Our guest today is Tammy Deakin, who in 2020 co-founded coaching and change consultancy Capable Strides with a former colleague. Tammy draws from her 20+ years of organisational and talent development in the water industry to help people get through times of change as effectively as possible. Tammy didn’t quite expect such an enormity of change when planning her business launch – impeccable timing in many ways!
Unsurprisingly this episode covers many aspects of change and top tips on how leaders and their people may deal with them. Our favourite tip reflects the way cabin crew ask passengers to fix their own oxygen mask then help their children or those less able – check your own resilience and wellbeing first before reaching out to help others. The pandemic has likely been the toughest time yet for anyone in a management position which makes this advice particularly relevant.
In partnership with fellow coaching consultancy Skylite, Tammy has recognised that leaders, line managers and employees are encountering many challenges with a workforce that may be either furloughed, working from home or back on site.
To help line managers especially, they have developed a toolkit covering ‘Reboarding’, which considers how best to support people and to enable teams to work productively. A taster of this toolkit is available free of charge via the link below.
Enjoy this episode – and thank ewe for listening 🙂
