Tiff and Mark - Poor Me, That Bad Person and Other Stuff
Tiff Cook is back and as usual we are going around the world on topics, especially around the stories we tell ourselves that allow us to practice victimhood and how to break the cycle on this.

Humble leaders for the win!
I recently listened to the episode with Damon lembi and I appreciated how he and Mark focus on hiring for potential over experience. humble Leaders who genuinely want to build great A player teams! “Get curious not furious” and “hold a strong opinion lightly” both stuck with me. I enjoy Marks simple, direct, and jovial interviewing style!
