About this episode:
Nicole Rousseau has made it her mission to help people in the workplace thrive. During a Fall 2019 appearance on The Tightrope Podcast, Nicole described how she helps people and hiring managers work effectively and happily to scale revenues, but also to make the work that they do more meaningful. She has been so particularly effective in her work that clients dubbed her the Queen of the Millennials—it is a hat-tip to her uncanny ability to empower members of the American workforce’s largest cohort. Without hesitation, she took that title and proudly made it her professional brand.
Instilling a Nurturing Workforce Culture
Nicole returns to The Tightrope Podcast to discuss the role of nurturing in the workplace; hiring managers, she says, must look beyond their revenue targets to fulfill the emotional needs of their workplace talent. We spoke in January 2020, over Skype, from her family home in Western Massachusetts.
In the news:
