We sit down for a talk about starting a new business and pushing boundaries as a woman with Sarah Sheehan of Bravely. Bravely has built a next-generation resource for people and teams: a platform that connects employees with expert conflict coaches and “people” professionals called “Pros” for off-the-record phone conversations about all kinds of workplace stress.
No matter how great the company or the culture, there will always be employees who struggle to come forward with issues or concerns. Whether they’re struggling with a colleague or simply feeling stuck, it can be hard to have tough conversations about relationships and performance. The result: people let things bubble up instead of dealing with them head on. That is why Bravely began.
What we chat about:
-The how and why behind starting Bravely (1:30)
-How role playing can help people find their voice (05:59)
-Why speaking to a third person helps with taking feedback (08:20)
-What starting her own business felt like and having imposter syndrome (9:45)
-What piece of lingerie she would be (11:48)
