What can firefighters teach us about teamwork & its impact on the bottom line?
A ton, according to today’s guest Erica Keswin. Erica & I went to school together many years ago.
Since then, she’s worked in organization & leadership development at Hay Group and Booz Allen & Hamilton and worked as an Executive Director at Russell Reynolds Associates. Her book ‘Bring Your Human to Work’ debuts in Fall 2018.
Erica was fascinated by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are actually better at their jobs … they save more lives!
So she crafted The Spaghetti Project, to examine how relationships at work lead to increased performance. It’s based on the concept of bringing the ‘whole self’ to work, with an emphasis on trust & vulnerability.
In this 20-minute interview, Erica reveals how you can improve the level of connectedness of your team, and thus improve your business results.
