November’s highlights of Impromptu Business Chat focus on the mental health and wellbeing of business leaders. With the festive season upon us, these episodes are important now more than ever…
In the third of their special interview series, James and Mark chat to Louise Newby from Three Eggs Training, an experienced educator in the world of mental health and wellbeing. Louise is a former teacher and research scientist, with a masters degree from Cambridge, and has seen first-hand the detrimental effect that poor mental health and lack of training and support can have on business leaders and their teams. Her insight is vital, particularly as we close the book on what has been the most turbulent year for us all, especially for businesses and the workforce.
One thing that we have all had to deal with this year is disappointment, and in Handling disappointment – you can’t always get what you want, the team discuss their top tips for how to handle disappointment, and how to move on from it. Mark even opens up about his embarrassing lawn bowls career!
In The art of listening – come on feel the noise, Mark and James discuss the often-overlooked importance of good listening skills in business and in life generally. They open with a fascinating fact which illustrates just how little time we spend on developing our listening skills. Listening will be a key tool in our personal and professional development moving forward into life post COVID-19, so consider these three top tips the team’s Christmas gift to you!
Finishing up with Drive sales in lockdown, this episode advises businesses on what to do post furlough to help increase sales performance.
The team at MHA Larking Gowen wish all businesses out there a fantastic and well-earned break, and a truly prosperous 2021. James and Mark will be back with a special episode on Christmas Day, if you need a break from Monopoly for a while…
