Joining us first for the spookiest show of the year is Britney Cole! Britney is a Vice President of Solution Architecture and Innovation at The Ken Blanchard Companies, and Co-Founder of Bolster Leadership. Bolster Leadership is a company that develops strategies to promote learning organizations, where cultures can form where everyone sees themselves as a leader with the capabilities to succeed in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and/or ambiguous environment. Britney joined us to talk about the work-life balance and how to have better days at work. This can include talking to your team about any problems they have at home, promoting time management skills, and how to keep challenged and happy at work without facing the rigors of burning yourself out. Time with the family and friends where work doesn't happen because your phone is off can be a very good thing! 

In the second half, Simon Mainwaring has some very interesting insights to share about how to form the purpose of an organization. Simon is the Founder and CEO of We First, a company specializing in consulting to accelerate growth and impact for purpose-driven brands. He's also a member of the Steering Committee of Sustainable Brands, the Forbes Business Council, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and author of "Lead With We: The Business Revolution That Will Save Our Future". Simon shares some thoughts about purpose in business; the purpose of a business should be the base of everything they do, and should be critical to any decision the company makes at all levels. There's room for people not at the top, if given a chance, to build consensus internally and help the business under their own initiative, with ideas that might not occur to others.
