Shira Grife and her boss Sara Rodell join us on the podcast to rehash an actual conversation they had, each reflecting on their thoughts and perspectives in the moment.
Why would we do that? Because it’s as real as it gets.
No theory here, just an actual step-by-step breakdown of Shira deciding to (in her words) “say things I shouldn’t say to my boss” and how Sara reacted in real time.
It’s a master class in empathetic management, packed with actionable advice along the way.
P.S. Stay tuned after the closing credits for an extra (conversational) treat.
In this episode you’ll learn:
What motivated Shira to start a brave conversation with her boss.
How to, as a people manager, create space for brave conversations.
Why “what’s best for the company” shouldn’t be your only north star.
Tactical ways to support unengaged or burned out employees.
What to consider before embarking on a brave conversation with your boss.
