Despite what the world will have us believe Leadership is not about position or title, leadership is about the decisions and choices we make and ultimately it starts with how we lead ourselves everyday. How we deal with the difficulties, challenges, ups and downs that arise both personally and professionally and how we respond to them. Far too often we only see the end result, not the whole process which is why the podcast always starts with an origin story of my guest before we discuss topics such as business, culture, inclusion, equity, marriage and faith demonstrating leadership and explanations of how you can develop your leadership.

    Authentic Leadership: Signing Off to Come Back Switched On

    Authentic Leadership: Signing Off to Come Back Switched On

    “If you’re not modelling the right behaviour, why do you think your team is going to listen to you”
    Can you walk the talk? Do you lead by example? Are you able to look back on your actions and share your insights with your team?
    You may think its risky to take a break, a time to step back to not only recharge but reinvent yourself. It’s important to check your ego at the door to ensure you’re being intentional when it comes to “your time off” and be able to empower those around you to not see rest as a bad value. As Alan Cohen once said, “there is virtue in work, and there is virtue in rest, use both and overlook neither”

    I'll be back on Tuesday 6th September

    The Psychology of Business: Creating the Leaders of Tomorrow with Darja Gutnick

    The Psychology of Business: Creating the Leaders of Tomorrow with Darja Gutnick

    “When there is contradictory results that’s where the interesting part begins….so when its complicated or difficult, it just means we haven’t understood some moderating factors yet, and that’s where we find more when we lean into it”
    Growth comes from complexity, change and uncomfortableness; whether it's your personal life or your business. It’s essential now more than ever to identify those challenging moments and take your next step accordingly. Sometimes it’s not even about you, but about delegating and understanding everyone's role in the business.
    In this week's episode, Darja Gutnick takes us on a whirlwind of a journey that not only led her to found her business but provided key lessons and insight that helped her business flourish. Failure is inevitable in life, but what you take and turn it into you, is completely up to you.

    About Darja Gutnick
    In love with creativity and technology, Darja moved to California after finishing my Masters in Organizational Psychology (Germany). Inspired and hungry for more knowledge about how creativity really evolves under the pressure of business environments, Darja worked as a business consultant in Hamburg (OCC Strategy Consulting) for various clients, such as Otto Group and E-Plus. 

    Puzzled by what makes people creative in some cases and dysfunctional in others when under pressure she pursued my PhD in Management (Groningen, Niederlande) when she had the idea for citibuddies. After realising the PhD route was not for her, she saw a gap in the market between the research and corporate world.
    This is where Bunch came from - a startup on a mission to help everyone become a better leader by making professional growth & leadership accessible to all.

    Leading Yourself to Step into Change with Chris Anderson

    Leading Yourself to Step into Change with Chris Anderson

    “You have to learn to use basketball and not let basketball use you”
    This is a mantra that Chris Anderson shares with his coachees, and himself. It is not unique to basketball but can be pulled out and applied to situations we may find ourselves in.
    Understanding why you are there, why are you putting the work in here but not there, and what are you doing to create the future self you want to see? Continually asking yourself these core questions will provide a secret step up to make you ready for the next level.
    In this weeks episode, we delve into the role of personal development, for not only succeeding in business but finding your true self. It’s awkward, uncomfortable and sometimes just straight-up hard, but isn’t it better to be ready so you don’t have to be ready?

    About Chris Anderson
    Chris is currently the Learning Delivery Strategist at Google.
    Chris started his career at Time Warner and with almost 20 years of experience across all business units and roles from sales to strategy to management, he built and developed his career. His move to Google Fiber started a new journey focusing on development and people. This grew over his 8 years at Google Fiber, which led him to do another jump to Google as the Learning Delivery Strategist that he currently serves.

    Lead Yourself with the Right Question with Robert Jordan

    Lead Yourself with the Right Question with Robert Jordan

    "Just one good question…for most of us, the most powerful thing we can do is figure out the right question”

    As we move through life, we are constantly looking for the answers to life (consciously and subconsciously) through our relationships, careers, ideas, and experiences. But we sometimes forget the power of the question. 
    Sometimes the answer is knowing you don’t know the answer, it's sometimes not our “turn” to know the answer. It’s important to know when to step up and when it's time to bring someone else up with you.
    In this week's episode, we delve into what makes the four distinctive leadership styles, and how to identify your powers to create empowering lanes for you and your team around you. 

    About Robert Jordan
    Robert Jordan leads InterimExecs, providing access between the best interim and project executives in the world and company owners seeking brilliant leadership on demand. Robert Jordan has helped launch, grow and ultimately sell a number of fast-growing companies.

    His first company, Online Access, put him on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies. After selling Online Access, the first Internet-coverage magazine in the world, he launched InterimExecs LLC, which works with public and private companies and nonprofit organizations.
