Welcome to our first episode of 2023! My plan is for this year to be different and better in every way, and I wish the same for you! We are starting with an episode that’s packed with wisdom and practical tips to help us BE BETTER.
I’m joined today by Dr. Jennie Byrne, author of a new book that will be helpful to entrepreneurs and business owners. In Work Smart: Use Your Brain and Behavior to Master the Future of Work, Dr. Jennie teaches people how to be better humans and better leaders. She is an entrepreneur, psychiatrist, coach, psychotherapist, and the mom of two teenage girls. As a brain and behavior expert and healthcare executive, she has the knowledge, background, and experience to help us better understand the psychology of the workplace. Join us for this conversation!
