Conscious Leadership Now with Helena Clayton
I guested on David Wetton‘s Conscious Leadership podcast and we had a wide ranging and free flowing discussion including how we might find ways to start conversations about love in our organisations, when it’s such a tricky topic to introduce.
Mastering Leadership: The Essential Skills
Leadership consultant, coach and advocate for leading with love
In our current and future workplaces, what part does love play in leadership? with Helena Clayton
I got to talk with the wonderful Karen Graves of the Public Services People Managers Association (PPMA) about how organisations might heal and not harm people, the importance of doing our own inner work, and the need to find a robust and useful definition of love for the workplace. You can listen to that here alongside many other fascinating sessions.
Leading with Love with Chris Janzen - Ignition Show, Episode 19
I was recently interviewed by Chris Janzen, of The Ignition Show podcast about the research I’ve been doing into Love. In it, we talk about messiness of emotions in working life, how I got interested in love in the first place and what we can do to help people connect with more love at work.
Take a listen, and I’d love to know what you think on these and other subjects.
Leading with Love with Alice Reeves of BelongCon, Episode 12
Why does talking about “love” in the workplace make people so squirmy, and why does it feel so alien? What does love mean to us, and why do we need more of it at work?
So many of us feel like we need to separate our “real” and “work” selves, that there are parts of who we are that we can’t bring to the workplace, and that we can’t be honest about how we really feel.
But what would happen if we COULD be radically honest at work, and not feel the pressure to always show the best version of ourselves?
In this episode, Alice talks to leadership coach and author of an original piece of research on leadership and love, Helena Clayton. Helena has been working in leadership and organisational development for over 20 years. Mostly, she designs and runs global leadership programmes to deliver powerful learning and meaningful change in organisations and her past clients have included Lexmark, Virgin Atlantic, Jaguar Landrover and the UK Civil Service.
