Hysterionics, the podcast that finally gives anyone interested in leadership and organisational culture a place to share, commiserate, ponder, let rip and perhaps learn without a whiff of an embellished conference case study. If you’re looking for a tutorial Hysterionics is not the place and it’s probably best to switch to the Open University; this is raw and honest sharing and learning. Hysterionics will feel like a conversation between likeminded friends because that’s exactly what it is. Every two weeks I will sit with senior friends from the world of talent and leadership and talk openly about the hysterionics of paying the mortgage by influencing human behaviour, without ever resorting to infringements of the bribery and corruption act. Or murder.

    Adventures in Talent Acquisition

    Adventures in Talent Acquisition

    When we talk about the “new normal” of COVID from a talent perspective, the process of acquisition is something that gets both a lot of attention and speculation: Will non geo-specific roles really take off? Is it really a global talent pool? But what about the psychological contract changes and an audience who increasingly want to lease their talent rather than sign up to be a company person? And what about the impact of ESG/DE&I when it comes to finding diverse talent? AND! How do those in talent acquisition make sure they work with those who shape the culture to ensure diverse talent finds a true home where they can have maximum impact? So many questions! Tom works through these and many more in conversation with Simon Lucas, MD of Society Search, a true resourcing partner when it comes to helping amazing, global clients get the talent they need.

    It starts with me, myself and I

    It starts with me, myself and I

    Tom and Neil are back after a short break for season 2 of Hysterionics. It's a humdinger as Tom talks to Marina Corti of Richemont (think Cartier, Montblanc, Chloe) about the realities of DE&I from a corporate perspective. To what extent are some corporates having a kneejerk reaction to movements such as Black Lives Matters? What has changed for the better in the tumultous last year when it comes to creating inclusive working environments? How do we own our privilege and get in touch with our own biases? Frankly, are organisations and their leaders aware of what creating a truly inclusive culture means and will they ever put the work in.......oh and if you're worried about Clancy and Dr Keith... they'll be appearing in your earwaves soon

    Breaking The Glass Floor

    Breaking The Glass Floor

    In a really powerful and sometimes moving session, Neil and Keith turn the tables on Tom and make him the subject of his own podcast, to talk in detail about his motivation for writing Breaking The Glass Floor. This episode deals with the realities of having a serious mental health condition and hiding it from yourself and your corporate career. Neil and Keith ask Tom some direct questions and together they explore what organisations can and must do to take mental health seriously instead of paying it glib lip service. No more shiatsu in the car park for mental health awareness week unless you deal with the gritty reality of serious depression and have an adult conversation about it.

    Backwards and Forwards

    How do you begin to summarise everything we've learned and experienced in 2020? And what about 2021? Do we need to buckle up or just buckle? The Hysterionics gang share their views of 2020 and their hopes and predictions for 2021. Kicking things off is the wonderful CPO of Covermore Insurance, Kate Hughes. What happens when you take on the role of Chief People Officer for a global travel insurance and assistance provider mere weeks before the world stops travelling? Kate will tell you....
    Oh and happy holidays everyone

    OK, Back To The Future

    OK, Back To The Future

    There is no doubt that this year has made employees and employers alike question the future of work (probably more so the former) Is what we are seeing now in terms of working differently and changing mindsets a temporary arrangement or the acceleration of long bubbling trends? Tom and Clancy ruminate on how we are going to be working in the future, what that means for organisational structure, processes and practices and then the ever perky Dr Keith Schofield of Aston Business School comes and gives his learned perspective. Gaspard the dog tries to butt in as well.

    Employee Experience brandwagon

    Employee Experience brandwagon

    Tom and Neil are reunited to discuss and pick apart the whole trend of Employee Experience. What is it and why are so many organisations going on about it? Does it finally mean HR have adopted some marketing techniques? What would a Head of People Experience actually do?? Tom has a Gerald Ratner moment and thankfully special guest Mark Ramsay from CDK Group adds some clarity and sanity to the proceedings
