Engaging, Interesting, and motivating
While I stumbled onto this podcast after looking for an NPR story, I haven’t been able to stop binge-listening. Great insight into working well together and getting more out of your workday and workplace! Thanks!!
I loved the misfits podcast and look forward to hearing more of these podcasts! I don’t want to listen to the “rivals make you better” podcast because I get the gist of it and I can live without listening to that one :)
Really enjoyed the networking episode. Found it very insightful
