Celebrating its 100-episode milestone to kick off the new year, the Secrets from a Coach podcast helps listeners to start year strong. Hosted by wellness coach Debbie Green at Wishfish and TEDx speaker Laura Thomson-Staveley at Phenomenal Training. The duo will be discussing how to start as you mean to go on, future proofing our human edge and team working for success in early 2023.

The topics for January, February and March include:
January: start as you mean to go on
The January four-part series explores how to set intent for the now, the near and the future.
By being able to identify what’s important to you to create a plan that enables a sense of freedom and focus, within a framework to keep you on track, as you navigate your way through the new year. Rather than function on autopilot, they’ll discuss how setting your intent gives you choice, opportunities and possibilities as you head into 2023 and beyond.
Recognising that employee engagement is a hot topic regardless of the time of year. The podcast will also discuss how employee engagement is a two-way street. Understanding your people, delivering on promises, being visible, clarity around vision and valuing each contribution your people make can help engagement to soar.
February: future proofing our human edge
The February podcast series looks at ways to continue to be your best self and on top of your game, regardless of the changes and new innovations that are coming your way in the workplace.
As Chat GPT takes over the world, the podcast focuses on the things we can do to maintain our everyday human-edge skills that cannot be replicated by robots. Looking at better ways to connect, innovate, engage and empower, February is not only a celebration of love but knowing how to get the best out of everyday conversations to build stronger.
Using our human skills of caring, creativity, collaboration and curiosity, Secrets from a Coach looks at ways to have engaging and motivating conversations. As well as how to develop, review and improve on ideas. No robot can do that quite yet!
Special guest this month is Dr Trudi Taylor a qualified professional coach, coach supervisor and Human and Organisational Performance Change Partner, who shares her wisdom and experience of creating collaborative conversations.
MARCH: all about the team
Exploring the world of teams, March looks at shifting conversations above the ‘drama line’ to setting a team up for success.
Now more than ever, we’re being asked to work at a fast pace, with less resources, so we need to know how to minimise politics and maximise pace. Whether you’re in a hybrid working environment, face to face or a mix of the two – matrix working is the new norm. Knowing how to empower our teams is a key skill for all leaders, but it’s down to each and every one of us to be accountable for clearly conveying a message.
Collaboration and showing care
It’s all about collaboration and showing how we care about others. So, whether you are new into your organisation or moved from another department – you will learn the skills to make or break the relationships through your words, actions, behaviour and attitude.
Discovering how to create a team that works together and thrives, regardless of the challenges or opportunities it’s presented with, means that work can be a place that enables you to be your best self and enables others to do the same.
