Translating Personal Conversations into Business Results with Komodo Health’s Kathleen Ragelis
Play • 38 min

There are a lot of taboo topics these days. But some of the most moving experiences happen when we muster up the courage to talk about the things we aren’t supposed to talk about.

Kathleen Ragelis, Head of People at Komodo Health, joins the show to share her experience with the power of vulnerable conversations and how they translate to business results.

She also walks us through how to build an environment that balances high-performance with high-care. She shares three practices her team uses to stay in touch with the rest of their company, and the role of managers in cultivating healthy culture.
