This week, Em and I take on a few great questions that appear to keep coming up regularly for our listeners!

(0:55) The first question we tackle is from Stephanie, who is about to inherit a team member that is known company wide as an under performer (and quite frankly, pisses a lot of people off!), but her boss really likes this team member and doesn’t seem to see her faults. We help Stephanie work out what to do and how to manage both the under performer AND her boss.

(6:35) Secondly, we answer Mike’s question which is an absolute cracker - how to deal with imposter syndrome. I get pretty deep in this one, and it’s a topic I haven’t spoken about very much, so I really hope it’s valuable.

(12:50) We end with a great question from Pete, who asks us to address how to implement initiatives that have been agreed on in strategic planning sessions. So often great ideas come out of planning sessions, but then 6 months down the track no movement has been made because everyone is getting on with their standard day to day activities. If this resonates with you, you’ll get a lot of value out of my answer.

If you’ve got a question that you’d like us to cover in the podcast, email it through to us at, we’d love to hear from you!

We reference the ‘Six Steps to Creating a Strong Accountability Culture’, which you can download below. We also mention Episode 7 Work at the Right Level: What got you to here won’t get you to there which you can listen to here and Episode 19 Execution for Results: Driving accountability in your team which you can listen to here.
