This episode is about people skills for the no BS Workplace Warrior!
JORDAN GOLDRICH (in his own words):
Growing up among working class people, I developed four core values: integrity, results, accountability, and getting to the truth- what’s real. Like many people who get labelled abrasive, I don’t feel good about myself if I, or a team I lead, is not successful. I reacted defensively with frustration, anger and judgement. This was experienced as disrespect.
My biggest lesson from getting fired is that I need to be respectful to people even when my brain is telling me they don’t deserve respect. This is partly because all people are human beings who, just like me, are imperfect and experience pain and suffering. Part of my mission is respecting their humanity and treating them with compassion. However, this does not mean letting them off the hook for the impact of what they have said and done. The challenge is to speak powerfully, hold people accountable and treat them with respect and compassion at the same time.
