This month Jude explores the critical skill of managing yourself and others.

Jude Sclater's top tips on managing yourself and others

Unsurprisingly, if you're going to get that desired promotion and achieve a good work/life balance you also have to be good at managing yourself and others. The key to this is in understanding how the brain works, recognising that all brains are different and therefore knowing what works for you won't work in the same way for someone else.

The Blurb on the back of the book says it all ...

At some point today you will have to influence or persuade someone to do something – your boss, a colleague, a customer, your spouse or even your children. In The Small B!G, three heavyweights from the world of persuasion science and practice describe the small changes that make the biggest difference in influencing other’s behaviour.

From the little adjustments that make meetings more effective to the costless alteration that saved a government millions – the Small B!G will provide more than fifty small and immediately applicable changes that can mean the difference between failure and success when persuading others. It is an indispensable guide for anyone who wishes to change the behaviour of others effectively, efficiently and ethically.

Our Stories: Jude Sclater

Written by Bronwyn Huband.

If you’ve been lucky to meet or work Jude Sclater you’ll know how great she is at asking the right kind of questions to spark thought and conversation. She’s been a mentor in our mentoring groups for the past four years and many of us have been lucky enough to work with her.Jude Sclater NZBWN website size

Just over a year ago, after being made redundant, she decided to go it alone – a scary prospect but one she says is about going with what makes you happy and gives you time to think. It’s quite fitting that her coaching is called Think with Jude.

We recently caught up with her ahead of her next mentoring group Career Accelerator, which is starts in March. It’s open to any NZBWN members looking to push their career forward in the next six months.
