Key Takeaways/Main Points:
In this episode we discussed….
1. “if a Kalamazoo community college can switch to a four-day week and experiment and just say like, does this work for us? I think it’s important for businesses to just question, why have we done it this way?” (01:08)
2. “So most people, you know, they hear things like sprint or batch where you’re going to do all this work….. (09:12) And so in the book, I talked about discovering your sprint type, uh, because someone may try the typical batching sprint. And they’re like, that doesn’t work for me, I guess I’m not a sprinter. But then the reality is, you just don’t know your sprint type.” (08:54)
3. “The way it works is if you get a meeting with a Harper Collins it’s as much me making sure they’re a fit as them making sure I’m a fit. It’s not an interview to try to get me to just join it’s us seeing if there’s a good relationship there and the amount of kind of business books that they are putting out for me felt like a very solid fit.” (18:16)
