Episode 98 – Renee Smith.

Founder and CEO of A Human Workplace

I really enjoyed this conversation with Renee Smith who opens our conversation with one of the most vulnerable personal stories of vulnerability shared on this podcast so far. 

Renee really does role-model the change she wants to see in the world, bringing the importance of love to the workplace, however, people wish to name or adopt that.  We also discuss leadership, culture, vulnerability, courage and much more. Some key highlights include: – 

“We want to contribute; we want to matter. We want to be cared about ourselves. Of course love belongs at work and when we are in a condition when we feel love, we give and do and be our very best” – 09.20 – 

“You are a good investment. Invest in yourself. I was worthy of investing in” – 11.45 – 

“We need to be creating an environment where you stop, and we turn and we face someone to truly listen to them,  and we look them in the eye and we turn away from our devices and our computer and we hear them.” – 36.10 – 

“Tell me a story about a time when you felt afraid at work and tell me a story about a time when you felt loved or any version of that at work?” – 38.00
