Aired 6/14/21 https://youtu.be/QebhBsqjFqk Excited to welcome two experts in their respective fields to talk about talent - from a culture, retention, and hiring perspective. Mark Herschberg is a Fractional CTO, author, speaker, and MIT Instructor. He recently released The Career Toolkit a book that he authored about his leadership strategies and core tenants. He has taught these learnings to MIT students to prepare them for a well-adjusted career in technology. Gus Hattrich is the CEO at Paradowski Creative, a “Design for all Brandkind” agency of about 100 people. He’s been leading the charge on return to office as well as balancing the new world of hybrid work, of which his predominately creative employees are especially affected. This Episode’s Heavy-hitter’s: - Mark worked on startups early in his career as a technical lead, but soon learned he would need to pick up leadership skills to be successful in his career. He developed a framework that was so successful that he was recruited by MIT to start teaching them to students and recently released a book of his teachings on the subject. - We talk about how despite common belief, negotiation is actually a very natural skill. As Mark puts it, we start negotiating with our parents around age 3 over which vegetables we eat, we just need to relearn what we’ve forgotten because negotiations can sometimes be uncomfortable. - One of Mark’s Leadership hacks for improving relationships with his own employees is to pick a proxy to collect feedback anonymously on his leadership style. That proxy then explains the feedback his team has for him, positive and negative, but completely unfiltered. - After reading an article on the benefits of the outdoors on mental health, Gus created an outdoor day camp for his company, Paradowszki Creative. We talk about the reactions and the overall experience of that creative solution as a return to office event. - Gus explains the challenges of remote creative work. People are feeling uninspired and experiencing a lack of connection, so Paradowski has been innovating to alleviate that issue.
