“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And then the most you can do is live inside that hope.” -Barbara Kingsolver


Highlights from our amazing conversation: 

Training people to create a culture that attracts good people to their tribes.

It is our responsibility to teach other people how to do what we know how to do. It’s our responsibility in our businesses to be helping them understand the decisions we make, so that someday when we need them to start making them, they get it.

People operations is about impact- the impact you have on other people, and what you can do about cultivating an environment that is about serving people, and helping others.
