Permission to Speak Podcast. Hosted by Leadership Communications Expert Kelly Vandever. Episode #32 - Jay Goldman - Part 2. Permission to Speak is the video blog and podcast that loiters at the intersections of leaders who want their people to speak up, technology that facilitates connections, and results that serve an organization’s higher purpose.

- Be sensitive to the fact that there’s some job insecurity when you start using data as a sixth sense or adding automation
- Transparency in data so you
