Show Notes

Geoff Quattromani has a standout summary on his LinkedIn profile: “My goal is to lead an IT department to be a trusted business partner by providing innovative solutions and technologies along with superior services that help organisations satisfy customers' needs in a consistent manner.”

When you hear Johnson & Johnson, you might immediately think of baby powder and tear-free baby shampoo, but there are actually three major divisions: consumer, pharmaceutical, and medical devices/tech.  Think joint replacement implants and the surrounding medical technology, and that’s where Geoff does his work. As the Digital Transformation Manager for Johnson & Johnson’s Medical Technology division in Sydney, Geoff works toward his LinkedIn summary daily.  I’ll talk with Geoff about his work at J&J, his side-hustle as a technology commentator for radio/tv/magazines, his podcast, “Technology Uncorked,” his family life, and more in this episode.

25. The Gift of Adversity

  Sala Takiveikata was born in Fiji and moved to Australia in 2010. Since coming to Australia, Sala has graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce from Macquarie University and is currently working to achieve the Certified Practising Accountant (CPA) qualification. She is also completing her Masters of Commerce at the University of Sydney Business School. Sala and I met through LinkedIn. When I spent some time talking with Sala, she shared some of her background and the level of adversity she has overcome. I was inspired by her positivity and strength, as well as what she terms 'the gift of adversity'. I felt a responsibility to bring Sala’s story to life. So today, that is what we are going to do. The focus of our conversation today is how we can harness the gift of adversity and use it as a strength to help us achieve in life...     If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...

38. The Leadership Journey of School Captains

    Robert & Taylem were the 2020 School Captains at Central Coast Grammar School. I have had the privilege of working with both Robert & Taylem over this past year. We have talked about so many things related to their leadership journey and their experiences as School Captains of one of the most prestigious schools on the Central Coast. We wanted to bring this journey to life in a podcast episode to help other current and aspiring young school leaders, but also people working with young leaders to reflect on how we can work together to achieve great outcomes. In saying that, I know through first hand experience of working with Robert & Taylem, how much our young people can open up our minds and help us older generations to view the world through a different lens. The focus of our conversation today is learning from Robert and Taylem about their school leadership experience.     If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...

84. Leading Yourself First (The Change Room)

If you can’t lead yourself, how are you going to lead anyone else? This is the core tenet behind former NRL Head Coach Matty Elliot’s “The Change Room.” Combining his background, education, and qualifications -a Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise and Sports Science), performance coaching experience, and extensive research into well-being, Matt has created a best-in-the-market program that is changing hundreds of peoples’ lives for the better.  Matt’s well-honed coaching and presentation skills have broad appeal, whether it be injured workers in recovery or executives and their teams in the business world. Matt is equally comfortable (and makes others comfortable) presenting in person, via TV, webinar, radio, or podcasts. His passion drives him to elevate the well-being of others so that they can lead their best lives. And like other team members, he has his own well-being and recovery story to tell. Matt shares so much with me in our interview – from basic, simplified health-improving routines and processes you can today, to thoughtful ways to improve your relationships, to fascinating statistics and realities of human behaviors and emotions.  I guarantee you’ll learn a lot (like I did) and come away with a renewed drive to better yourself. Discussion Points Why is it important to be able to lead yourself Matt’s change room experiences and what led to authoring the book Every day is a chance to be better Why people don’t get better – convenience vs. the hard work of eating right, exercising, etc. You can't sustain high performance over an extended period ...
