The New P&L speaks to Alex Barker, Co-author - How to: Be More Pirate; Speaker; Coach

The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business

This week’s guest is the awesome Alex Barker. Alex is co-author of the brilliant book, How to: Be More Pirate and a keynote speaker and coach at the 'Be More Pirate' consultancy - an organisation that works with businesses to help them reclaim their power, purpose and potential. We discuss with Alex: · What to do if you are a free thinker, a pirate, within an organisation that doesn’t share or understand those characteristics · The cultural norms and structures needed to define a business in order to set the foundations for pirates to flourish within an organisation · How business leaders tap into the reserve of creative thinking they developed over the course of the pandemic to build the foundations for a culture of radical thinking · Why some leaders might fear a pirate approach in business · Whether self-awareness is the biggest inhibitor to adoption of more pirate thinking · If pirate thinking within teams could also lead to silo thinking To learn more, go to www.bemorepirate.com  If you’d like to join our movement at The New P&L and keep up to date with all our latest news, go to www.principlesandleadership.com and subscribe.

In ‘the Warm Up’, we discuss the a quote of how football doesn’t create character, it reveals it. Do players bring character to the game or or does football create character out of players?This week on ‘the Huddle’, we look at the Sydney Uni Lions with our guests Alex and Nona. We overview the organisation and its history. Stacey shows that she has a big part in the history. Alex and Nona talk about their careers, and why they chose their team and positions. Alex talks about her basketball, baseball, rugby and soccer background, and growing up around gridiron. Nona is an alumni of Sydney Uni, and took the chance when the women’s team was created to play for her Alma Mater. She has come from a very different sporting background, coming into gridiron from cheerleading! We discuss the social aspects of the club and football in general. We look at how Alex was recruited to football and how player can “find their people” in a close knit football community. We check to see how the preseason is going.
