Research-based AND human

I appreciate the resources and references coupled with the background and experience doing HR work. Very clear, direct and enjoyable to listen to because of the conversational tone and interesting opinions.

BBC829 ,

Such an engaging podcast

I love the varied topics and love even more the way Traci creates conversations that meander and inform at the same time. If you haven’t listened yet - I highly recommend you do. Pick any one - it will inform and challenge you to think differently about the topic.

I may be biased, but her latest podcast is with ME! I loved every minute of my conversation with Traci!

cip0729 ,

Great Information, applicable in so many areas of HR!

I came across your podcast this evening and have listed to several episodes! I found them very informative, and love the humor also! I did look for a place to send email or questions and could not find it?
