Inspiring

I have always enjoyed Simon’s work. Now I love listening to him banter and dig deep with his guests. I have saved more episodes of this podcast than any other because they inspired me to change my perception and attitude toward things.

Find your joy!

Simon clearly ok with giving voice to The racist ideas of CRT

For the record, I have always liked his books and business insights. But the first podcast I listen by him didn’t coincide with any thing he teach. In fact he just gives voice to racists who espouse critical race theory in the corporate environment. And this is something that should not be advocated by ANYONE. All CRT does is attempt to disqualify white people from having any voice on cultural and political issues. DEI is a scam and I can’t believe someone of Sinek’s caliber would allow this on his podcast. Shame on him.
