It's nearly happy birthday, this is anniversary episode 2, where I revisit one of our most popular guests from the year. In this week’s show……… Getting the quiet members of your team to speak up Introvert myth of the week: Introverts don't make good leaders An interview with Clare Haynes. Clare is a coach who puts the human back into being at work and is an expert at helping people resolve difficult conversations at work. Her website is Leadership tip of the week A common request from leaders is how to get the quieter team members to speak up more in meetings. The answer, line them up! Introvert myth of the week Introverts don't make good leaders! In the week where it's the 35th birthday of Windows 1, that seems a good time to tackle this persistent myth.  
It's nearly happy birthday, so this is anniversary episode 1. In this week’s show……… A tip to get more from your wfh team Introvert myth of the week: Introversion can be cured, just speak up And an interview with graphic designer Angie Phillips Angie Phillips is a multiple award winning graphic design consultant. The interview I did with her about networking was one of the most popular in the year, so I thought I’d invite her back for a few minutes to help celebrate the show’s birthday Leadership tip of the week Working from home, office working and hybrid working are all big changes to the way we’re used to working. How does that switch affect your team? How do you use the greatest control mechanism you have a manager – the meeting? Here's a simple tip, taken from a childhood love of watching Ice  Skating! Introvert myth of the week Introverts can fix themselves and become extroverts. They just have to speak up!  
In this week’s show……… how to spot an introvert. Introvert myth of the week – ego is an extrovert thing And an interview with personal brand expert Ian Moyse Ian is a long time Sales Leader in the tech sector, for the last 13 years specialising in Cloud Computing, with over 25 years tech leadership experience. He has sat on the boards of a number of related industry bodies and built many new business sales teams in both small start-ups and large corporate organisations. Leadership tip of the week Get better at spotting the introverts in your team, so you can help them in appropriate ways. This problem is often caused by introverts trying to look like extroverts, as success often has an extrovert appearance. For more ideas go to Introvert myth of the week Ego is an extravert thing. Yes I know one of the things many introverts dislike is people with big egos taking them out and waving the round. It’s easy to think of big ego people as being extravert, but the two are separate. Is your introvert ego, holding you back?
In this week’s show……… Penny for the Guy Mister Better remote meetings And an interview with Gina Gardiner Gina is well known for her leadership expertise and illuminates the Way for enlightened leaders to create a more profitable & meaningful mission. Her website is Leadership tip of the week Many of us now have to run, or be involved in more virtual meetings than ever before. There’s an assumption that introverts prefer them, as there’s less people contact. Simple fact is that most people, including introverts find them tiring and often more tiring that face to face. In most face to face meetings people will look around the room every now and again – it’s not frowned upon. But on camera there seems to be an expectation of more concentration. One simple tip to help – have more breaks and get people to get up and move. The introverts will find it useful, but everybody else too. Other things that help are being much tighter on the agenda (keep it more relevant to the people in the zoom and stick to it). You could also try getting a different person to summarise the discussion on each subject, so every 10-15 minutes there’s a short summary For more ideas go to Introvert myth of the week Penny for the guy mister…. One myth I’d like to confine to the bonfire today is that it’s easy to tell an introvert from an extrovert. More and more people wear masks (figuratively, not the covid, or even Guy Fawkes ones). If the rewards for success go to more extrovert behaviours, then it’s no surprise that many introverts will wear a mask to hide in plain sight. Read more at
