    Celebrating International Men's Day

    Celebrating International Men's Day

    international men's day  is  on 19th November. Not only should we celebrate the men in our lives we should also support  them. I  am joined by Dave Algeo who supports men with their health and mental health. We discuss a number of topics including how we can reach  out  to men who might find it  difficult to discuss their feelings. This is full of content but some key points are:
    1. Men will often use humour or alcohol to hide their feelings
    2. Remembering to 'nudge' regularly to remind men they need to look after themselves
    3. Those short text messages or voice mail messages make all the difference to a man who is isolated or depressed.
    Here is the transcription.

    Recognising others emotions from non-verbal cues

    Recognising others emotions from non-verbal cues

    We are joined by Dr Paddy Ross, Associate director of psychology at Durham University. Paddy has done a lot of work on how children learn to read emotions. He highlights the fact that before a certain age, sound is more important than non-verbal cues.
    We don't exclusively communicate with what we say but how we say it - and hand gestures, facial expressions and body language play a big role in this. Some highlights include:
    1. Wearing a mask (during covid) or not makes little difference in reading emotions because we use our eyes, gestures and body language more.
    2. The body is a significant driver for conveying emotions
    3. What we don't consider much is what our bodies are doing when we are speaking and communicating. Our body conveys so much emotion.

    Speaking and Engaging with International Clients

    Speaking and Engaging with International Clients

    Do you wish to engage and make more impact with international clients? In this podcast episode Susan Heaton-Wright shares top tips and case studies to ensure you have invaluable engagement with your clients; whether they speak English as their first language or not. She uses examples of working with clients in North America, the Middle East and Myanmar.
    Tips include:
    * Modifying the way you speak and the language you use to ensure everyone understands you.
    * Read the room; be aware of what is going on in the room, and modify what you do accordingly.
    * Never assume that because your clients speak some English, they will understand you.
    * Be aware of cultural differences. Are there specific topics you you should avoid to prevent your clients being offended.
    * Use of examples. Check that the clients will understand the examples you give.
    * Allow your clients to look at your slides to check the words and examples are clear to them.

    Lessons to lean into your influence with Joel Green

    Lessons to lean into your influence with Joel Green

    Joel Green is the CEO of pro level training, the National Director of Nike sports camps, a former professional basketball player, and renowned motivational speaker. He endured significant trauma as a child, and experienced unacceptable racism, yet went on to have a successful basketball career and  to alter his mindset and "Filter". This is such a powerful tool he developed, where he was able to focus on the good rather than continue to be impacted by the appalling acts he witnessed and experienced. Three of many highlights are:
    1. Use dark moments to get aways from them even more.
    2. Get help and support from others and talk. We all need a network of people who will support us.
    3.The power of filtering: being your own therapist and self assessing to see what you need, and what you need to get rid of in your life.
    And there are many, many gems.
    Here is the transcription of the podcast
    You can contact Joel at his website

    Top tips for Leading New Graduates

    Top tips for Leading New Graduates

    Early September is the time new graduates are employed in their graduate roles. These young people are the "COVID generation" whose degrees were studied, in part, online. And it is even more important to support and demonstrate positive leadership to these talented young people.
    I am joined by Nick Simon
    He is a recent graduate who has researched his friends' experiences and what they need in the way of information and support to thrive in their new role. The discussion highlighted:
    * How important it is to provide information on prospects, working hours, whether it is hybrid, remote or in the office work
    * The value of the graduate asking questions and feeling it is okay to do this
    * That any hardware and software is already ready when the new employee arrives on the first day.
    * Socials to get to know colleagues
    * A mentor for the new graduate to discuss challenges.
    Here is the transcription of the discussion
