I'm HIV Positive
What would you do if an employee walked into your office first thing Monday morning and shared life-altering news? News that would affect them for the rest of their lives? Would you maintain your role and separate yourself from the employee and only offer professional advice? Or would you see your employee as a human being whose suffering and empathize with them while possibly crossing the professional boundary in order to comfort them?
Join Jenny DuFresne, Host of The Room Podcast, leadership expert, and CEO of Leaders Transform, a business growth training firm, in this episode of The Room, as she shares one of the most difficult days she's had as a leader. She'll share her experience and her decision to "cross the professional boundary" when an employee shares his life-altering news that he had yet to share with his own family and friends.
As a leader with over two decades of leadership experience, Jenny shares her journey and interviews leaders who are willing to be vulnerable with their stories.
