their values while embracing diversity and how we can make an effective link between values, behaviours and decisions for ourselves.

    Leaders are responsible for psychological safety. S4 E10

    Welcome to Calm Edged Rebels; Trudy, Jenni and Advita’s award-winning podcast. 


      


    In our weekly podcast, we share our views on the big subjects for professional communicators, leaders and coaches. We also take the opportunity to share topical issues with you. 


      


    We have our own announcement to make in this week’s news section. Tune in for the latest information about our Comms Retreats and find out what our brand new offer is.


      


    Our big topic centres on psychological safety and the extent to which it’s a leadership responsibility to foster a psychologically safe workplace. 


     


    How much do factors like industry, culture and hierarchy impact on levels of psychological safety? What kind of behaviours can crush people’s confidence and what role does belonging play? 


     


    We consider the role of personality, relationships and the need to create safe spaces in the context of current work places.

    How not to be weird when you‘re networking. S4 E9

    Welcome to Calm Edged Rebels; Trudy, Jenni and Advita’s award-winning podcast. 


      


    In our weekly podcast, we share our views on the big subjects for professional communicators, leaders and coaches. We also take the opportunity to share topical issues with you. 


      


    In this week’s news section we talk about the changing expectations of generations in the workplace and an emerging sense that Gen Z employees are quick to make demands their bosses don’t understand. 


      


    For our big topic, we ask the tough questions about networking. What is the power of networking and how do you do it? Is it OK to find a new job through your network or is that unethical?


     


    As we met through our networking activities, we share our thoughts on the difference between virtual and in-person events and how to make both work for you. 


     


    We consider the role of internal networking and discuss whether we should have a personal networking map. We also share our thoughts on dressing to impress!

    How thinking differently can create belonging. S4 E8

    How thinking differently can create belonging. S4 E8

    Welcome to Calm Edged Rebels. 


    Season four of Trudy, Jenni and Advita’s award-winning podcast. 


    In our weekly podcast, we share our views on the big subjects for professional communicators, leaders and coaches. We also take the opportunity to share topical issues with you. 


      


    In this week’s news section we compare how the change of the seasons is impacting us and our work. Listen closely to find out how many times Advita says ‘vibrant’ and you’ll know how much we’ve all got going on. We’d love to know how you are doing too, so contact us on our social media to tell us how you are.


      


    Our big topic this week is inspired by Matthew Syed’s book, Rebel Ideas. It’s a book that focuses on diversity of thought in a broader way than a lot of the general dialogue around diversity.


     


    We talk about the importance of widening your network and encouraging diversity of thought, while avoiding tokenism. How do we include and amplify the voices of those who are underrepresented, rather than speaking for them?


     


    What are echo chambers and information bubbles? How do we create the trust that’s needed to include and hear wider opinions? Find out what tips we share to help you think differently.


     


    Throughout the conversation we refer to the following books, articles and reports:

A podcast you feel part of

This is one of my favourite comms podcasts - the range of topics is spot on and the content is positive, insightful and challenging - and there’s plenty of laughs along the way. I particularly like the style - the way the conversation flows so easily between Advita, Jenni and Trudy and their generosity in sharing their experiences makes you feel part of the conversation. The topics have given me plenty of food for thought - roll on season 3.

My Internal Comms Companions

Listening to this podcast has genuinely been one of the highlights of the last six months. Jenni, Advita & Trudy generously share the highs and lows of their journeys as Internal Comms professionals with honesty and humour. Their conversational style has been a welcome companion and a huge support to my learning as I’ve delved into the world of Internal Comms. I have felt provoked to be brave and productive, I have laughed along at the Brene Brown mutual appreciation and I have cried as they shared so vulnerably about diversity and inclusion. I cannot recommend this highly enough! Whether you are interested in Internal Comms or not, these are human messages and you will be all the better for listening to this delightful trio of friends!

FiAllen ,

A podcast that cuts through the jargon

Love this podcast and the topics they cover. Every week I find that I’m nodding along agreeing with so many view points but I also learn how to look at topics differently. All three fabulous hosts are relatable, talk about real life examples and give honest view points. Really looking forward to season 3!
