The Devastating Impact of September 11th, Years Later

Thanks for coming to listen to my podcast(s). The podcasts are a collection of conversations with employees and managers in both large and small companies. They share their stories of support (or lack of) that they have personally experienced.  My guests talk about working through their grief or illness while continuing to perform their job responsibilities. 

I hope that their stories will help managers and company leaders to foster understanding and compassion while attempting to keep productivity up. The two are not mutually exclusive and are very achievable. The end result is beneficial for both the company and the employee.

Click on any of the podcasts to listen. If you have an idea or would like to be a guest with a story that might help others, call me, email or contact me.
