Enrique Rubio from Hacking HR and I speak about the future of work and the opportunity presented to us during this difficult time. We cover topics such as creativity at work, how there is an opportunity to allow people to be more curious and innovative. Trust featured highly in the podcast – could it be that you are not hiring the right people (because you don’t trust them to do their job) or you don’t have the right people in the right roles? Companies are not taking advantage of their talent. Your job as a leader is to not unmotivate and uninspire your staff. Provide a balance of support and challenge. Create psychological safety through vulnerability and transparency. Ultimately, be human at work!
