In this episode of the Balance Boldly Podcast with Naketa Ren Thigpen, we meet Harmony HR Expert, Lauren Williams. She talks about her journey into a human resource, the importance of building trust in the workplace, and what makes her feel confident with her clients.
Change is a scary thing. Even on a very small level, even if you’re used to taking the same route to work every day, and suddenly you have to get rerouted and take a new way it can, it can feel jarring. And organizationally, when there are changes, people aren’t very comfortable because they don’t know what that means for them. – Lauren Williams [5:36]
