"A bravespace workplace is one where people can show up as they are, both perfect and flawed, and do great things together. " — Moe Carrick
Most workplaces are unfit for human life. Many are still miserable at work. Despite the efforts of good leaders and managers in taking care of their people - investing and training them as well as creating an enjoyable workplace, they still fail. Why is that?
Something needs to change to create a win-win situation for both the employee and employer.
This motivated Moe Carrick to write Bravespace Workplace, where she puts everything into perspective. She explores how a lot of employers are treating their employees wrong. She recognizes that people are such a huge component in building a great company.
Our conversation is centered around her book - Bravespace Workspace. In the book, she talks about real-life stories about how companies and organizations are into bringing out the best in their people. We also discuss technology's role in the workplace, the definition of masculinity and femininity at work, inefficient managers, vulnerability, braveness, and many more!
Today's episode is jam-packed with ideas for creating a great workplace that's applicable to any organization!
I encourage you to go grab a copy of her book! It's an excellent book for everyone in the workforce, especially business leaders and managers who are looking into a more thoughtful and human-like approach to leading their people and business.
