EP. 12 Are we having fun yet… ?? Why you need to listen to this episode.
Who remembers the mullet hair cut? Business at the front, party at the back In today’s episode Jac and Ral discuss the importance of fun in the workplace – yes you can have business at ‘the front’ but if you’re not also helping create a party atmosphere, then you’re doing yourself and your colleagues a disservice! And did you know serial killers (Hitler as an example) don’t have a sense of humour remember that!   There’s research that proves that laughter and lightness at work helps your mood improve, reduces stress levels, brings you better memory and recall, creates energy and releases tension. What’s not to love?? Jac sees it as her mission to change an environment she walks into if it’s too serious, dull and unhappy. She takes her role as a leader seriously when it comes to connecting with others.   Ral went and trained as a comedian to ensure she could optimise her humour for her keynotes – not only do you get a brilliantly intelligent speaker, you get a funny one too! This episode is worth listening to for how you can use humour to bring more joy into the lives of others and yourself. It’s an important business opportunity and if starting your Monday with a few giggles isn’t enough… wait until you hear Ral’s joke at the very end… *spoiler alert* —————— New Episode Every Monday Follow the show ⁠⁠https://www.instagram.com/keepingitrealwithjacandral/⁠⁠ ⁠⁠https://open.spotify.com/show/5yIs5ncJGvJyXhI55Js0if?si=aCNOdB68QnOGnT0vCTPcPg⁠⁠ Follow Jac ⁠⁠https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacphillips/⁠⁠ ⁠⁠https://www.instagram.com/jac.phillips.coaching/⁠⁠ Follow Ral ⁠⁠https://www.linkedin.com/in/gabrielledolan/⁠⁠ ⁠⁠https://www.instagram.com/gabrielledolan.1/⁠⁠ Produced by Keehlan Ferrari-Brown

It’s empowering and liberating to know when you work best, the trick is to identify your priorities, understand your risk appetite and build in your health, exercise and well being needs, so your days are rich and fulfilling.   You will learn tips like knowing yourself first, deconstructing your life and restructuring your reality.

EP. 5 Networking. Another dirty word? How to make it work for you.

EP. 5 Networking. Another dirty word? How to make it work for you.
Someone once told us their definition of networking was unskilled people getting hired for jobs over people who were actually skilled. But real, effective networking doesn’t involved greasing up to people, nor does it mean handing out or collecting zillions of business cards (does anyone even have these anymore?) it’s actually a systemic and deliberate process of building and maintaining relationships that are mutually beneficial. Ask Harvard   Many of us struggle with the concept of networking because it seems inauthentic. Promoting yourself to get something. Yet those who are well networked will tell you it’s about connection, helping others, being interested and recognising meeting new people is an opportunity to learn.   And thanks to technology, networking today doesn’t have to be a face to face meeting every week or every month… it could be a text, email or Linked In message.   In episode 5, Jac and Ral share 4 great tips on evaluating your current network, how to build your network for the goals you have, how to maintain your network and how to use clever introductions to get in front of the people that matter. They even tell you how not to network… it involves picking brains over a coffee… we aint that cheap!!   And hopefully you’re not the ‘networker’ Dave they refer to in this episode!! ------------------------------------------------------------------- New Episode Every Monday 7am Follow the show https://www.instagram.com/keepingitrealwithjacandral/ https://open.spotify.com/show/5yIs5ncJGvJyXhI55Js0if?si=aCNOdB68QnOGnT0vCTPcPg Follow Jac https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacphillips/ https://www.instagram.com/jac.phillips.coaching/ Follow Ral https://www.linkedin.com/in/gabrielledolan/ https://www.instagram.com/gabrielledolan.1/ Produced by Keehlan Ferrari-Brown.
EP. 4 How’s Your Personal Brand?

EP. 4 How’s Your Personal Brand?
It’s not just for the famous. Everyone has one… even if you didn’t deliberately create one! Ral says your brand is the stories people tell about you when you’re not in the room.   So ask yourself is your personal brand authentic? Does it cut through and adequately sum up who you are, based on your strengths within the workplace and the person you are outside of work? Your personal brand is responsible for you getting hired, fired, promoted, recommended and referred so it’s pretty important to own it! And you need to be strategic, a personal brand doesn’t just happen.   What do you want your brand to be associated with? What do you stand for? What’s real for you? What’s fake?  It’s all about self awareness.  Jac says your personal brand is how you show up in the eyes of others, it’s what they observe and experience of you, these are the facts vs your opinion of yourself.    In episode 4  find out the tips and techniques to help you identify your personal brand, create the narrative aligned to your brand, learn it, own it, familiarise yourself with it and then weave this narrative into your daily habits. It’s confidence building and it’s real. ------------------------------------------------------------------- New Episode Every Monday 7am Follow the show https://www.instagram.com/keepingitrealwithjacandral/ https://open.spotify.com/show/5yIs5ncJGvJyXhI55Js0if?si=aCNOdB68QnOGnT0vCTPcPg Follow Jac https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacphillips/ https://www.instagram.com/jac.phillips.coaching/ Follow Ral https://www.linkedin.com/in/gabrielledolan/ https://www.instagram.com/gabrielledolan.1/ Produced by Keehlan Ferrari-Brown.
