    Reimagining Organisations with Lisa Gill

    Reimagining Organisations with Lisa Gill

    Can an organisational structure that deviates from the norm be empowering and transformative for the people working there? How can a more humble style of leadership contribute to this? To answer that question and more, this week I am delighted to be joined by Lisa Gill.  

    Lisa was included in the Thinkers50 Radar 2020 and coaches teams and organisations who are interested in becoming self-managing. She also facilitates leadership courses that train people in a more adult-adult, coaching style of leadership

    The Hybrid Way with Ciara D'Arcy

    How does the combination of collaboration, connection and culture factor in to optimising hybrid work for your team and your organisation? 

    While circumstances over the past couple of years have taught us a lot of valuable lessons about the inner workings of hybrid, there is still much to figure out. 

    To dig deeper on this topic, this week I am joined by Ciara D’Arcy. An experienced Human Resources Director, Ciara is formerly HR Director of Accenture Ireland, Head of HR with Google and Technical Director with IBEC.

    Future in Focus with Peter Cosgrove

    Future in Focus with Peter Cosgrove

    When we think about the future of work, often we are left with more questions than answers as leaders. 

    But if the future of work truly is ours to shape, what does the model look like and what trends are emerging? 

    This week we are joined by Peter Cosgrove, the Managing Director of Futurewise Ltd, a future of work research company that supports organisations in navigating the rapidly changing world of work.  

    Peter joined an IMI Council meeting late last year to contextualise the challenges and opportunities that the future of work could present.

    A New Vision for Sustainability with Marga Hoek

    A New Vision for Sustainability with Marga Hoek

    Of the 100 largest economies in the world by GDP, 69 are companies. As such, the business world has a massive influence on turning the tide in terms of our global goals on sustainability.

    This week, to contextualise the challenges ahead and analyse where leaders fit into this ‘big picture’ issue, we are joined by an authority in this space, Marga Hoek.

    Why is sustainability not necessarily just a top-down initiative in businesses? What part does trust play in planting the seeds for a sustainable future? How can CEOs communicate and execute on ambitious sustainability-led visions?

    Marga is a member of the prestigious Thinkers50 and an expert on sustainable business and capital. She recently held a Masterclass for IMI on A New Vision for Sustainability.

Great insights

Love the format and shorter length of the episodes which are handy for those tight on time. Host manages the guests well and gets the key points covered. Looking forward to seeing the content into the future.

Insightful and Impactful

An excellent podcast for those moments you want to improve professionally and could do with some inspiration on how to do it. Great topics for an aspiring and senior leader, and well explained by the guests.
