This gentleman who specializes in sustainable farming practices added value to my day and I think you'll be glad you took time to hear what he has to say!
I decided to break through the pandemic isolation barrier and start talking to people using the telephone. Dialing random numbers until someone picks up, I'm hoping they will talk with me about their favorite supervisor or job, or their experience in a leadership position. This is my first call and you get to listen in.
In this episode I question the legality of "demanding" people turn on their video cameras if there are people outside of the organization in the meeting. I also provide suggestions for dealing with the potential invasion of privacy when people are working remotely from "home" - if they have one.

Episode show notes:
"Experience, intelligence, and drive matter, but we should prioritize talent." Buckingham & Coffman. Managers and supervisors need to know exactly what talents they need in each role. In fact, they should understand their own talents and how they uniquely fit in the culture of their organization. Then they can work with HR to design an interview process focused on hiring the right talents for the job.
"The ONLY way to generate enduring profits is to build the kind of work environment that attracts, focuses, and keeps talented employees." from The Service Profit Chain.
