Sometimes in life, we can get so caught up in chasing the corporate ladder that we forget the importance of the work itself.  In this episode, I sit down with Anthony Casablanca as we dive into the importance of not just chasing titles, but working and living with intention and finding a deeper purpose in our work.

In addition, we dive into the vast subject of grief.  Anthony believes that any emotional event that we can experience can cause us to grieve.  This affects our performance.  So how do companies and leaders deal with this grief?  Anthony states that one of the true signs of a company that handles it well is one that engages well.  Leaders that step in before something is off, and acknowledge what is happening before it affects an employee’s performance.

Leaders have to understand that they are an intricate part and a support system for their employees.  When leaders can properly establish that, it doesn’t just build a strong relationship, it also helps build up the employees and creates an atmosphere of respect as well as boosting productivity.
