#17 Are you a River or a Reservoir?

I love the quote 'Be a River not a Reservoir'. It seems to fit training and mentoring well and pushes us to pass on what we are learning, not waiting until we become an expert. 

What are you learning and how can it add value to others?

What's the thing you hate most? Mine is organising - sorting stuff out - choosing what to keep and what to throw out, or deciding what to do now and what to do later.

The good news is, there are ways we can calm down our brain to make the tasks we hate more do-able. There are 6 tips at the end! #podcast

#14 Leadership lessons from Pudsey Bear (Mike Jeacock)

March 29, 2021

[Transcription link below]

Do you have a leader you enjoyed working with? Who brightened up the office because he got up every morning and decided to be happy? Mike Jeacock is such a person for me.

Former Executive Director of the Legal Services Agency, COO of Jersey's financial regulator and all round 'good egg' talks to me candidly about his experience as a leader and how, above all, to be people focused.

For non native English speakers, this accent is Mancunian (Manchester) :-)

#13 How to grow your impact and influence

#13 How to grow your impact and influence

March 22, 2021

John Maxwell says 'Leadership is Influence, nothing more nothing less' and I like that definition because a) it is simple and b) we all have influence with someone and can increase it.

In this podcast I go through John's 7 pillars of Influence.  Which ones do you rely on to grow your influence with people?

Remember to follow the podcast to get reminders when I post them on Mondays. Also, I love to receive comments and questions which I can cover in future episodes.

#12 Do you play to win or PLAY NOT TO LOSE?

#12 Do you play to win or PLAY NOT TO LOSE?

March 15, 2021

It is said that our choices in life have made us who we are. My friend Dieter Jansen has written a great book - Decision Point - with stories of his life and decisions he made. He joins me on the podcast and explains how the book is structured and we discuss some of the questions he poses like:

Do we play to win or PLAY NOT TO LOSE?

Do we respect all or some people?

Do we want to be popular or hold our principles?

I hope you enjoy it and please leave any comments, questions or suggest topics for future podcasts.

Many of you know my story. You have been in my leadership groups or heard me speak somewhere about leadership.

 

But some of you are new, so I have recorded this to explain:

 - why the podcast is called The Leadership Woman

 - what I thought leaders looked like

 - how it became the most important topic for me, and

 - why I particularly focus on developing women leaders and the next Gen.

I hope you enjoy it.

Having to adapt to online in 2020 brought with it greater accessibility. It meant that I could have a group (Aspiring Leaders) of young people who wanted to grow which ever country they were in and they brought their friends.

Ksenia is in that group and you can hear her passion for learning and self improvement in this podcast. She goes through things that she has done which helped keep her not only on track but moving ahead in 2020.

#8 Leadership Lessons from the Mental Health sector

#8 Leadership Lessons from the Mental Health sector

February 15, 2021

It was a pleasure to talk to Dean Harries about how he became a leader in the health sector. We met a few years ago on a train journey from Wales to London: I was going to the airport to fly home and he was going for a job interview and we have stayed in touch every since.  He talks about:

His lost teenage years

How to lead a team of experts when not an expert

How learning about yourself can help you understand others

I am sure that what he says will resonate with many.
