Daddyc0001 ,

Brilliant! Exec normies (like me) should listen.

Great insights from Abadesi & Michael across a broader range of subjects than I hoped. Helps me understand my late teenage kids moving into the work place, and highlights the very real challenges of diverse and underserved communities.

Mansplain alert… Michael… it is UNscrupulous - having or showing no regard for what is right or honorable, i.e. devoid of scruples.

Scrupulous is the opposite.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So many gems
