Podcast Ignites Regenerative Managers - Transformational

Phenomenal last podcast on engaging and retaining millennials! Your deep curiosity & powerful questions sparked incredible insights for our team. Really evoking and amplifying the inherent value your wisely-curated interviewees offer. The Mindset of the Millennial coach & leader, strategies, and specific management tactics Robert G shared... These are just the type I’d like to help develop, pollinate and measure with my new team in building regenerative workplaces.

I'm going to share the podcast with my Leading & Mentoring through Org Change & Uncertainty Panel.

Both they, and our audience, are very interested in mentoring multiple generations working together. Particularly, building brain-based workplace practices & life experiences for Millennials and others. We discuss socio-neuroscience and the strategies we use in mentoring, hiring, developing, engaging and retaining thriving holistic humans. Super good stuff!

Great insight

Wendy seems to know the right questions to ask. She provides right brain insights that may even penetrate a left brain like mine.
