Show notes
I invite guests to share personal stories about acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode 74, Sejal Thakkar talks about something her father said that influenced her growth. She then explains Barry Shore’s story and how he practices leadership. Finally, Sejal advises us to practice the Platinum Rule.
Dubbing herself "Chief Civility Officer", Sejal is not your average employment law attorney. As she developed her legal practice, organizations began requesting her to facilitate workshops that are proactive, relevant, and impactful workplace training programs to prevent sexual harassment, bullying, and the effects of unconscious bias. Sejal promotes diversity and inclusion as well as being civil to one another.
In this story, Sejal shares something that her father said that has helped her gain perspective. She then discusses the effect of biases and microaggressions.
Sejal shares Barry Shore’s remarkable story of how he became the Ambassador of Joy. She comments about the high price of stress in the workplace and how Barry works to bring joy with his platform.
You may have heard of the Golden Rule. Sejal advises us to go beyond that rule and adopt the Platinum Rule.
