Values are for living, not laminating...
We hear about them. We read about them. We see them on walls. On computer desktops. They’re mentioned and brought up during interviews. Occasionally spoken about in meetings. They’re handed down from generation to generation; We model behaviors around them; but what are they? ''Values-driven organisations are the most successful organisations on the planet. You may think that sounds like a bold claim: It is a bold claim; and, it is true!'' Alexandra Egan welcomes Alan Williams, to RESET Your Thinking Podcast. In this episode, Alan Williams told Alexandra ‘’the biggest gap is the difference between what’s stated on the wall and the actual concrete, tangible observable behavior.’’ I really trust you enjoy this episode with Alan Williams, I'm a big fan of his work getting to know his work and getting to know Alan has been an incredible experience.  Connect with Alan Williams, Managing Director of SERVICEBRAND GLOBAL, a consultancy that specialises in inspiring service for competitive advantage.  Author of The 31 Practices - Alan says, ''We already know that 70% of customers brand perception is determined by their experience with the organization's employees and 41% of customers are loyal due to employee attitude. The 31 Practices method weaves together principles and practices from psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience, leadership and business to significantly enhance customer and employee satisfaction and loyalty. It has been successfully adopted by large and small companies, across sectors from around the world.

3 Steps to Having Ultimate Influence
One of the most stressful things about being a leader is having to ask that one person in your team, who you know will be resistant, push back, to do something for you, and quickly. During my time as Leader in one of Victoria's largest Australian Government sites, I managed over 40 employees, in a very fast-paced environment and things changed from min to min and there were many times during the course of the day where I needed people to jump from role to role. This brings me to what I want to talk to you about today. The secret to how to have ultimate influence. See, leadership is not about making someone do something for you, it’s so much more than that. It's about how you make people feel and if you focus on that, then that’s the key to great leadership. It's the key to effective communication. It’s the key to people… When we make people feel like they matter like we get them, we connect on a deeper level with them and everything flows from there. What’s critical is learning the skill of decoding how something works from the context of structure and knowing the patterns. In this podcast,  I share with you the strategy I used to have influence. It helped me to focus, instead of allowing my emotions to get in the way.

A Lesson Learned...
What if for the next 30 days you: ✅Critise no one ✅Engage in no gossip ✅No rumours ✅No judgement of anything or anyone As leaders, we are observed every minute of every day. Being a Leader is not an easy gig, that's for sure. As leaders, no matter who we are, how good we think we are, how long we've been in leadership for or how much we think people like us, we're always on show. And whether you like to believe it or not, people will judge you. All the time. In fact, as human beings, we are meaning, judging making machines. Your people are looking at YOU all of the time. What if for the next 30 days you stay silent and observe?

Six Steps to Executing a Successful Plan
The greatest plan in the world is useless if it is not executed correctly. Managing crisis situations can be stressful and let's face it, no one expects a true crisis to strike, especially when it directly affects you, your business and your team. 2020 has been quite the experience, wouldn’t you agree? Being forced to act quickly in a difficult situation when we least expect it. The best way to minimise the effects of a crisis is to have a well-developed plan of dealing with it and then successfully executing it. Too often I hear people, managers, leaders say, I just wish things would just go to plan… Here’s the thing, If you’re planning for something that involves you and only you, then generally speaking the execution, if planned right, should be straightforward and things should go to plan. When it comes to involving other people, however, the key to the successful execution of the plan is effective communication, it’s having the ability to be behaviorally flexible. it's knowing HOW to use the right language in a way that resonates with everyone on the team, that they understand it and are on the same page. In this episode, I share with you the 6 steps to successfully executing a plan and gear up for 2021.

EP 17 - Handling Tough Conversations
A guest on Empowering Leaders Podcast, today Yaja and I had a conversation around how we handle those tough conversations that can appear challenging. Why do some people shrink at the thought of having difficult, challenging conversations, and why others see them as opportunities? We explore why people respond the way they do and how they can create new ways of responding and communicating.

How we communicate and why...
Effective communication and breaking down communication barriers starts with knowing ourselves and then having the skills to notice others. To be effective communicators, we must become experts at observing others. Once we know what to look for, the next step is to know what to do with it. In this episode, I will give you a helicopter view on how to develop these skills and improve your ability to notice and observe others. It's useful to learn how to observe nonverbal behaviors in people. Calibration skills are best learned in person, demonstrating, and enabling you to have the experiences that help you refine your skills continually.

To change our actions, we must be prepared to change our thinking
In this episode, I share with you a structure, a methodology on how to move from effect to cause, from unclear to clear, from nonresults to results, from good to great, keeping you focused and enabling you to expand and evolve your thinking to the next dimension. To change our actions, we must first be prepared and willing to change our thinking. What this means, is to change our thinking, we must be willing to challenge our own built-in desire for the ‘status quo’ and for certainty in an uncertain world. One thing's for sure, absolutely no decision has power unless you commit to taking action and certainty comes only when we become more flexible in an ever-changing world. The flexibility of our thinking is therefore the key to our success.

Establishing trust as a mentor
In this episode, I was interviewed by Yaja from Empowering Leaders, where we discuss how to establish trust as a mentor.  Trust IS NOT showcasing the things you know this is not enough to build trust... It's so much more than that. Trust works on different levels.  It’s the most valuable currency there is. And there will always be hesitation when there’s low trust. Developing our mentor skills is crucial because here's the thing, we mentor all the time, whether we're aware of it or not...
