Making Me Think Deeper

One reason I like listening to Nancy Halpern’s Political IQ Podcast is that I always leave with an unexpected takeaway after listening to her. Her guests are good - of course that goes without saying - but it’s Nancy herself who makes me return on a regular basis. She’s not afraid to challenge her guests, and is particularly adept at digging deeper for a more sophisticated insight on workplace matters.

Rich in practical insights

Navigating office politics can be brutal. So many unspoken and coded messages...Nancy’s years of experience working with leaders and untangling messy issues are enormously helpful to frank extraverts like me who can’t figure out why people don’t just say what’s on their minds... Thanks Nancy. Wish I could have gotten your advice and counsel sooner!
