I am fascinated by the difference in approach, stories and the incredibly thoughtful conversation that’s taken place.Todays’ themes include the softer side of leadership, burnout and looking out for the signs. Communication and curiosity in your leadership, as well as playfulness in leadership development, as a part of the DNA of it.It’s been incredible to chat to these three wonderful leaders who so openly share their insights, to help you grow and develop as leaders. Sharing thoughts and insights as leaders, is so powerful and helpful for our own development and sanity. If you would like some thought partnership, then give me a shout – providing that thinking space, is a real passion of mine, as I see the value it brings for my clients.Podcast Episode Summary:How are your soft skills serving you at this time and how much are they valued in your workplace?How are you creating thinking space in your daily schedule?What additional pressure are you putting yourself under, that you could re-evaluate and release?How are you taking time to observe yourself and your team, for the signs of burnout?What body armour do you put on to help you cope with leading daily?What strengths and weaknesses is your body armour hiding from others?How helpful is that for you in your leadership?What high expectations are you holding yourself too, and how is that impacting your wellbeing?What ridiculously small step can you take to make a change in the way you are leading yourself?How are your communications with others being received?What could you do to improve the way you communicate with others?How can you get curious about the things that don’t feel right in your current work situation. What are you going to do about it?What if – anything was possible? Think about that for a moment!What impact have you noticed, 1 month, 6 months, 12 months and so on, after development programmes you’ve participated in?How are you and your organisation ‘flourishing’ right now?How can you find out more about neurodiversity if that’s helpful for you personally, or to help you support those around you?Host Resources:How resilient are you?

#066 Meaningful Reflections!
It’s our final episode with author, and executive and leadership coach, Leigh Howes. Why not find a space to settle in without interruption! I think Leigh and I could talk forever. However, we’ve kept it contained to a length that gives you a bitesize focus on your leadership. In this episode, we are talking about performing at our best, those moments it’s not just us we are looking out for, and going deeper into meaningful reflection. Whilst I feel a little sad that our trio of episodes is coming to an end with Leigh, I know we will collaborate again in the not too distant future, and I’m looking forward to it already. Finish that email, finish your meal, clear up and settle into another ‘very curious’ episode of Game of Leadership. I know you’re going to get some much from it and as always, I would love to hear what’s resonated most with you, so do reach out and let me know. Questions to consider whilst listening:How are you decompressing on the days you are working from home?What could you do differently to help you to decompress, so you can be at your best in your personal time?When do you perform best professionally?What do you notice about you, that enables you to be at your best professionally.How has taking care of others, whether you are a partner, parent or carer, changed your leadership outlook?How did you adjust your priorities accordingly, and what has been the positive impact on your leadership, as a result?How often do you take time to ask your team what the real challenges are that you are facing?How could that help to really understand what the root cause of a challenge might be? Guest Resources:Website https://leighhowes.com/LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/leighhowes1/Host Resources:How resilient are you?

#065 It’s A Game Changer!
Today's episode is our second episode with author, and executive and leadership coach, Leigh Howes. You are in for a treat! Today we are digging into Leigh’s thoughts on game and leadership and the idea of leadership games to manipulate others, isn’t her favourite. We share the aversion to seeing people play games to manipulate others. We are getting into all sorts including knowing our own minds in the decisions we make, who we hang out with and how we connect with others. It’s a game changer 😉 This is a great episode to listen to whilst you are doing something for you. Could be a run, some yoga, or simply sitting and listening, without interruption. Give yourself some space to soak up the insights shared in today’s episode. Enjoy! Questions to consider whilst listening:What games are you seeing in the leadership around you?What’s been game changing for you recently in your leadership?How well do you know yourself?How much have you listened to yourself when making choices and decisions in life and leadership?Who are you spending the majority of your time with?How is that working for you, i.e. are they draining your energy or boosting it?How can you find common ground with others, to help you communicate with others and build rapport?What one thing could you do that’s totally for you today? Guest Resources:Website https://leighhowes.com/LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/leighhowes1/Host Resources:How resilient are you?

#063 What Body Armour Are You Wearing?
This is our final episode for now, with the brilliant Jimmy Burroughes, a leadership expert on a mission to change the way we achieve results. This episode is all about moment that changed Jimmy’s life – burnout! It isn’t something that happens in a moment – it builds over time and Jimmy is sharing his story, so you get to know what to look out for, when it comes to you and those around you. Listen out for the diving analogy and how that relates to vulnerability. Very helpful in terms of how you can support your team. Over the last two episodes, Jimmy has shared so much about what’s important to him and how he likes to work. Today is no exception and the story of how he is where he is today, is something that so many of you will resonate with. Make sure you are ready to listen to this one. By that I mean – no distractions, as you’re going to want to pay attention! Questions to consider whilst listening:What body armour do you put on to help you cope with leading daily?What strengths and weaknesses is your body armour hiding from others?How helpful is that for you in your leadership?What would happen if you were to see your ‘pin stripe suit’ as clothes and not body armour?What programmes have you tried? How have they helped you lead at your best?What high expectations are you holding yourself too, and how is that impacting your wellbeing?How are you creating work for yourself and others, through your leadership behaviours?What one small thing can you do to change that for the better, so you all have space to work at your best? Guest Resources:Website https://www.jimmyburroughes.comLinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/jimmyburroughes/Instagram https://www.instagram.com/jimmybleadership Host Resources:How resilient are you?
