Suzi Sosa, Co-Founder and CEO of Verb
“So when you think about human-centered leadership skills and business-centered leadership skills and meeting your organization and meeting your people where they are, right now, they need a heavy dose of the human-centered leadership skills. They need nurturing, support, compassion. They need someone that can model self-care skills. So when do we ever as CEOs think about how to model self-care? Like that’s a conversation that hasn’t been happening.”

In her experience, she shares how there is no more room in her leadership to take care of people that were previously outside of her radar, and how important it is to stay open and stay curious.
