|  RETHINK Being Human at Work – with Gemma Ellison, Macmillan Cancer Support

RETHINK Being Human at Work – with Gemma Ellison, Macmillan Cancer Support

Gemma Ellison, Senior Leadership & Talent Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, joins me in a productive ‘rant’ about some key issues in business, and most importantly, how to rethink them.

I love the energy, inspiration and wisdom that comes from Gemma. She really knows her stuff.

We get to grips with…

🗣️ The deliberate leader – an important distinction to a step up the career ladder

🗣️ Challenging common beliefs; is treating others how we want to be treated good enough?

🗣️ The bias towards short term metrics and how they drive the wrong behaviours

🗣️ Work-kind – including becoming an activist (thank you Magnus Wood)

🗣️ Knowing the right time to walk away from leadership responsibility

🗣️ The concept of ‘being strong’

🗣️ What we really mean when we talk about changing company culture

🗣️ The power of neurodiversity in teams

🗣️ The value of platforms such as YourFLOCK to support leaders (you’ll love this conversation, Dan Sodergren and Michal Wisniewski!)

If everyone had a little more ‘sensitivity for the human condition’ (brilliant quote, Gemma), the world of work would be a different place.

How are you and your company disrupting the status quo and pushing the ‘being human’ agenda?
