    In this week’s podcast, I share:
    Why we micromanage and how to gently release some of that control The difference between micromanaging and managing closely How to judge the level of support your team members need Ways to strategically manage those that do need more of your support I hope you find these tips helpful and give the Spectrum of Support a try with your team.

    Ep 65 - When things don't go according to plan

    Both work and life are unpredictable and the older I get, the more I realise they rarely go to plan. But this doesn’t need to be a source of stress.
    Our ability to accept and embrace reality as it’s happening can determine how happy and successful we are in all parts of our lives.
    In this week’s episode, I share:
    Mindset tips for reframing and letting go when things don’t go to plan The difference between productive and unproductive worries How you can choose the emotions you want to feel Why accepting reality and releasing expectations is such a powerful way to live a happier life Next time when things don’t go according to plan for you, try to remember one point or tip from this episode and give it a go for yourself.

    Ep 63 - Deep Work, Rest and Play with Alicia Navarro

    Ep 63 - Deep Work, Rest and Play with Alicia Navarro

    This week, I’m joined by Alicia Navarro from FLOWN, a start-up who have created a deep work toolkit and deep work spaces that help knowledge workers get significant work done - and take joy in the journey.
    Deep work is focused, uninterrupted time where you’re working on something challenging or significant and allows opportunity for creativity, problem solving and a real sense of purpose.
    Unfortunately, it’s not the norm in most corporate workplaces and FLOWN wants to improve that. 
    Alicia and I discuss:
    What deep work looks like and the factors needed to create it How you can distraction proof your working time The importance of play for creativity and problem solving Nurturing feminine energy in a predominantly masculine world of work How FLOWN is reimagining how we work and their free daily sessions you can join After listening to this episode, I encourage you to review your normal working day. Is it dictated by emails, meetings and lacking creative thinking space? How can you create more deep work and play time for you and your team?
    MORE ABOUT ALICIA
    Alicia Navarro is a serial tech entrepreneur, with a passion for product, brand, design and culture.
    She is the founder and CEO of a new startup, FLOWN, creating ‘deep work’ spaces for knowledge workers. Frustrated by how hard it was to find the physical and mental spaces conducive to productive and creative thinking, Alicia began Flown to offer a curated network of deep work-enabled home and hotels accompanied by a set of online tools and resources to enable accountability, focus and creativity.

Amazing podcast for professional women

Carla gives practical, effective tips on workplace stresses learned from her own honest experience. A much needed podcast for our times when the gender pay gap at the top of most organisations remains stubbornly wide. Carla lets us know what women who want to go the distance can do about it. Thanks Carla x
