LGBTQIA+ A long road to equality
Just trying your hardest and being proud of yourself and trying to be a decent human being is often seen as not enough and is said to be “accepting second-best”, but that is largely what underpinned the “Blood’s Culture” at the Sydney Swans which led them to decades of unparalleled success–on this episode, Barnaby speaks to some of the people who made the Sydney Swans the success they are today.
Cleaning the dirty racism water in Australia
Water sometimes gets dirty if it has been raining for a long time, so to clean the water you need to filter it for an equally long period of time – Sometimes it feels like it is harder to clean it than it was to make it dirty… And the same goes with racism in Australia – What has been a murky, grubby water supply for a long time has had a lot of good people trying to filter out the gunk… and today – while there are still dirty patches, some people say the water is getting clean enough to drink. On episode 2 of Everyday Greatness, we will see if the racism water in Australia is clear enough to drink yet.
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace – is EVERYBODY’S voice being heard?
Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace exists to help businesses tap into ALL of the power of EVERY employee, regardless of who they are or where they come from. Glass ceilings are being shattered in every industry by once quiet groups of people, but while EVERYBODY is getting opportunities these days, is EVERYBODY’S voice being heard? On episode 3 of Everyday Greatness, we will be talking about what value our guests have seen from employees whose voices previously haven’t been heard.
Trying your hardest and being proud of yourself whether you win, lose, or draw as a young person
It sometimes feels today that to live a life you are proud of, you have to be the BEST – there is not a lot of pride any more, just trying your hardest and being proud of yourself. So how do we get the message across to kids today that it is okay just to give life the best crack they can? On episode four, we will speak to our guests about how we let the kids know that just trying your hardest is not laziness and doesn’t mean you are accepting mediocrity.

Being assertive without being pushy – finding good culture in business
Is culture in business different to culture in everyday life? When kids get to school do they talk about “maximising their output going forward”? And do sporting teammates sit in the change rooms before training and talk about “bringing their best selves to training by adopting a multi-step program which takes leaders on a quest of self-discovery”? Can’t we strive for the same thing in the workplace that we do in the real world? Or is just “not being a dick head” at work not enough? On episode 5 of Everyday Greatness we will find out if you can just be a good human being AND a successful business person, or if they are mutually exclusive.
People with disability adding REAL value to the world
Businesses used to hire people with disability because they thought it looked good for THEIR image, but now people with disability are being hired for the same reason as anybody else – because of the value THEY can bring to a company.
