Scaling Collaborative Work Environments with Ann Boger Beyond the Policy: an Insurance Requirements Podcast

    • Technology

When working at a scaling startup, you’ll often hear the phrase, “I don’t want to step on your toes, but…” You might think it’s innocuous enough, but it signals so much more.

I’m joined today by Ann Boger, VP of Scaling at Coterie Insurance.

Ann joins me today to dive into that specific phrase and what it can represent at your company. Is it a sign of healthy growth and the tension that comes from a growing venture? Or is it a sign of a toxic work environment where employees are not encouraged to step outside of their normal roles?

We talk about how to maintain your collaborative spirit in hyper growth phases, the best response to someone who’s afraid of stepping on your toes, as well as what can go wrong when your employees don’t have the space they need to thrive.

We wrap up by sharing some tips to help new employees joining InsurTech startups from large, legacy insurance companies blossom in the startup environment.

After the episode, be sure to visit howyouinsurethat.com for past episodes of Beyond the Policy like when Frankie Arvelo joined us to share tips on obstacles to avoid in contract negotiations.
