Show Notes

Have you received feedback from a leader that was vague, wishy-washy, or perhaps really harsh?  Were you upset, confused, or hurt by what they told you?  There are good and bad ways to deliver feedback to team members or employees.  

My guest today is Leisa Molloy, a workplace psychologist, consultant, coach, and founder of Flourishing Minds Consulting.  Flourishing Minds is a boutique organizational psychology consulting firm that specializes in helping organizations, leaders, and teams to build stronger levels of leadership capability, alignment, trust, clarity, and psychological safety. 

Leisa has spent more than 17 years helping leaders navigate important workplace conversations. In this episode, we speak about the three different types of feedback, what a good and bad feedback conversation looks like, how to prepare for a feedback conversation, and the very real risks of providing vague or ineffective feedback. Leisa also shares a step-by-step process that will help you immensely the next time you’re required to give feedback to one of your team members.

5. How To Build a Trillion Dollar Culture

  Do you know how to build a trillion dollar culture? That's what Scotty Schindler did. Scotty was the start up founder of a Real Estate Software business called ReNet. Scotty retired from ReNet in 2017 at the tender age of 46. At the time of his retirement, ReNet managed over 1.1 trillion dollars of property. Scotty’s journey has been described as the quintessential Australian success story. His business and leadership education were learnt on the job, and he was willing to try new things and didn't follow the norms. Scotty did things his way, and as he said, he failed a few times and things weren’t always perfect. But through pure grit, determination and focus, he built a great culture, a great team, and he developed as a great leader. And all these things combined, helped create a hugely successful business. Dive in and learn how to build a trillion dollar culture, as well as some of the ‘Scottyisms’ which created the foundation for his business success.   If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...
