Today, SLI Team members Carol Malinski and Olivia Pence talk with Kristen Hadeed about the current workplace climate amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and discuss Kristen’s Remote Working Guide: How to Lead a Team & Yourself.

In 2017, she published her first book, “Permission to Screw Up,” in which she tells the stories of her biggest mistakes in leadership. She hopes to inspire other leaders to share their “perfectly imperfect” stories of success to empower people with the knowledge that their most challenging moments can become their biggest leadership lessons. Kristen and Student Maid have been featured in news outlets including PBS, FOX Inc., NBC, TIME, and Forbes. Her first TED Talk has received over three million hits on YouTube.
