Are you Ready for Interview Action?

Passionate about change, a project, your industry or is there something in your enterprise or business that's newsworthy? Then it's likely you will find yourself yourself preparing for an interview soon.  It's a great opportunity to share your messages and bring attention to your topic, project, innovation, change etc.  Here's a step by step Checklist to ensure your interview is a success each and every time. And that any nerves are kept in check along the way!  I remember my very first radio interview just like yesterday!!  The journalist told me I would be fine and she was just going to ask me a few questions, it would be like a chat and would feel very natural.  I have to say, with a few more interviews down, this couldn't have been further from the truth. Every single interview requires preparation to make sure you get your key messages across and no matter how many interviews I do, I still do the preparation as if it was my first.  Take a look at these key steps and take time in your preparation.  I have found this to be the only way to front up to an interview with confidence.......

12 Commitments of Leadership

Leadership is a large topic.  It is essential to those looking to influence positive change.  It is easy to see both effective and ineffective examples of leadership in action.  A great question to ask is "What makes the difference?" We think the difference comes down to understanding the practices and commitments of effective leadership. We have developed 6 practices and 12 commitments of Inspired Leadership based on the work of Kouzes and Posner.  We find that shining a light on these helps in being able to develop and implement effective leadership on a day to day basis.  You can see them below and then download your very own poster copy for free.  We suggest you display the practices and commitments poster where you will see it each day. We'd love to hear your feedback.  Does the Inspired Leadership poster demystify leadership for you?  Email us here.

2017 Year in Review

I want to share a key activity we do here at RuralScope each and every January.  It's a simple one and is great for team building as all staff can participate.  But the best part of all is that it cleans the slate ready to bring in new things for the year ahead. We call it CLEANSWEEP.  We grab our diaries and go through each month identifying key things we did / achieved / mucked up etc etc for each month.  And through this process we jot down the highlights as we go.  And we also acknowledge things that didn't go to plan and let them go.  It is a fabulous time for each of us to reflect, review, acknowledge, let go and celebrate.  One thing I know for sure is that it creates pride and allows each of us the time to re-calibrate for the year ahead.  We have just completed our CLEANSWEEP, here's what we found.....

Create a Vision Board for Business

For almost a year now, I have been involved in a monthly business peer mentoring mastermind program.  It's only 2 hours a month but it has really rocked the 'soul of my business' and led me to question its why and how!  You see, there are times (perhaps even many) when I can find myself and my business lacking in focus, feeling overwhelmed and not sure of direction. This year I am keen to establish a vision framework for my business RuralScope, a process that I can follow to achieve a vision that is clear, ALIVE and compelling!

Our Top Quotes on Leadership

We are passionate about leadership across rural Australia.  Each year we are lucky to work with inspiring, emerging and established leaders.  Through this work we see and feel how important leadership is to them and to others. And we see leadership campaigns in action. I am lucky to have had and have some amazing role models, mentors, colleagues, trainers, researchers, key figures and some challengers in my life.  Each of them has taught or continues to teach me about the importance of leadership in my personal, family and professional and public lives.  I am extremely grateful for this.  Without these people, I wouldn't have the self belief to achieve.  Each year we find quotes that resonate and stick them up in our office and use them as motivators here and also across our leadership programs, materials and resources.  Each one of them has something important to say.    

Here are our current top leadership quotes.....
