Listen to a fascinating conversation with Dr. Helena Lass when Bill Fox interviews Dr. Lass for Forward-Thinking Workplaces.

How can we create workplaces where every voice matters, everyone thrives and finds meaning, and change and innovation happen naturally?

We oftentimes communicate a lot of things that are not as much to be debated with others, but are really just our own processes that need to be dealt with first.
