Imagine going to get coffee for your team and finding your coffee maker had been repossessed.

In the early 1980s, Barry-Wehmiller was in trouble as a business, but we learned to embrace the lessons that arise during times of adversity and uncover the opportunities hidden within periods of crisis.

I tell this story in my book,  Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring For Your People like Family, co-written with my friend, Raj Sisodia. But, to celebrate the 50th episode of the Everybody Matters Podcast, we talk about that challenging time in Barry-Wehmiller’s history in greater detail. Many of the lessons we learned during that time were lessons that informed our journey to Truly Human Leadership more than a decade later.
