48. The Culture of The Living Organisation

Brendan’s guest on this episode is Norman Wolfe - founder and CEO of Quantum Leaders and author of the book “The Living Organisation”. Norman is a veteran in the business world when it comes to leadership and he is a thought-leader in the world of business transformation because of the way he goes about helping leaders do things differently when they’re looking for a culture-change in their organisation. In this episode, Brendan delves into more detail on the specific theories behind Norman’s book “The Living Organization”.  Norman Wolfe has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share and he does so with no holds bar in this episode. He shares tips that can make an impact in any industry and he has a way with words that make it easy to understand the reasoning behind his theories.  Achieving the results that you as a leader are aiming for - according to Norman - could be so much easier than it often ends up being because of his “flow” vs “control” theory. Brendan and Norman discuss this and other major ideas from Norman’s book and they actually get some truly valuable insights thanks to great examples from Norman’s wealth of experience as a business consultant. Leaders can change their organisations by focusing on the context rather than the people -and then the people who you want in your business will automatically fall in line and flourish. Brendan delves deeper into this with Norman, finding out why and how that is possible.  An interesting discussion about a powerful theme that has the potential to change the way leaders lead.  Discussion Points: The Mystical ...

60. The Culture of Ubuntu Leadership

In today’s episode, I speak to Jodie Hill, the founder, and director of a company called Custodians of Change. They focus on educating the world on self-sustainability and self-worth. Jodie is a brilliant speaker and articulates with near perfection a model she created around the concept of UBUNTU. This concept has been around for many years in the African cultures - and it means “I am because we are” - referring to the idea that as individuals, we are better when we are contributing to the collective community.  She experienced this idea most powerfully during her time living in South Africa. Her feeling, now, is that the rest of the world could greatly benefit from embracing an “Ubuntu” point of view - both personally and in business. Jodie shares great personal experiences and examples of people “living Ubuntu” and it’s difficult to argue with the proven success in using this outlook to help communities flourish and take care of each other. This episode is one that will hopefully help you see the ways in which you can help others win so that we as a community can win.    Discussion Points What is “Ubuntu”? Behind the philosophy fellowship The “Lebola” system The meaning of “Ubuntu” How Nelson Mandela lived “Ubuntu” Jodie’s experience in South Africa and connecting with the community Jodie’s Ubuntu Model Understand Being Unite New ...

Barnaby Howarth has faced more than his share of tragic experiences in life. From being diagnosed with diabetes at 14, to suffering a torn cerebral artery in a gang fight (and having a stroke 7 days later) to losing his first wife to breast cancer shortly after their honeymoon, to choosing to have his finger amputated because it was hindering his daily life, Barnaby has not had it easy.  But as he tells it, being an everyday “Joe Bag O’Doughnuts” IS enough, doing the best you can day to day IS enough.  Being a regular person who tries to put “small good” out in the world is all you have to do to live your best life. As a former AFL player for the Sydney Swans, the host of the “Everyday Greatness” podcast, and sought-after public speaker, Barnaby doesn’t just TELL an interesting story – he is living one. Discussion Points Why and how do you use the term “Joe Bag O’Doughnuts”? Some of Barnaby’s early stories around the AFL The gang fight and his friends– and subsequent stroke The tiny exercises that seemed ridiculous - moving paper clips and clenching buns The challenges Barnaby has to live with forever because of the stroke Good things/bad things happening to people has no logic Losing his first wife Angela to breast cancer How to move on after the loss What’s the buzz you get from public speaking? ...
