    114 - Shouting Down the Ones That Care - Thats Dumb

    114 - Shouting Down the Ones That Care - Thats Dumb

    Welcome to 114 of the Dumb Leaders Podcast. Jumped onto Twitter yesterday and was so surprised to see Guy Sebastian trending. I thought it had to be something with the Voice where Sebastian is a judge, but no.

    Two things happened to Guy yesterday. One was a TikTok campaign that presumed that he was the person that brought Covid 19 into Australia brought about from some social media posts that placed him in Wuhan in November 2019 and his admission that he came back with flu-like systems.

    But that wasn't why he was trending.

    There is a campaign called #vaxthenation here in Australia, where musical and other celebrities have joined together to support the vaccination rollout. With the Vax the nation and getting the live music industry back and operating.

    #113 What do we Really Want and Need from Leaders Now

    #113 What do we Really Want and Need from Leaders Now

    One of the pervasuive thing that has occuured in the world is the de-evolution of leadership during this prolonger COVID crisis, especially in Australia. That may seem a harsh judgement for the political leaders who proudly proclaim they have kept use safe during this extended crisis. But the reality is that regardless of the strategy that has been used, the end is no closer. NO Closer. The states get locked down on a whisper of covid cases, WA has fundamentally become the new Hutt River Province and seceded from Australia.

    #112 -Leadership Lessons The Downfalls of Do as I Say & Not as I Do

    #112 -Leadership Lessons The Downfalls of Do as I Say & Not as I Do

    As a leader, it is your job to lead by example. You set the tone for the team, and you provide your team with the motivation and encouragement they need to work their very best. Your job is to nurture and protect that team, so that they can do their very best work.

    This is something that is understood by very few managers and bosses. Instead, too many people believe that being a leader or a manager makes them infallible – and gives them a kind of supreme authority over their team.

    This is why they think it’s okay to utilize a “do as I say, not as I do approach.”

    110 - Arresting The Continued Assault on Trust

    110 - Arresting The Continued Assault on Trust

    Welcome to 110 of The Dumb Leaders Podcast. Recently on the ABC here in Australia, i listened to an academic speak to recent research on how trust is low when it comes to government authorities. The decline of trust has largely been accelerated through the pandemic and the confused and ambiguous messaging around it. The narratives being portrayed in the media, the hard-to-find statistics, the agendas of the political parties and the human collateral that is hurting in so many areas.


    And here is the mindblown news flash. We have always been distrusting of the government. Its now more visible than ever.

    #109 Why Are we Celebrating the Removal of Hope

    #109 Why Are we Celebrating the Removal of Hope

    The world is deeply hurt. Covid has created a much greater impact socially than anyone could ever have imagined. The larger companies have been remarkedly unaffected, in fact increasing profits and market share have been the norm rather than the exception, governments and beurocrats have been untouched, while small and medium enterprises have been hardest hit, industries have battled through unscathed. while Tourism and hospitality have been decimated


    And during these times, the social justice messages have amplified and the celebration of the oppressed has magnified. The narrative is open in som many ways telling human beings they are inferior due to privilege and the system.

    Be critical in your thinking, ask questions and find your truth
