070: Re-imagining Learning At Work With Steph Clarke

070: Re-imagining Learning At Work With Steph Clarke

Re-imagining Learning

Our love for learning is strengthened when we’re in environments that acknowledge and nurture this passion. However, most of our learning institutions focus on traditional approaches that may no longer be relevant, and we need to work towards re-imagining learning at work.

In this episode of the Business Chat Podcast, I have a lovely conversation with Steph Clarke. She helps organisations deal with hard conversations regarding learning and development. 

Before the pandemic, people’s way of learning was too traditional, classroom-based, and too instructor-led. Now, organisations are employing a more holistic approach to help their employees learn.

There are various factors that enhance the whole learning process and Steph highlights the importance of each one. If companies want to elevate employee performance, they need to establish a safe space that impacts their overall learning experience.

069: Non-Verbal Negotiation with Gary Edwards

069: Non-Verbal Negotiation with Gary Edwards

Non-Verbal Negotiation

The negotiation process depends on what needs to be achieved. The individuals involved can either participate in competitive or collaborative negotiation. Both of these utilise non-verbal cues that support the communication style and goal of the conversation.

In this episode of the Business Chat podcast, I welcome back the amazing Gary Edwards to carry on with the discussion for non-verbal negotiation. 

There are lots of factors to consider when negotiating; the environment, tone of voice, physical looks, and mental preparation. But the main thing is having the flexibility and striking balance with negotiation style. 

How we verbally express our thoughts is equally important as how we gesture our message. When there’s an inconsistency between what we say and how we say it, the people we’re negotiating with believe the negative, and we don’t get the outcome we hope for.

  • Things to consider when planning for negotiation (04:29)
  • Negotiation style for collaborative authentic leader (11:25)
  • The mechanics of a successful negotiation (17:55)

How To Have A Stand-Out Personal Brand

In this episode of the Business Chat Podcast, I have a fascinating chat about personal branding with Monica Rosenfeld,  she describes personal brand as “consciously creating the perception that you want people to have of you.”

To identify an individual’s personal brand, Monica advises going through what she calls the “tree step process.” This highlights a person’s core values, expertise, distinguished physical appearance, and content creation.

Personal branding is more than a marketing term. It starts within yourself. You have to be aware of your gifts and the values you want to live by. By knowing exactly who you are, you can become more confident and consistent with the content you want to share.
