How do you get an iguana to fly? Rosie and Claire have found a way
Mar 09, 2024 Season 2 Episode 18
Dom Burch

Rosie and Claire first met over a lunch where they shared their stories about belonging, culture, leadership and coaching. Their ambitions were to create cultures where people felt they didn’t have to be something they weren’t, they were confident to speak up and contribute and leaders brought out the best in their people. Toegther they founded Flying Iguana.

In this podcast we cover various topics related to leadership, team dynamics, coaching, and personal growth. Both Rosie and Claire have a wealth of experience in HR and team facilitation across different industries, including the music industry, television, banking, and sports. They delve into the importance of adapting to change, the strengths within teams, the need for self-awareness, and the benefits of effective communication.

Key points include:

  • The unique backgrounds of Rosie and Claire and how their experiences inform their approach to coaching and team development.
  • The significance of listening and understanding within teams to facilitate better teamwork and leadership.
  • The concept of "flying iguana" as a metaphor for adaptability and change, highlighting the necessity for individuals and teams to adapt to their changing environments.
  • Various challenges teams face, such as conflict, lack of self-awareness, and the need for a supportive and adaptive leadership style.
  • Practical advice for leaders to improve team dynamics and achieve more effective team collaboration.

Rosie and Claire emphasise the idea that teams benefit most when they recognise and leverage each member's strengths, encouraging a culture of mutual respect and empathy. 

Effective leadership involves guiding teams through changes and challenges, rather than managing them in a directive manner. 

Our discussion underscores the value of coaching and targeted interventions to foster team effectiveness, adaptability, and overall performance.
