Leading Generous Teams

Leading Generous Teams

Leading Generous Teams by Clare Desira (Top Five Movement) + Pro Bono Australia is a podcast dedicated to improving the mindset, resilience and mental health of people working in the social sector. One of the biggest concerns for leaders in the social sector right now is the well being of their own teams. It’s a significant emerging issue. In our first season we have real conversations with sector leaders about the impact COVID-19 is having on their staff - the pressure of changing service delivery, the challenges of delivering on the front line during a pandemic, the financial uncertainty in the face of growing demand; and the mental health challenges of balancing all of this with other challenges, like remote learning. We focus on how leaders are supporting their staff through this time, but also where they are finding their own support, what tools they are turning to and what other leaders can learn from their experience. We’ll leave you feeling hopeful and re-energised with ideas on how you can tackle these challenges and support your teams in new ways. This podcast is presented in partnership by: Clare Desira, founder of Top Five Movement - an organisation that has flipped the script on change mindset, resilience + leadership training for thousands of people across 40 countries.

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      Bone Valley

      Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.

Going through her journals and keepsakes, as well as things left behind by his father and brother, Cooper begins a series of emotional and moving conversations about the people we lose, the things they leave behind, and how to live on - with loss, with laughter, and with love.
