Ryan Stelzer and David Brendel join Kevin to discuss not only why we need to build workspaces fit for humans (think long term success), but some suggestions on how we get there.
- David and Ryan discuss the global nature of unfit workplaces.
- The importance of psychological safety in the workplace and what it means.
