Kelly is the Victorian winner of the 2020 Agrifutures Rural Woman of the Year with her concept of using working dogs to encourage social connection and as a support tool to improve mental wellbeing in farming communities.

    Why managing mindset is an essential skill for leaders with Sue Langley

    Why managing mindset is an essential skill for leaders with Sue Langley

    In this episode Sue Langley, keynote speaker, global consultant and positive leadership expert, shares how leaders can challenge their own thinking and flip the way they look at adversity to respond more productively. She uses evidence-based thinking and her knowledge of neuroscience and positive psychology to provide leaders with the tools to be more effective. We chat about how viewing life as an experiment can help disrupt our thinking and how Sue uses this in her everyday life to challenge her own thinking and increase her wellbeing. 

    We discuss how stress is not a dirty word, why the micro-moments matter for leaders, why organisations should change performance reviews to strengths-based conversations and the evidence behind why strengths-based approaches deliver results for organisations, and how often the best thing we can do for ourselves is get out of our own way. And Sue also wants to know….what do you do outside work?

    There's more to life than work" - how this helps leaders cultivate great workplaces with Cath Connell

    There's more to life than work" - how this helps leaders cultivate great workplaces with Cath Connell

    In this episode Cath Connell, Founder of Wholehearted Marketing, talks about her insights as a women’s business and life coach about the importance of placing value on the whole of our lives, rather than judging our success solely on what happens at work. She shares her journey as a mother where she left an executive role in a corporate organisation to start her own business, as the system did not work for her, her family or her life. A lot of our identity is tied up in what we do and Cath wants to challenge us to consider success from a whole of life perspective rather than through a narrow lens. We discuss why it's so important for women in corporate and running their own businesses to ensure they are connected to their values. We also have a rant about how organisations need to cultivate more flexible and inclusive cultures and systems that support women to take on roles at all levels in different stages of their lives and how powerful this would be in creating a better world.

    Cultivate is also the title of Cynthia Mahoney’s first book, it’s about how neuroscience and well-being can support leaders to build happier, healthier teams who are ready to thrive.

    Leading in the Hybrid Workplace with Anita Lane

    Leading in the Hybrid Workplace with Anita Lane

    In this episode Anita Lane, co-founder of Solution Underwriting Agency, shares how her organisation emerged from the pandemic stronger than ever, with much the success coming from how they supported staff, reflecting their people-first philosophy. We discuss the culture that Solution has cultivated and Anita’s belief that if you take care of your people, success will follow. Solution’s bonus system is not about KPI’s but about the difference staff have made to making the organisation a great place to work. A great discussion about organisational success being built on a cultivated culture and cultivating leadership.

    The Six Keys to Being a Cultivating Leader

    In this episode Dr Paige Williams interviews The Cultivate Podcast founder Cynthia Mahoney about her Six Keys to Being a Cultivating Leader model outlined in her book and why these keys are vital for leaders to master in the current environment of disruption and change where leaders are under more pressure than ever. Cynthia explains why her theory of “Cultivate” is the antidote to overwhelm, stress and burnout in the workplace. Paige and Cynthia’s conversation also includes findings from Paige’s latest research project, The Leaders Lab Workplace Report 2022 - The Psychological State of Australian Workplaces. We also dig further into the amendments to the OH&S legislation around the psycho-safety responsibility of leaders and why Emotional Intelligence is a key capability that leaders can draw on to navigate their way through this major change.
