Lee Griffith:

Griffith

Carrie-Ann Wade:

and Carrie Ann Wade

Lee Griffith:

Two corporate colleagues turned business

Lee Griffith:

besties who question everything we've ever learned about

Lee Griffith:

leadership

Carrie-Ann Wade:

What started with us putting the world to

rights over a gin after work is now a weekly show challenging

the myths and perceptions and exploring what leadership looks

Carrie-Ann Wade:

like in the modern day.

Lee Griffith:

We're too excited in this launch week, and actually I apologise

Lee Griffith:

for my singing because I am completely tone deaf, but we

Lee Griffith:

were too excited not to send another cheeky bonus your way

Lee Griffith:

this week. We are releasing new episodes every Thursday but we

Lee Griffith:

thought we'd drop in briefly just to let you know what we've

Lee Griffith:

got in store over the next four weeks.

Carrie-Ann Wade:

So we are going to be, honestly I'm sorry, I've

Carrie-Ann Wade:

still got Britney on my brain now.

Lee Griffith:

It's going to be your earworm all week.

Carrie-Ann Wade:

Anyway. We are going to be talking about how

Carrie-Ann Wade:

you build an emotionally intelligent team and we'll be

Carrie-Ann Wade:

covering what even is emotional intelligence?

Carrie-Ann Wade:

I hope you are going to explain it to me!

Carrie-Ann Wade:

We'll save that one for the episode. So we'll be talking

Carrie-Ann Wade:

about what emotional intelligence is and how or why

Carrie-Ann Wade:

it might be important when you're building your team as a

Carrie-Ann Wade:

leader. We're also going to be talking about stepping outside

Carrie-Ann Wade:

of your comfort zone. It's easy I think, as a leader to just do

Carrie-Ann Wade:

those things and act on those things that feel nice and comfy

Carrie-Ann Wade:

for you, but we want you to be focused on how you can step

Carrie-Ann Wade:

outside of your comfort zone and take on new challenges and think

Carrie-Ann Wade:

bit differently as a leader.

Lee Griffith:

And I think we've become experts of how to step

Lee Griffith:

out of your comfort zone, particularly in the last year

Lee Griffith:

with with this little Take The Lead Project.

Carrie-Ann Wade:

The fact that you've just sung Britney on a

Carrie-Ann Wade:

bonus ep I think you've definitely nailed stepping

Carrie-Ann Wade:

outside of your comfort zone Lee.

Lee Griffith:

Exactly. And maybe the lesson there is that

Lee Griffith:

sometimes stepping out your comfort zone isn't a good idea.

Carrie-Ann Wade:

I thought it was brilliant. I'm all for it.

Lee Griffith:

We are also going to be talking about leadership

Lee Griffith:

brands and what they mean and how do you start to build one is

Lee Griffith:

it building your personal brand even a thing or should that just

Lee Griffith:

be left to big businesses?

Carrie-Ann Wade:

I think it is a thing.

Lee Griffith:

Me too, spoiler!

Carrie-Ann Wade:

And we are also going to be talking about how

Carrie-Ann Wade:

you stay motivated as a leader. It's often your role as a leader

Carrie-Ann Wade:

to motivate, coach and encourage others but where do you get that

Carrie-Ann Wade:

from when you're in that leadership position?

Lee Griffith:

Oh, so look, don't say we're not covering the big

Lee Griffith:

topics in the next four weeks. I mean, I'm excited and I don't

Lee Griffith:
