06 | Achieve Your Purpose: The Power of Monthly Progress Reports for Career Transformation
Text The Podgress ReportIn this #HowTo edition of The Podgress Report, host Jen Phillips is sharing her June Progress Report to show how monthly reviews can help accelerate personal change, career reinvention, recovery from burnout, and “on purpose” professional growth. Jen’s a former Marketing Operations executive who’s been using the proven power of monthly business reviews throughout her career. This practice is inspired by the methods used by Amazon, Google, Salesforce and many, many other companies to streamline vision and get everyone working on the “rightest” work.Jen adapted the process to support her burnout recovery and career reset. It’s been a powerful part of her recovery process, and she’s sharing it to help your recovery. Download the Monthly Progress Review Guide HERE. Managers, founders, & aspiring managers…this is a process you can adopt to support your teams. When employees understand team (company) goals, and their role in meeting those goals, employee engagement (and satisfaction) increases. Gallup estimates low employee engagement costs the global economy $8.9 trillion U.S. dollars, or 9% of global GDP. Episode ResourcesGet the Monthly Progress Report GUIDE to help create your personal monthly review. Ask Jen Anything!

05 | "Slow Burn" Burnout and Recovery - Lessons in Leadership with Henk Campher, CMO Deep Origin
Text The Podgress ReportIn this edition of The Podgress Report, host Jen Phillips is joined by Henk Campher, CMO, Deep Origin. This is one for those of you who wish it were easier to disconnect from work, to work better together…and to do it all in a way that respects the rest of your life. Managers and aspiring managers, you’ll walk away with tactics and frameworks you can bring into your team to improve the culture and the outputs. Henk Campher lives by the Ubuntu philosophy: I am because we are. And it is that philosophy that informs his leadership style…in Henk’s eyes, if the team has a clear plan, and accountability to that plan, less meetings are needed, leaving more time for deep work (and the rest of your life to unfold, stress free). Henk experienced burnout firsthand. He reports it was a “slow burn”...something that grew over years, eroding his passion for life over time, and almost without him realizing it. Henk’s recovery leaned heavily into reestablishing boundaries for himself, and his team. This reduced not only Henk’s stress, but increased his team’s engagement and wellbeing. And wait until you hear the benefits this shift brought to the company. Gallup estimates low employee engagement costs the global economy $8.9 trillion U.S. dollars, or 9% of global GDP. Henk’s team at Hootsuite saw a 30 percentage point improvement in their employee engagement when they incorporated boundaries and deep work into their culture. Episode ResourcesAsk Jen Anything!
