In this episode, we spoke about the importance of trust in creating not just a great place to work, but also in creating more agile teams and organizations. We also spoke about how to create this kind of trust, particularly when so many of us are working virtually in these times. Michael speaks passionately about how his growing up in a working-class family shaped his personal mission to measure and improve the experience of all workers, and how it is the frontline supervisors and mid-level managers who make or break the experience of a great place to work for all. Michael is truly a transformational leader to watch and be inspired by!
