    Ep 15: Bob Pierce from Prima Careers on Redundancy and Organisational Change

    Ep 15: Bob Pierce from Prima Careers on Redundancy and Organisational Change

    In Week 8, our final week of the series, we tackle a situation of stuck that can feel completely out of our control; redundancy and organisational change.Being told your role is no longer required, that you’re redundant, can lead to impacted confidence, lowered wellbeing and confusion. It’s unexpected, and depending on your life stage and plans, it can throw you off course.In this episode, Ann catches up with Bob Pierce, an Outplacement Specialist from Prima Careers. Bob has over 15 years of experience in this industry, working with people and organisations that are in the throws of change. If you’ve been made redundant, are facing into it now or have “survived” an organisational change, then this episode may help.Bob talks about the grieving curve of being made redundant, and the importance of having the skills to manage your career. He says, your career is one of your greatest assets in life, so you need to be actively managing it and building your adaptability and resilience.He reminds us that we will be working for nearly 50 years in our career, and highlights the importance of being a sticky-learner, throughout all stages of your career. He believes there is a nexus between career counselling and life counselling, and feels that having a career counsellor at key moments, can help with refocusing and staying connected to what you truly want. Here are the research links referenced in this episode:Benjamin Hurley – “Living in the age of redundancy” https://bit.ly/2ri6RfARosemary Guyatt – op cit. - Australian HR Institute https://bit.ly/2ri6RfAMcKinsey Report on M&A https://mck.co/34dGl5yMichael Gerber - “The E-Myth principle is still alive and flourishing” https://bit.ly/2Oi9XtfIf you’d like to connect with Bob Pierce, you can contact him directly:bob.pierce@primacareers.com+61 411 498 622If you have a question that you would like answered, or you would like to connect with Ann and Amelia directly, you can email: careerandcoffeepodcast@gmail.comYou can also join our Career and Coffee community on LinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/career-and-coffee-podcast/And find us on Instagram for bonus content: instagram.com/podcastcareerandcoffee

    Ep 14: Hannah Sturrock from The Hallway on Networking and Your Network

    Ep 14: Hannah Sturrock from The Hallway on Networking and Your Network

    In Episode 14, we delve deeper into the topic of networking and your network. Through the practice of networking we build our network, and the quality of our network, will determine how we progress and perform in our careers. It sounds simple, but how do we do that? What if networking terrifies you? What if you’re an introvert?In this episode, Amelia sits down for coffee with self-confessed introvert and advertising industry senior leader Hannah Sturrock. Hannah is the Managing Partner of one of Australia’s leading independent creative agencies, The Hallway. Since joining The Hallway in 2011, Hannah has grown and nurtured the business and her own career, and prior to that has had a long history working for entrepreneurial and creative businesses and agencies. First, in her native UK, where she worked for Wallpaper Magazine and Karmarama in London, and then at BMF in Sydney.Hannah talks first about her feelings of stuck throughout her career, being pigeonholed in a role based on her developed competencies, and tackling her own inner voice that kept saying “but you’re better” at being behind the scenes. She admits her greatest learnings came from a moment of rejection - a moment that she thought would get her unstuck - and how connecting with founders has changed the course of her creative and colourful career.When it comes to networking, Hannah believes we have to give over get and elevate our conversations to a higher value around strategy, if we want to get unstuck. She gives helpful advice on how to network as an introvert, how to avoid building a network that’s too narrow and a 101 on how to pitch your way out of being stuck. Here are the research links referenced in this episode:Dave Evans and Bill Burnett.
