Episode 48: Inclusive Solutions

We announce our launch of a collaboration with diversity specialist Jess Pettitt of Good Enough Now! Inclusive Solutions is our answer to organizational-wide inclusion efforts that actually work. The Packard Group brings the systems expertise, and Jess maps effective diversity efforts onto our plan for lasting organizational change. After we get very excited about that, we talk about cutting people or cutting salaries... suggesting the unpopular opinion that some people DO need to be fired. Then we debunk the myth of the first 100 days as a CEO.

The Packard Group went to Africa (most of them- Megan Bissell was there in spirit), and we chat about the experience!
