By Morag Barrett
Welcome to SkyeTeam's People First! In this series, we explore the people side of successful business and careers. We all have a story to share, a leadership journey that we are experiencing.
We'll be interviewing authors, business leaders, thought leaders, and people like you to uncover the latest ideas, resources and tools to help you become more effective at work - and in life.
As it turns out, the secret is cultivating winning relationships. Business is personal, and relationships matter!
So, sit back, grab a coffee as Morag Barrett and Dr. Helen Turnbull discuss one of the most salient topics of our times, The Illusion of Inclusion.
