For this week’s Inspirational Leadership Podcast I spoke with Rachel Druckenmiller who’s on a mission to humanize the workplace by igniting resilience, connection, engagement and compassion in organizations, leaders and teams. Recognized by Forbes as a Next1000 honoree in 2021, the #1 Health Promotion Professional in the U.S. by the Wellness Council of America in 2015, a 40 Under 40 Game Changer in 2019, and one of The Daily Record’s Leading Women of 2020, Rachel is a national thought leader in the field of employee engagement and wellbeing.
She has facilitated nearly 300 virtual learning experiences since March 2020 as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator and leadership trainer. Rachel has spoken to leaders at a wide range of organizations, including Citizens Bank, Sherwin-Williams, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Education Association and the American Heart Association.
Here are some of the topics we discussed:
- Why you’re blind to your own dysfunction and how to make positive changes
- Being willing to hear the hard things from the people you most love
- Creating time and space for the experiences that genuinely bring you joy
- How to have the confidence to unapologetically ask for what you need
- Why leadership training around building the human skills needs to be a priority
- How to illuminate toxic leadership behaviors and promote more wellbeing at work
- Why any real transformational process is going to involve pain and discomfort
- How to lean into creative self-expression at work and home
