    Mindful Social

    By Janet Fouts

    On the show this week my guest is Julie Kratz, an inclusive leadership trainer, author, speaker, and founder of Next Pivot Point. We talked at length on what it’s like to live and work through this pandemic while having smart conversations about how we want to be now and going forward. How can we be in the driver’s seat deciding the path we take through and beyond the crisis? What do we want more of? Less of? How do we make smart decisions and choices as we pivot back to unknown territory after this is over?

    Julie predicts that people will seek more purpose in their work. This time has allowed for a lot of self-reflection. With self-reflection generally comes the awakening of a deeper purpose. People will question the purpose in their jobs if it is absent. Having honest one-on-one conversations with employees as they return to work and aligning roles that best fit them and the company’s needs is important.

    Leaders of Transformation Podcast

    By Nicole Jansen

    In today’s conversation, we discuss the landscape of gender equality in the workplace, why the women’s movement hasn’t progressed further along to date, and how men can support and promote women in leadership roles. We explore the difference between sponsoring and mentoring, the benefits of having male allies, the impact on performance and profitability within companies, and practical steps men and women can take to foster gender equality so everyone wins.

    While Julie is a die-hard feminist, she also recognizes that having discussions with women only behind closed doors and leaving the men out of the conversation will not work to create the gender equality women are looking for. Instead, working together to transform paradigms and eliminate unconscious biases is where the work must be done. Julie provides an excellent road map to follow, along with the tools to have honest cross-gender conversations that support all parties.
