64: EDRM Crossover with Mary Mack & Kaylee Walstad
Stellar Women is delighted to launch our first crossover podcast of 2022 with our friends and partner, EDRM. In this episode, Blair and I joined Mary Mack and Kaylee Walstad to share how we have been faring the last few months (spoiler alert: we are in good spirits)! We also dove into why we are focusing on small acts of kindness this year, and shared personal examples of how these acts have manifested in each of our lives.
Be sure to listen as we share what the transition back to the office has looked like for some folks, and why it is important to give your pets, spouses, children, and most importantly yourself, a little bit of grace in yet another transitional time.
63: Julia Hasenzahl on Employee Happiness & the Double Burden
This month’s Stellar Women guest—Julia Hasenzahl—kept it real, allowing for an engaging and substantial conversation with hosts Mary Rechtoris and Mila Taylor. Throughout the episode, Julia shares how leadership polls their employees each week to gauge happiness, in hopes to identify areas for improvement. Interestingly, Julia notes the goal is to not get a 100 percent happiness score nor is the goal to get 100 percent participation. Rather, their goal is simple—assess where people are and understand how all the factors in the organization influence that score.
Julia also talks about the unfair societal burden that is placed on female professionals, and why corporate policies about flex work do not go far enough if they are not explicitly targeting both female and male employees.
