Founder Journey: Leaning into Vulnerability and Building Community Stop Blaming Avocados

    • Education

Sara Chandran is the Founder of Fresh and Fearless, a consultancy that helps organizations build brave initiatives to create a workplace that is inclusive for all.

Sara is an empathetic, people-first leader and change-maker. Throughout our episode, Sara gets real about the founder journey - the joys and the difficulties. She'll share how her personal experiences, including loss, grief, and redundancy, have helped inform the type of organization that she is building - one that supports its people (its employees) both personally and professionally, and one that champions vulnerability and celebrates diversity.

We discuss the importance of finding and building community, loneliness and mental health, creating companies that fully supports your values, and how to be fresh and fearless in everything that you do.

"At the end of the day, we're hiring humans, we're hiring people. We're not hiring machines, we're not asking machines to do this work.

So that means emotions, that means mental health issues. That does mean different aspects that people will be bringing to work. And you have to flex to be able to enable someone to do their best work." - Sara Chandran
