Episode 13 was incredibly special, because it featured one of our own. Susan’s not-so-little-anymore kid, Yara, joined us for an enlightening discussion on leading with empathy, the importance of education and meeting in the middle. What really stayed with us was this: lessons from the playground translate surprisingly well into breaking down traditional workplace power structures. Yara’s precociousness reinforced the origin story of ABCDEI – specifically the focus on learning/unlearning like a child. If Yara represents the voice of the next generation, we are going to be just fine, people.
