We made it to episode #1 of Humanize Your Workplace and I’m so happy to see you here!

On this week’s episode we chat about:

  • how this podcast came to be
  • why the episodes will be 15 minutes or less
  • what humanize your workplace means
  • why we should move past “treat others the way they want to be treated”
  • three concepts to embrace to hone in on “treat others the way they want to be treated”

As you might know, I’m all about finding pockets of time to get things done! As a mom of 2, business owner, and wife to my high sweetheart (who also travels for work) there is no much “extra” time going around.  So, creating bite-sized episodes for other liked minded folks is just up my ally.  If you’re listening to this in between meetings or on your commute to work, I got your back. I want to make this as easy and digestible as possible to learn something new without feeling like you’re adding “one more thing.”

Humanize Your Workplace came to be as I felt “non-human” in a few of my jobs early on.  I was the youngest by over a decade and people were not taking me seriously.  I never want people to feel that way and think that everyone, no matter how old they are or walk of life they’re from, they have something to contribute to this world!

During my TEDx talk, I mention the phrase “treat others the way they want to be treated.” This is something we learn as kids and at the surface it sounds OK.  But in reality, we aren’t taking into consideration the other person’s thoughts, feelings, and values.  Instead, my clients and I have been using the concept “treats others the way they want to be treated.”  In order to do that, you have to:

  • listen with intention
  • accept responsibility
  • appreciate the other person’s perspective
