In this episode, meet Meredith Fineman, author of Brag Better, Alex Kantrowitz, author of Always Day One, and Adrienne Lawrence, author of Staying in the Game. Each of these authors has taken a hard look at how engrained company cultures and established hierarchies can deeply and often negatively affect everything from worker productivity and innovation to employeesâ€™ basic ability to grow and thrive. Listen in to learn what it means to â€śbrag better,â€ť how to apply the internal structures of tech giants to your own work place, and how to survive and thrive after serious workplace harassment. Plus, hear what it was like for each of these authors to record their audiobooks, and who may think twice before ever using â€śso many letter pâ€™s in a sentence again.â€ť
