Episode 2: 11th January 2018

So we made it to Episode 2 – yay! And if you’re reading this then so did you – thank you!

Today we discussed the topical issue of the gender pay gap and the looming deadline for organisations with 250 employees or more. The deadline is 4th April for the private and voluntary sectors and 30th March for the public sector.

Another deadline on the horizon is the increase in minimum wage on 1st April with the hourly rate for workers aged over 25 rising to £7.83 per hour.

Of course GDPR appeared on the show – and you can expect it to pop up several more times before 25th May. Here we give a quick mention to some of the preparation you need to do in advance of 25th May to assess your compliance gaps.

Events highlighted in the show are:

This week we had  look at a couple of book summary apps, Blinkist and Joosr. We are currently using the free version of Blinkist and Tracy has started a free 15 day trial of Joosr. Already she’s read the summary of the book we are going to be reviewing in next week’s show (as well has having read the full version previously) – it wasn’t a complete success….

Then we reviewed and discussed Flip It: How to get the best out of everything by Michael Heppell. A nice positive and uplifting book with some good real life examples.

Finally, we shared our research on this week’s management guru, Ken Blanchard, author of the One Minute Manager amongst others. Interestingly, as we were leaving the studio today a co-presenter told us views on Ken and they weren’t all positive….. come on, you know who you are, share your thoughts with us in the comments below 😉

“The key to successful leadership is influence not authority.”

“None of us is as smart as all of us.”
