Welcome to The Drama-Free Workplace podcast, with your host, Patti Perez. If you’re interested in figuring out ways to keep drama out of your life – at work and beyond – then this is the podcast for you! I use a blend of humor, know-how (with nearly 30 years working as an attorney, investigator, HR pro), guidance (as the author of the best-selling book, The Drama-Free workplace), and wisdom from my Latino (Salvadoran, to be precise) roots to guide listeners through an informative and entertaining journey. Mine is a true variety show, covering psychology, human behavior, law, corporate culture, family, faith, bias, race, communication, leadership and much more. Get ready for a podcast that sometimes includes me talking about a specific topic, sometimes includes a guest (or several) to explore issues more deeply, and sometimes includes a Spanish telenovela-style approach to walk you through some of the real-life drama I’ve managed and resolved as part of my work. I’m thrilled to have you on this journey with me!
