    2. Harrison Wheeler - Sharing Accountability, Building Teams and Social Justice

    My guest today is Harrison Wheeler. Harrison is a Design Manager at LinkedIn and one of the most thoughtful and outspoken design voices in the industry. Before LinkedIn, Harrison scaled the design team at BaseCRM, which was acquired by ZenDesk in 2018. In this conversation we discussed  what “having a seat at the table” means, being accountable to your customers, building teams and culture and the importance of speaking up on social justice issues in the workplace. Harrison is a good friend of mine and every time I chat with him I always gain a new and unique perspective. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Harrison.

    Introducing 'The Reorg'

    Introducing 'The Reorg'

    I’ve got a question for you - think about a difficult situation or project at work that you’ve recently dealt with. Now think about if that could’ve been solved with better alignment across your company, less bureaucracy or more inspiring leadership and culture.

    I don't think you're the only one here.

    From speaking to friends and colleagues, it seems these problems are all too common - and the results are not good: low employee productivity, misaligned incentives and ultimately an inability to serve your customers.

    This show is for people who are interested in hearing how the best companies think about structuring their work, teams and culture.

    In each episode, you'll hear founders, operators and industry experts share stories on how they empower their teams to get results.

    Welcome to The Reorg.
