    Joy at Work: Finding Joy During Times of Change

    Joy at Work: Finding Joy During Times of Change

    We had a hunch: If you talk to leaders who are orchestrating major change inside their companies, joy will be easy to find. 
    We were right. For this special episode, we talked to 4 marketing leaders, live at the ANA Masters of B2B conference. We heard about how they focus on purpose, how they practice servant leadership, how they figure out what’s working, and how they remember that life is short and work should be joyful.
    Thanks to our guests: Emily Ketchen, CMO, Lenovo; Jeff Lowe,  EVP and CMO, Smart Technologies; Heather Malenshek, CMO, Land O’Lakes; and Mike Rucker, Vice President, Branded Content at NBC Universal.

What a great concept!

There needs to be more podcasts like this. Finding joy at work is a forgotten skill that should be prevalent in any office. I hope spreading the message will give the gentle reminder that everyone needs to put their happiness first in their careers.

Really good perspective

This is a such a great reminder to take a step back and focus on what’s important at work and in your life. If you think about how many hours we spend working / connected...it’s all encompassing! This podcast is a great way to refocus.
