Listen in as Dawn Shuler interviews Jenny Podewils, co-founder of Leapsome, a company devoted to feedback, employee engagement, and individualized learning. We had a spirited discussion on the challenges that many organizations face (lack of alignment, speed of learning, and organizational health and culture).

Some great soundbites:  “Feedback is the accelerator for leadership effectiveness” and “Feedback is the basis of all learning.”

And, of course, we talked about the Coronavirus and how her company is dealing with it as well as how their clients are handling the new normal.  (Hint: there are some fantastic suggestions, especially with regard to teleworking and maintaining a positive company culture!)
