I love it!!

Ollo I really like this podcast my dad did it!!!

Insightful podcast for anyone in HR

I stumbled upon a MPL podcast episode recently and was impressed at how down to earth and practical the conversations are. The topics and insights are so timely and relevant (even as I listen to episodes from a year ago), and have helped me gain more insights into what it’s like to serve in a high-level people leader role. This helps me to explore whether or not I want to move in that direction in the future, and also to be more strategic in my current work with a deeper understanding of how VPs of people prioritize.
