Podcasts & Audio Guides

 

These podcasts will explore how leadership is changing to enable us to deal with the increasing level of complexity in our lives.  They will challenge the assumptions and perspectives of old ‘conventional’ leadership and will seek to demonstrate how it is making our society unsustainable.  To lead us towards a more sustainable society they will advocate that we need new ‘post-conventional’ leadership.   The podcasts will then explore how we can demonstrate new leadership by developing to our highest stages.

 

This podcast is produced as part of Co-operative Fortnight celebrations.  This is two weeks of mass co-operation to spread the co-op word and share the values that make our businesses different. The conversation is hosted by Jill Chapman and Gary King from Create Seven CIC Co-operative.  Create Seven develop and empower people to create a more sustainable future.  They are passionate about connecting and co-operating to transform society.  They are joined by Juliet Mulholland a Member Pioneer and Team Manager for the Co-op in North Hertfordshire, and John Atherton who is Head of Membership for Co-operatives UK. 

The evidence and research shows the importance of nature and mindfulness for our mental health and well-being. However we all know deep down the power and wisdom in nature. At times of stress we naturally retreat to nature and find the peace and ease we seek. This short guided practice is our gift to you in mental health awareness week, we invite you to gift yourself the space and time to listen. Be well, happy and have peace.

When we say to people we believe everyone is a leader, the response we sometimes get back is “no I’m not a leader”.  Further discussion around how we all lead every day can then prompt the response “no, I don’t want to be a leader”.  It has become clear, from their perspective, ‘leadership’ is a dirty word and they don’t want anything to do with it.  Yet from our perspective, we see them leading every day. It is the prevailing narrative coming through our televisions, radios and newspapers on a daily basis, that is leading people to experience leadership as being elitist, divisive and negative.

This is the third and final podcast in the 'Who is a Leader' series. In this podcast Terry, Gary and Jill first recap previous discussions on the concept of everyday leadership.  They then move on to explore definitions leadership and the concept of leadership development.   Once these concepts are established the conversation moves on to how we can all develop our leadership by changing how we perceive, experience, understand and interact with the world.

Most people do not recognise that they are leaders, but in fact all of us are leading all the time. Every time we make a decision or take an action it has an impact on our society. It is the collective decisions and actions of us all that creates our society.  Through our everyday leadership we all create our society.

We believe everyone is a leader and, together, we can create a better future.  We recognise that, traditionally, only the people at the top of organisations were viewed as being leaders.  This podcast explores and challenges this and other traditional views of leadership.
