28:43 | Dec 11th, 2018

27:02 | Nov 27th, 2018

Ep69: In Sickness and In Health

29:38 | Oct 2nd, 2018

Empathy is more than emotional intelligence. It is also the ability to be curious when you find yourself making assumptions. Lack of empathy isn't always an emotional failure. It's often a blind spot and a lack of information.
Ep68: Platitude Smackdown

29:01 | Sep 25th, 2018

Business platitudes: they aren’t wrong, but they also aren’t right. And they annoy Jodi. There are many business platitudes around leadership – how many leaders there should be, for instance. Even Mark Twain said, “the perfect committee is made up of...Show More

31:40 | Jul 10th, 2018

Ep56: The Red Hen

27:12 | Jul 3rd, 2018

If a company’s core values aren’t clear enough that some people might say “no thank you, that’s not for me”, then they aren’t clear enough. They need to be clear enough to hire and fire by. The idea of "fit" in business can be incredibly dangerous. B...Show More

28:33 | Jun 26th, 2018

This episode is about changing your mindset from “I’d love to do this, but…” to “I get to do this, IF…” We often feel a false sense of security in the idea of a middle ground. But confronting our dreams, to either let them go or pursue them, frees u...Show More
Ep54: Pick Your Lane

25:31 | Jun 19th, 2018
