Self – Efficacy: Taking the conversation beyond confidence

With Professor Amalia Di Iorio and Megan McCracken. The whole confidence myth - is it time it was busted! Our guests in this podcast say yes and they take two different angles on this topic. Professor Amalia Di Iorio explains how self-efficacy is the key to increased female participation on boards and executive level roles. We discuss the four constituent parts of self-efficacy and how important it is for us as women to seek these four component parts for ourselves and how critical it is for organisations to support their female talent in these 4 constituent parts to better enable success; Experiencing small successes Having strong role models Being given immediate and constructive feedback Being willing to take on new tasks as challenges Megan shares insights from her extensive operational experience and talks about the importance of fixing systems (in contrast to fixing women). Megan’s passion for supporting women in how to navigate ‘broken’ systems, and the capabilities that can help us as women to achieve this shines through in this conversation.

Self – Efficacy: Taking the conversation beyond confidence

24/7 flexibility at Pepsico!

In this episode we are delighted to speak with two leaders form the Pepsico business, from the Tingalpa snack foods facility in Queensland, where they are having great success in extending flexible work options to their shift based teams. Instilling a flexible work culture has been a journey for Pepsico across all their functions, and they have pretty much nailed it, with their ‘One Simple thing’ approach to conversations around flexible work requests earning them a WGEA Employer of Choice Citation this year. Jason Webster, Senior Supply Chain Leader and Plant Manager at Tingalpa and Stephanie Ridge, HR Manager for the site, share their approach to flexibility on site and give examples of how well it is working for their people and their operation. At NAWO we are passionate about Flexibility because we know it is a key enabler of increasing female participation in the workplace, however what is beautiful about enabling flexibility in your workplace is it benefits everyone, regardless of gender and the Pepsico example really demonstrates this. Attracting a diverse workforce to shift based teams requires businesses to look critically at the overall package they are provide to employees, to attract them into the business and retain them. Pepsico’s experience proves that shift work can provide very interesting opportunities for flexibility if there is a willingness to consider different models, think laterally and invest in skills development across teams. Key Learnings: A workplace culture of trust is a pre-requisite to successful implementation of flexible work Principle-based leadership and reference to clear principles directly applicable to flexible work requests is vital as the foundation for encouraging requests for flexible work and having open and honest conversations about how they can be accommodated An investment in cross training/skills development for front line team members is integral to enabling flexible options Positive role modelling of the behaviours around flexibility, in line with principles, from leaders is extremely important Clearly articulating the level of flexibility that can be enabled for particular roles and job classifications (e.g low, moderate and high flex roles) manages expectations from the outset There are huge benefits to implementing this approach to flexible work for sites with long tenure in regard to transition to retirement Extending opportunities for flexibility beyond traditional parameters (i.e. part time or casual work for mothers returning from leave) provides enormous retention opportunities for all employees (studying, transitioning to retirement, sporting commitments, parenting, elder care, commuting problems, faith etc) Attached here is a Linked In article I have written reflecting on principle-based leadership - what it is and why it matters and a short slide deck providing some example principles specific to enabling flexibility. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/principle-based-leadership-what-why-matters-louise-weine/

Leading with Authenticity Knowing Thy Self

One of NAWO’s key learning priorities is Authentic Leadership and the NAWO network provides many opportunities for people to better understand and explore this concept. We are introducing another opportunity for NAWO members to embrace their authentic selves at an even deeper level, with the introduction of Mim Bartlett’s Change Up Program in 2019. Ian and I were lucky enough to participate in this program last year and we took away many insightful learnings about ourselves and others and made many new friends through the experience. What I came to fully understand, is that authentic leadership requires honest self-assessment, that we never stop learning about ourselves and our relationships with other people and that the more integrated we are across all aspects of our lives the more successful, centred and healthy we can be. In this conversation Mim, Ian and I reflect on some of the key concepts explored in her intensive, action oriented program and we hope it inspires you to want to learn more about this opportunity being offered through the NAWO/Change Up partnership. The program runs over 4 sessions – 6/08/2019 – ½ day, 27/08/19 – ½ day, 17/09/19 full day and 15/10/2019 ½ day. The NAWO member rate for this program is $2750 per participant. You can register via the NAWO website. To learn more about Mim please go towww.mimbartlett.com.au

Leading with Authenticity Knowing Thy Self

Engaging the hearts and minds of men in gender balance

Simon is the Group General Manager Operations for the Beverages Division of Orora Ltd, and Marcus is the Executive General Manager Production for News Corp. Simon and Marcus share their own personal motivations for actively leading toward more inclusive work cultures and share their insights for better engaging the hearts and minds of men in cultural change to achieve better gender balance. We also touch on the importance of male leaders taking action and discuss some key takeaways from the you tube video linked for you here called “how to start a movement” – we are sure you will have a bit of fun watching this.

Engaging the hearts and minds of men in gender balance

Do you need a Nanager?!

I vividly recall the challenges involved in navigating childcare and have to say I took a different approach with each of our three children. My girls experienced childcare, family day care, nannies and after school care and sometimes mixtures of all of them! All forms of childcare have their advantages and disadvantages – for both parents and children, and weighing up all the options to come up with the best solution or your family is a complex task fraught with high emotion! With the primary objective being the best care for your child, there is also the overlay of financial capacity, and the scintillating task of staying on top of the regularly changing Government rebate system! I took the nanny option once I had more than one child and needed greater flexibility, and I was very lucky to find two fantastic nannies who my children loved. However the question of whether they would be willing to do additional domestic duties while the children were having down time or sleeping was ...
