Navigating Massive Cultural Shifts at Uber (with Becky Karsh)

From navigating a very public CEO change to shifting focus from rideshare to delivery service in the face of COVID-19, Uber is no stranger to adapting to unexpected challenges.
Join Becky Karsh, Head of People Development at Uber, as she walks through how this $11.3B company uses empathy to navigate massive cultural shifts.

The ROI of Kindness (with Claude Silver)
Scaling up is often synonymous with the death of company culture. The larger you grow, the more you lose touch with your people, right? Wrong, Claude argues. It doesn't have to be that way.
When boss and friend Gary Vaynerchuk tasked her to "touch every single person and infuse the company with empathy," Claude knew she had to make every employee at a 900+ person agency feel welcome, seen, and inspired with shared purpose in order to push the business mission forward.
In this conversation, explore the tangible business ROI of kindness. Learn why letting your people know they matter is how you create career-defining experiences. And that you can make your business better by first making people better.
