    As humans, we often shy away from scenarios that make us uncomfortable or nervous. Don't worry, it’s our brains trying to protect us. The thing is, great people first leaders don’t shy away from loss or conflict, they embrace it.

    In this episode, Sven and Chris Lin also discuss Sven's upbringing in communist Germany, his experience in the army, the importance of emotional logic, and embracing conflict.

    Aligning ACTION with Organizational Values with Jennifer Thompson

    Aligning ACTION with Organizational Values with Jennifer Thompson

    The world is getting smaller as access to information gets easier and more readily available. This makes it even more important for leaders to understand what their values are and to be prepared to take a stance on it. Even more important is to have these values be reflective of humanity and hopefully in a way that leads people first.
    Jennifer Thompson comes on the podcast to share her tips as an executive manager and public relations professional for aligning organizational action with their values.
    Jennifer and Chris Lin talk about the importance of cultural competency, individualism in the workplace, and the application of humane orientation to better the employee experience.

    The Truth Hurts, Do Something with Katherine McCord

    The Truth Hurts, Do Something with Katherine McCord

    How many times have you been asked for feedback and then nothing came of it?
    According to Katherine McCord, leading people first is about servitude and taking action when something is brought up.
    This is why recruiting, diversity, equity, and inclusion can be so hard, and at the same time is so ripe for transformation.
    Katherine has been fascinated with recruiting since childhood. She has strong experience recruiting everything from Customer Service to CFOs, and has a background in process improvement and growing employee satisfaction. She founded Titan in 2014 with the dream of innovating hiring, and to help entrepreneurs realize their visions without breaking the bank. She is also striving to improve the hiring process on a national level by spreading good practices and generating proactive conversations via media. In April 2020, she founded a career show, https://www.careerlaunch2020.com/ (Career Launch Live).
    Katherine and Chris Lin talk about how the organizations need to be revolutionized like the candidate experience, recruiting, and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

    The Intersectionality of LGBTQIA2S+ Ageism: A L.E.A.D. Pride Series (Part 1)

    The marginalized community of those who identify as LGBTQIA2S+ is already severe, dealing with a range of hate and ignorance from invisibility to harassment to violence and death.
    The Leaders for Equity, Allyship, and Diversity wanted to dive deep into the intersectionalities of those within the LGBTQIA2S+ community and bring to light those who are often forgotten.
    Kicking off part one are Heather Holmes, Mandy Carter, and Michael Sachs to discuss how Ageism frequently leads to them being forgotten, and their identities ignored.

    Identifying common pitfalls when designing training or programs for diverse audiences or on diversity

    Teaching the use of a unique type of persona to tailor your instruction to your audience
