TP 37: Sacha and Sonya

By | October 11th, 2017|Future, Leadership, Tall Poppy|

Do you have teenagers? Are you raising the next generation of leaders? Sonja and Sacha have been working with young people, speaking in schools and cultivating a wealth of knowledge about how to empower young people and support them to make better choices.

You can tell how much I enjoyed this interview by how much laughter there is, often I'm a bit on the serious side, but this interview was quite different. I had [...]

Wanted: Progressive or curious organisations interested in Unconscious Bias and it’s impacts on decision making, recruitment, diversity and workplace culture. I’m offering 60-90 minute workshops in October and November as part of the Do It In A Dress Campaign. Google has made their Unconscious Bias Workshop Materials available on a non-commercial basis. A perfect opportunity to raise funds to help educate girls in Africa while delivering the workshop to workplaces in Melbourne….in a dress. Why? Here’s the backstory. I have the privilege of a university degree. Yet I have experienced discrimination. Much of it subtle ‘micro-exclusions’ and some speculative. [...]

Accountability Tools

By | September 26th, 2017|Change, Coaching, Productivity, Self-Awareness|

It can take a lot to achieve a goal and sometimes we need support to hold ourselves accountable. There are plenty of resources that talk about apps and mindset, advising you to measure progress and manage your energy not your time, great I love all of those, but this is really focusing on practical accountability support. If you’re already clear about why you want to achieve, a specific goal and have a good understanding of what the benefits of achieving it are, here is something that might help. I’m focusing here on three areas: technology, internal tools that relate [...]

From this interview you will learn, the impact of worldview on both a personal and group or organisational level, the 6 dimensions of Worldview intelligence, how to distinguish of sympathy and empathy from a worldview perspective, the role of confirmation bias and what [...]

Mutual Mentoring on Success Mentor Summit

By | September 1st, 2017|Mentoring|

You may have heard me talk about mentoring, especially if you're a Tall Poppy Podcast Listener. It's come up in quite a few episodes (Eps 4, 15, 22, 26). And it comes up in the work I do. Both as a consultant and in my current project with Enterprising Wyndham Vale. After I interviewed Claire Diaz Ortiz (Episode 26) about her book, she invited me to be part of the summit, and after a few delays (life happens!) it's going live next week! Claire's interview with me about Mutual Mentoring is part of the Success Mentor Summit and goes [...]

TP 33: Michelle Redfern Advancing Women

By | August 9th, 2017|Coaching, Consulting, Emotional Intelligence, Leadership, Small Business, Tall Poppy, World|

Michelle Redfern has a vision of a gender equal world, she does this by Advancing Women. This interview discusses Feminism, Football, Financial Literacy and Leadership. We had a great time talking about equality and diversity, the impact it has on the bottom line, on innovation and the economy. Topics like authenticity, feedback, vulnerability, a sense of belonging and inclusion bring these ideas into a practical on the ground experience of leadership and social change. An example we explored was the AFLW where for the first time in history, women have a professional football league, which has the potential to [...]

TP 32: Reflecting on Tall Poppy

By | July 26th, 2017|Leadership, Tall Poppy|

Tall Poppy nearly didn't happen, and how it looks now, compared to the early episodes is quite different.

By | July 5th, 2017|Consulting, Leadership, Small Business, Tall Poppy|

Founder and CEO Abigail Forsyth shares what she learned when starting the business, what kept her honest, what's changed in the market re: the attitude toward disposable cups.
