Up in the Air

Ryan Bingham flies around the country firing people (sorry, “transitioning” them)—until he finds his job threatened by a proposal from his new, younger, digitally savvy colleague Natalie Keener. In this episode, we do a deep dive into introducing change, examining:

  • How to address the losses associated with change

  • Best practices for communicating and implementing change

  • Why it’s critical to honor the past

  • The experience of change as a leader vs. a team

Hosted by Bud Caddell, Paula Cizek, and Dr. Kim Perkins.
