    Excessive Meetings and Crappy Leadership Programs

    He discusses the problem of excessive and unproductive meetings in the workplace and suggests that people need to be brave and just don't go.
    In the second question, Mark acknowledges that many leadership programs have not resulted in lasting impact and that organisations need to have bold conversations about who attends these programs - and why.

    The Reality of Being a Leader

    In this episode, Mark LeBusque discusses the challenges of being a leader and the need for more honest conversations about the realities of leadership.

    Being promoted to a position of authority does not automatically make someone a leader!

    Mark also addresses the issue of new coworkers constantly referencing their previous company and offers advice on how to address this without demotivating them.

    Building Trust and Creating Safe Spaces

    In this first episode of the In The Raw podcast, Mark answers questions from listeners:

    • How much sharing is enough, or too much?
    • How much of myself should I bring to work?

    He discusses the topic of sharing personal stories and emotions in the workplace, emphasizing the importance of finding the right balance and creating a safe space for vulnerability.

    Mark also explores the idea of consistency in how we show up at work and the impact it has on relationships. He provides practical advice on regulating our emotions and adjusting our behavior to be helpful rather than harmful in different work situations.

    Ask Mark Anything (again)

    Mark was flooded with questions after his last "Ask Mark Anything' Poddy so he's had another 'off the cuff' crack at answering questions about workplaces as 'families', first impressions and the importance of gut feel, how to be bold and keep your boss onside when you want to make a career move, dealing with 'idea stealers' and those who 'want to always be in the photo' and taking control of your life design (aka work-life balance). You may agree or disagree with Mark's perspectives here and you'd both be right!!

    Ask Mark Anything

    I love questions with very little notice, and in this weeks episode I share my 'truth' on questions relating to workplace bullying, teaching leadership, leading when there's a personality and values clash, changing a deeply ingrained shitty culture and the mandate to return to the office (good or bad).

    Oh and there's even a cheeky question about age appropriateness to wear a 'man-bun'. Have a listen, get triggered or nod your head (or both) as I give it my best shot.

    Tiff Cook: Who Are You To Judge?

    Tiff Cook is back again and we reflect on the helpfulness and/or harmfulness of data around a range of related topics in this chat, along with how and why we judge people (motorbike riders for me), what makes us like (or dislike) them, and how understanding our strengths and personality styles (more data, incidentally) can help us work, grow, connect and conquer.

    Again this is 'Podcast freestyling' at its very best. Take a listen - I dare you (and will judge you if you don't).
