Ready to inject a little more humanity into your workplace? To progress toward a workplace filled with “better humans,” guests Debbie Cohen and Kate Roeske Zummer say it’s all about becoming conscious of what no longer serves you and having the courage to try something different. In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, the authors of Humanity Works Better: Five Practices to Lead with Awareness, Choice, and the Courage to Change expose the systemic roadblocks that hinder humanity in the workplace and provide practical strategies for becoming “better humans.”



  • In a culture of humanity, employees need to feel like they matter and that they are part of something big, exciting, and fulfilling.
  • When you start to change, the people around you will start to change; if something isn't right in your workforce, you can start choosing to show up differently.
  • In the book, Debbie and Kate walk readers through five different practices that start with creating safety, working together, claiming value, owning your impact, and daring not to know.
  • If leaders have the guts to say that they don't know what to do, it actually incites and engages people to step forward because they want to contribute to solving problems.
  • You learn and grow from a place of discomfort, and part of that is pausing and seeking to understand what really matters.


Debbie is a thought leader and expert in leadership and management education. With twenty years of experience in coaching and leadership development, Kate is passionate about helping others reach their full potential in the workplace. Both women are dedicated to seeing companies place increased emphasis on the culture of humanity.
