Ep 99: Bullying, harassment and toxic leadership
Being part of a toxic workplace or having a toxic leader can be complicated and confusing, and one person’s experience can be vastly different from another's. So how do we know if we're in a toxic workplace or have a toxic leader, and what can we do about it? Margie Hartley talks to Behavioural Scientist, CEO of Bright Research and Insights, and author of 'Bullying and Harassment: Understanding the psychological and behavioural tactics of the toxic leadership stronghold,' Susan Broomhall to get an evidence-based understanding of the different tactics used by toxic leaders that form a pattern of bullying, how a chaotic and dysfunctional environment enables leaders to have control, and insights to help navigate bullying and harrasment in the workplace.
Ep 98: Inspiring action through speech
Powerful speeches change minds, communities and the world, and teach us valuable lessons in the art of persuasion and creating positive change. Speech writing and presentation is a common minefield in leadership but a strong, engaging speech is imperative in giving direction, guidance and inspiration. Margie Hartley sits down with Founder of leadership consultancy Mojologic and author of What She Said, Monica Lunin to find out how powerful speeches work and why they’re effective, how we can deliver more persuasive presentations, why being good at oratorical leadership is so important to our career and how we can leverage the power of the spoken word.
Ep 97: Parents who lead
Parents who work in today’s fast-paced, volatile, and at times disorientating world can easily lose track of who they are and what really matters most. Feelings of reactivity and running from one thing to the next abound and many parents feel guilt at work because they aren’t at home and guilt at home because they aren’t doing work. Margie Hartley speaks with Organisational Psychologist and co-author of Parents Who Lead, Professor Alyssa Westring about how a leadership mindset can help parents reframe their approach to work and parenting, how overwhelmed parents can refocus their attention to better align with their priorities and why we need to Parent with Purpose.
Ep 96: Perform well by living well
We all want to perform our best at work, but this often comes at the expense of our well-being or physical health. Margie Hartley sits down with Coaching Psychologist and author of 'Get Moving Keep Moving' Dr Gordon Spence to learn how we can perform well by living well, why getting the balance right is transformative and how to best increase our motivation, energy levels and ultimately create a longer and more successful life.
