"As the veil is lifted in the workplace and teams find relevance in the character of their co-workers and leaders, we are creating a new paradigm for workplace culture. I’m excited to be part of the thought leadership of a high-integrity platform like The Principal Post as it evolves the model for individual personal transparency, on a global scale."
