This Episode: The Highlights of 2021

In this very special New Year’s edition of The HR Uprising, Lucinda talks about her personal top ten moments from the podcast in 2021, and presents a special selection of clips to illustrate what an impactful and insightful year 2021 has been.

Key Takeaways

  • Short term thinking generally comes down to a cultural issue. Many managers, if they have a role to fill, do not have the breadth of knowledge required to make informed decisions.
  • Scientists have proved that we have more chance of being hit by lightning than we have of being someone who can survive on next to no sleep.
  • We assume that if someone is doing a great job then they must know it. But this isn’t always the case. As managers, we must be diligent in providing feedback.
  • There are ways in which we cause unnecessary stress and overwhelm for ourselves. This is because we have not naturally been taught to perform brain hygiene. It’s similar to a toddler being overstimulated who grows tired when overloaded.

Best Moments

‘There’s a classification of managers being talent producers’

‘Everything we learn in a day is consolidated when we sleep’

‘Diversity comes from this compliance’

‘It’s really important, to deliver that feedback’
