Why is it we Humans get romanced by complexity when the answers can be found at a SIMPLE and PRACTICAL level? The "Simply Practically Human" Podcast, The Human Manager Mark LeBusque features experts who have a track record in HUMANISING WORKPLACES using SIMPLICITY and PRACTICALITY as their GO TO approach. It's all about getting back to what it is to be Human and watch Workplaces thrive rather than just survive.
How Full Is Your Cup?
In the first '4S' Podcast for 2023, Mark shares some of what's been happening over the break and some major lessons he's learned about why his cup isn't as full as he'd like it to be after a torrid end to 2022. Oh and he shares some thoughts about layoffs and examples of how to do them well and not so well!
Dr. Nicole Byers - Brains Are Amazing
Why do we procrastinate, doubt ourselves and people please and what's the brains' role in all of this? Dr. Nicole Byers shares a combination of theory and lived experience on what our brains are up to and how some simple and practical tools and tips can move us from a fixed to a growth mindset. My favorite was by creating a 'done' list and not just having a 'to do' list. Well with a listen if you're as amazed about the brain as what Nicole is.
Thank You Fellow Humans
Mark rounds out an amazing year of the Simply, Practically Human Podcast by reflecting on 2022 from a self, family, and work perspective, how he will chill out over the break, and shares a sneak peek at the exciting guests coming up in 2023. Oh.....and it wouldn't be Mark if he didn't seed a provocative question or two for you to contemplate over the coming weeks.
Alison Cameron - Leadership For The New Millenium
Alison Cameron is one of humanity's joys and a student of human consciousness. Incorrectly diagnosed and institutionalized at 14 with a mental illness that turned out to be a spiritual emergence, Alison has continued on challenging and questioning many of the archaic beliefs and behaviours around leadership and has identified humane and soulful leadership as a way for the new millennium. From being wary of organisational spaghetti to being clear on what you are willing to sacrifice, Alison shares all of her humanness in this real and raw episode.
Why Can't I Let Go?
Letting go and outsourcing is a self-improvement goal my guest on this co-share podcast Tiffanee Cook has been contemplating for some time with limited success. In this episode I use the Immunity to Change framework created by Lisa Lahey and Robert Kegan to help her to become aware of the hold her cognitive immune system has over her, and how to start overcoming this. Identity, agency, mattering, belonging, trust and a whole lot of other human needs pop up when least expected as Tiff is encouraged and provoked at times to dig deep into her fears about letting go
Maxime Fern and Michael Johnstone - Provocation as Leadership
Maxime and Michael believe that in order to create deep change you have to disturb people or at least risk doing so. Their journeys as family therapists to facilitators at Harvard Kennedy School and global experts working internationally in change have led them to recently publish their book 'Provocation as Leadership - A Roadmap for Adaptation and Change'. They share some of their experiences including why purposeful provocation requires heart, creating more crisis is one way to make deep adaptive change, there's a 'stuckiness' to this work that humans looking for more of the same don't like, be wary of the old system lurching in the shadows, and why it's critical to know the difference between positive and destructive provocation. The publisher Routledge is currently offering a 30% discount on the book: https://www.routledge.com/Provocation-as-Leadership-A-Roadmap-for-Adaptation-and-Change/Fern-Johnstone/p/book/9781032342535
