Podcast Episode 95: Guest Highlights Of 2020

In this Guest Highlights episode, the first of 2021, Lucinda takes time to reflect on some of the incredible insights gained from her stellar line up of guests throughout 2020 on The HR Uprising Podcast. Without doubt a year that proved challenging in terms of business, but also empowering in terms of wisdom.

Key Takeaways

  • Certainly, inclusive leadership is not restricted only to those in management positions. It is the responsibility of all of us to make everyone feel part of the team.
  • The Iceberg Syndrome describes the underlying culture beneath the surface of every company – that slowly constructed set of values that shape our business, but which isn’t always clear from the surface.
  • The most critical part of communicating redundancies or other negative news, is to remember that the person being told is the most important person in that room. Furthermore, we must put their feelings ahead of anything.
  • Indeed, in the eternal quest for return-on-investment, we sometimes become blinded to things that matter most – namely that we put relationships at the head of any conversation, and not treat our workers as merely some finite source of effort.
