This episode features the High Leverage Practice of ‘What Is’ with Kristin Strobel. When faced with barriers of age, gender and looks – once being told “You’re in the room to improve the view” – she simply rolled up her sleeves and built integrity through hard work and grit. She shares how important it is to read the landscape, stay objective and build relationships based on common ground. Not letting ‘what is’ get in her way, Kristin will inspire all to move beyond the truth of the matter.
