My guest today is Lindsay Verstegen, the Chief People Officer at Shoprunner. Pretty quickly it’ll become clear to you that Lindsay’s career leading Human Resources and People teams has allowed her to think deeply about people dynamics - she could probably teach a class on behavioral psychology. Some topics we discussed were vulnerability, the role of personal accountability and common traits in great leaders.
My respect for Lindsay only grew after this conversation and it’s reaffirmed my perspective that a strong People leader is crucial for all organizations. I hope you enjoy this one!
