2 days ago
Jennie Moore has been figure skating since she was very little. It's something almost everyone does growing up in Canada. Even today, she continues to perform in competitions and can be found practising at the skating rink alongside her children. She doesn't want to brag but she's gotten very good at lacing up skates for a whole row of kids. In this episode, we talk about how much figure skating has impacted her business career. From self-correcting to being able to accept coaching to listening well, she has always remembered that it truly takes a team to become great. She also feels that sharing her figure skating with coworkers -- even scheduling meetings around practice -- has lead to more engagement and has helped her firm blossom. She says, "People want to know you're human. If you care about their personal lives then they realize you care about them as a person."
