That People Thing: Punks in Suits - Personalised Leadership in a Bossless World
About This Show
What kind of leader are you? Are you the boss who relies on their job title, their position in the hierarchy and their status to get stuff done? Or do you think there's another way to lead, a way that's more suited to our 21st Century business environment and more suited to you?
In this podcast, leadership futurist Blaire Palmer, shares the practices, principles, mindsets and attitudes of next stage, start-uppy, authentic leaders with you so that you can discover an approach to leadership that actually translates in to real momentum, innovation and change in your business and creates more and more leaders rather than blind, reluctant followers (whether or not your company is quite ready for that!).
The Punks in Suits podcast reveals what makes the difference - the attitude, mindset and perspectives of the kinds of leaders we need today - and how to shift your perspective so you go from a punk in a suit to a Punk underneath that suit!
Episodes cover self-awareness, authenticity, making an impact through presentations, connecting with yourself and with others, forming a "leadership gang", purpose, needs, values, the future of leadership, current affairs, intuition and much more, all with Blaire's down to earth, energetic, warm style. Come and join her and get inspired.

Episode 33: Secret Source - An Interview with Tom Nixon
4 days ago
Tom Nixon was one of the founders of NixonMcInnes, Europe's first dedicated social business consultancy, working with a number of big name global brands.
He's now an adviser to Founders helping them to grow businesses with purpose that they can be proud of.
I interviewed Tom before I had started doing a podcast. I recorded it so I would have it for reference and I thought at the time that I would provide the whole interview as added collateral for anyone who read the book (which I still haven't written!).
But I thought it was time to dig it back out and share it with you because it's so good!
You don't have to be a founder to get a lot of ideas from listening to Tom. And, if you work in big business, you probably don't get to meet people like Tom very often. He's exactly the breed of next stage leadership thinker that we need to be listening to if big business is going to have any relevance in future.
Check him out at www.tomnixon.co.uk and have a look for his latest project, Maptio.com, a mapping tool for self-managing organisations. The site isn't live yet but you can sign up to get updates as the project progresses.
To stay in touch with me, or find out how you can work with me and bring more of these ideas and ways of thinking in to your business check out the website at www.thatpeoplething.com or just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you.
