Let’s Talk Leadership – a podcast about leadership and teams

LIW’s purpose is to democratise leadership. We aim to put leadership into the hands of everyone in order to create high-performing cultures through the power of both individuals and teams.

In Let’s Talk Leadership, LIW’s own Andy Chevis (Head of Design and Research) & Juliet Hammond (Research and Data Analytics Lead) talk through the ever-changing landscape of leadership and teams.

Hybrid working, breaking down barriers in teams, thought leadership updates and practical advice for how to help your teams work more effectively together – Let’s Talk Leadership touches on all this and more.

 

You can listen at the links below or wherever you get your podcasts – it’s available on all major podcast platforms.

Leadership Update | December ’22

This month’s Leadership Update focuses on workplace relationships and how important conversations are for nurturing them. As the end of the year approaches, it is important to take the time to engage in meaningful conversations that build strong, lasting relationships.

The November 2022 leadership update is dedicated to hybrid working, and Andy (in Melbourne) and Juliet (in Yorkshire) draw on LIW’s experience of hybrid and remote working with its 150 clients, near on 100 employees and associates spread across 20 countries.

Leadership Update | October ’22

In this month’s Leadership Update, we lean into ongoing headlines about the great resignation, the challenges of hybrid working and quiet quitting. We agree with a lot of what’s written, but we also see good reason to feel optimistic, viewing this period as an opportunity to really shift attitudes to the way we work.

The 3Ws

The 3Ws: it’s one of our core frameworks (we wrote about our other favourite framework the 3Cs here. It’s another great tool to keep in your back pocket, especially when it feels like your team is stuck).

June Showcase – Team Acceleration

How do you improve the productivity of a team? Enable them to create the conditions for their success. This unique perspective is the driving force behind our team acceleration programmes that help teams boost their productivity and decide how to work best to achieve your business’ goals.

Leadership Update | August ’22

As Europe endures a heat wave, employers are feeling the heat too with the Great Resignation continuing to shift control to employees. In response, companies are looking for new ways to attract and keep staff. This is producing a new wave of ideas and lateral thinking about the relationship employees have with work.

Hybrid Working

In 2020, many companies switched to remote working out of necessity. Two years later, there is still tension between employees, teams, and organizations about where work should be done. The answer lies in having an open conversation about effective team working.

Leadership Update | October ’22

In this month’s Leadership Update, we lean into ongoing headlines about the great resignation, the challenges of hybrid working and quiet quitting.

Teams of Teams 

Andy Chevis, LIW’s head of design and research talks about Teams of teams and explaining why another structure change on its own isn’t enough and why the answer might already be in your organisation.

Thought Leadership – Doing to learn

Successful leaders and their teams apply a similar doing to learn process to the execution of their plans. A ‘Plan, Do, Review’ approach embeds learning into a team’s day-to-day activities. Regular touchpoints like sprints, stand-ups and retros enables teams to plan, review and execute plans in the short, medium and long term. Adopting a learning or experimental mindset, where you’re constantly learning means you can flex and adapt activity while never losing sight of your end goal.
