Bringing together the top minds in business and HR to help you create a more human workplace.

    Betting on You with Laurie Ruettimann

    Betting on You with Laurie Ruettimann

    Laurie Ruettimann is the founder of HRBooks and LFR LLC. She is also a podcast host, an instructor at LinkedIn, and an author at Henry Holt & Company. She joins Steve Pemberton to share details about her upcoming book, Betting on You: How to Put Yourself First and (Finally) Take Control of Your Career, and to discuss current events.

    Working Environments
    If, more often than not, you don’t find work enjoyable, it impacts your entire life negatively. Laurie sees it as her mission to help you work in a healthy environment or at least create positive work experiences where a healthy environment is absent. Organizations often push for productivity without acknowledging that their employees are humans and should be treated as such, Laurie says. 

    The Effects of COVID-19
    The current pandemic has given us a deeper understanding of where contributions live within organizations. Steve believes that there will be a renewed emphasis on appreciation and gratitude for essential workers who aren’t often labelled heroes, but truly are. He adds that this shift in perspective is a social correction that will pull our focus away from things that aren’t important. Laurie says that COVID-19 has presented us with the opportunity to recognize and celebrate our mutual humanness.

    Betting on You
    Steve asks Laurie to give an insight into what her upcoming book will be about. Betting on You is a guide to taking control of your life, putting yourself first, and being your own advocate, Laurie replies. She shares snippets of topics covered in the book, and the stories behind them. She gives advice to aspiring writers, saying that when writing a book, you should start with micro-stories that help communicate who you are and what you believe in. Not everybody can write a book but everyone has a story to tell, Laurie says. By chronicling your journey, you may inspire others to share their experiences and learn from yours. Oftentimes the pain of our past is a present reality for someone else.
