Episode 3- Live, Laugh, Learn with Theresa Hummel-Krallinger
The lines between work and 'life' have become increasingly blurry in the past 2 year.  Employees at all levels are considering how their contributions matter.  As a result, employee engagement is a topic on everyone's mind in the L&D world.  Whether you are in the office, remote, or even a mix of both, the challenge of engagement often falls to the L&D teams as champions of corporate culture initiatives.   In this episode Josh is joined by Theresa Hummel-Krallinger.  Theresa is a trainer, speaker, comedian, and Emmy award winner who believes training teams can serve a noble purpose; ensure the human connection for purpose in our work does not get overshadowed by profit.   As the host of 'Meet the Author', Theresa shares book recommendations how she balances her performance career with her training schedule.   Enjoy the episode as she will helps us find ways to live fuller, laugh harder, and learn better.  Don't miss the end of the episode when she shares one of her favorite jokes during the 'Learning Curveballs' segment!
