    Purpose and Paradigm Shifts in Leadership with Mechell Chetty

    Mechell Chetty’s philosophy is that every individual is a leader. And instead of nurturing this innate quality, many companies erode it by focusing on managing instead of leading.

In this Grow to Great interview, you will learn more about the shift in leadership paradigms and how they impact your, your team and your organisation. Mechell also provides two simple and effective exercises that can help you identify your passion and stop doing the things that are not adding value to your greater purpose.

    With 25 years of experience in the HR profession, Mechell Chetty is an end-to-end business leader with a passion for unleashing the potential in others. She worked for the respected Purpose Driven Organisation, Unilever for 23 of these years and is currently Head of HR Africa Region for Maersk logistics company.

    Creating Culture and Belonging in Your Company with Justin Bodill

    Culture in many companies is viewed as “this is the way we do things around here” but as Justin Bodill points out in this Grow to Great interview, culture comes from tangible inputs that need to be intentionally crafted and built through behaviour. Culture forms through the doing. In this episode, you will learn practical strategies and skills as a leader to create culture in your company, and to keep it alive and evolve it - both when everything seems to be going well and most especially when it is not.

    Justin Bodill works as a Learning and Development Programme Manager for a large retail company. He has spent the last 15 years in the corporate world of Learning and Development, holds an Honours Degree in Organisational Psychology from the University of Cape Town and is a qualified Coach. He has a passion for individual and team development, leadership and culture work in business and in sport. Follow Justin on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/justinbodill/details/experience/

    Wellbeing at Work Begins with Psychological Safety with Dr. Mavis Mazhura

    Wellbeing at Work Begins with Psychological Safety with Dr. Mavis Mazhura

    Four of our basic human needs include belonging, feeling competent in what we do, contributing comfortably in the world around us, and having the ability to challenge the status quo. When these needs are met in workplaces, psychological safety is present and there are higher levels of trust in teams, leading to better innovation and decision making. In this episode, we chat with Dr. Mavis Mazhura about the three levels of psychological safety -  individual, team and organisation and what we can do at each level to ensure those four needs are met and avoid a toxic culture. As a leader, you will learn the importance of gaining greater self-awareness - uncovering your baggage, values, unmet needs and habits driving your behaviour and interactions with others. As Dr. Mazhura described, “Emotions buried alive, never die.”

    This episode will give you practical tips and advice for including psychological safety into your wellbeing strategy, both for yourself and your company.

    Dr. Mavis Mazhura is an international Behavioural Science and Performance Specialist, a Leadership and Adult Development Psychologist, and an Organisational Development consultant and practitioner with expertise in human dynamics in organizations. She is also the author of multiple books and the cofounder of Training B2B CC. Follow Dr. Mavis Mazhura on Linkedin.
