This is one episode that, without a doubt, affects and will provide value, to every single one of our listeners. This week we chatted with Brandon Smith, The Workplace Therapist, who has a background in clinical therapy, while also holding an MBA. Thus he's focused his career on curing workplace dysfunction - a goal that he says is so lofty that there will always be a need for the work he does. Brandon spends his time consulting with executive teams of all different industries on helping them navigate the challenging issues we all face in the workplace. He also teaches at the Goizueta School of Business at Emory University and is the host of The Brandon Smith Show - a podcast you can find on iTunes, Stitcher and on his site, The Workplace Therapist.

Some of the main topics we discussed in this eye-opening conversation include:

  • What managers need to do to create a safe environment that will allow their teams to thrive
  • The best ways to better connect with your team and why its so incredibly important
  • How to combat and deal with "burn-out"

Be sure to check out Brandon's website, The Workplace Therapist, where he has links to his podcast, articles and various other resources to help you eliminate and avoid dysfunction in your organization.
