This week, Patti introduces a new series format for the podcast, focusing on getting back to her roots – keeping workplaces free of drama. This episode also has a special surprise guest, Katie Foggiano, PersuasionPoint’s Director of Operations (aka the Human Swiss Army Knife).
Patti and Katie start by dissecting Katie’s favorite quote from The Drama-Free Workplace, “A culture that is healthy, inclusive, and respectful, can and should be fun.” For more amazing quotes like this, check out Patti’s book, The Drama-Free Workplace HERE.
Patti discusses her podcast “funk,” and the new plans for her upcoming continuous segment called, “You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up.” In this segment she will explore the real-life drama that she experienced in her investigations (over 1,200 of them!). She’ll explore how the issues affect employees and leaders at all levels, and how you can best prevent and manage workplace drama!
