Learn to lead by thoughtful example
Brad in Action
Our workshops are all about working together in a team.
Something to think about…
International lecturer and educator, Dr Joe Dispenza estimates we each have 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day and most of them are the same thoughts we had yesterday. So in order to change we need to start thinking differently, about topics like:
What does it mean to be vulnerable? And how does it make us feel? Many of us likely perceive it as a weakness; perhaps a sense of failure. And yet – as I’m sure most of us agree – it’s the vulnerable periods in our life where we learn so much about who we really are. But being vulnerable can also be a strength, and help take us out of our comfort zone.
There’s a common theme between the people I surround myself with and the stories I most enjoyed telling during my career as a journalist – authenticity. Whether it be an elite athlete, the volunteer who follows their heart doing what they love, or the person who makes your coffee every morning and asks, “how are you?” not because they’re being polite – even though they probably are – but because they sincerely want to know you’re okay.
The very mention of the word opens up a can of worms; a very large can crammed with very large worms. Why is culture so important in a workplace? And if you have a bad culture, how do you transform it into a positive culture? What we know is the highest performing businesses are the ones where employees thrive, grow and feel inclusive because they’re part of a fabulous workplace culture where they want to be, rather than have to be.
We learn many things from many different people, like my uncle Dick, a retired bricklayer. At some time in my mid-teens I spent a week working with him on a building site, mixing cement and lugging bricks. His advice after handing me my first pay cheque: “you talk too much”. I knew that already. But more importantly he added, “don’t ask someone to do something you wouldn’t be prepared to do yourself.” Wise words that have stayed with me for life.
