The Politics of Everything

At one time or another we've all had a bad boss – whether it’s through bullying and intimidation, unfair feedback or unrealistic workloads. Their behaviour sets the tone for what's acceptable in an organisation and can cause major issues for productivity, staff turnover and wellbeing, especially during difficult times like we’re experiencing now. In a tough or toxic work environment, how can you challenge your thinking and shift perspective to make relationships work?

The Politics of Everything

If nothing else, the past few years of a pandemic, has proven that many businesses rely on the global landscape – shutting borders during the Covid19 pandemic meant that many suffered from a lack of qualified staff, from missed trade opportunities, from not travelling to events, and from being unable to make quality connections beyond the realms of their laptop. While many organisations have perhaps shifted their focus domestically perhaps derived from necessity, there is no doubt that many still want to operate on a global scale. My guest today, Cynthia Dearin is the Founder of Dearin &...

The Politics of Everything

Business development is the lifeblood of any organisation. It is in many ways about building connections and capitalising on that as well as finding new ways to expand your product or service offering to existing customers. However, with sales being something many people find challenging or even off-putting what does the gold standard of great BD require? To find out, I am speaking to Victoria Butt, who I met around 2013 in a networking group – the perfect BD environment perhaps. Victoria is the Founder and Executive Search Consultant of Parity Consulting, serial entrepreneur, Founder and...

Bronwen Sciortino is here today to discuss The Politics of Resilience. She is an author and self-professed ‘Simplicity Expert’ who spent almost two decades as a high powered, award winning executive before experiencing a life changing event that forced her to stop and ask the question ‘What if there’s a better way to live?’

Today, through corporate programs, conference platforms, retreats, professional mentoring and in the online environment, Bronwen teaches other people how easy it is to live life differently.

You will hear in the podcast:

  1. How to define real resilience, in an era where it has become a ‘buzz word’?
  2. The idea we need added resilience is because we’re more stressed and exhausted than ever before, and why actually, instead of being more resilient, we need to learn to be more connected with ourselves and simplify our lives.
  3. Where do many people go wrong when they try to be more resilient, in your own experience?
