Our listeners have submitted over thirty stressful controversies they encounter at work. We have boiled these down into nine common themes like: Best friends at work; managers socializing with direct reports on social media; can talent be “taught in” or hard wired, etc. Join us this week with our regular guest host Adam Roth to address some of these contentious and even divisive workplace topics.
A Great Place to Work
Friday at 11 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
A person’s work and connection to their workplace is a core component of their life satisfaction and self-worth. We spend the majority of our waking hours at work and these experiences either add value or drain energy from our lives and our families. Our program is for everyone who works, leads, manages or volunteers and is looking to get more joy and success from their work life. We’ll focus on real people and their stories across the various roles they play from leaders, managers, sales professionals and team members. How do the most successful people forge the personal and professional connections that make work both fun and engaging for themselves and their team members? Our mission is to help you take ownership in shaping the culture you care about from work, to home, to community. A Great Place to Work is broadcast live every Friday at 11 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
