“Remember that thoughts are things and they can be empowering or disempowering, but we get to choose what they are.”

- Debra King, Leadership Solutionist

Moving mountains in our communities

For the first time, the digital workplace has become the essential workplace and community in many organizations. It is now a strategic asset, just like human capital. So how can leaders think about their own attitudes to hybrid working and make choices around how they show up in this arena?

In this episode, Nancy Goebel is joined by leadership solutionist and author, Debra King, along with Dr Jesse Tyson, retired President and CEO of the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA). Debra’s recent book, Dare to climb: Your journey can move mountains, is an autobiographically inspired workbook that challenges readers to develop a game plan for their lives, and this provides a backdrop for a warm and open discussion.

As trailblazers and go-givers, the two leaders’ careers intertwined at ExxonMobil, where they both rose to senior executive posts. Together they share enlightening insights as role models and digital advocates in the evolving hybrid workplace and in communities beyond.

Recorded during Black History month in the US, they also share their commitment to outreach and mentoring; leveraging their depth of personal experience to give back and pull others along.

Join us to hear more on their thoughtful ideas and experiences on tackling many of today’s challenges – ideas which can help us to move mountains in our own workplaces and communities.
