I've gone back and re-read this repeatedly since I first saw it. I'm deeply saddened that that was her experience, and it's a great reminder for me how much of a responsibility I bear to be vigilant as to the environment team members here work in. #xp https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/07/opinion/google-job-harassment.html
Finally got my new, very tentacly boots. I am very in love with them... #xp

It snuck up on me this year, but Ramadan Mubarak! #xp
To me, this is especially important after the employment year we have all just had. The seriousness with which QL/Rocket has taken COVID-19's impact on our team and our city has been amazing. ❤
For those that know me, that I'm still here after nearly 5 years should be all the evidence you need that this place is pretty great to work...but if you needed more, here you go: @RocketCompanies just made #5 on the @FortuneMagazine list #xp https://www.quickenloans.com/press-room/2021/04/12/rocket-companies-ranked-5-on-fortunes-100-best-companies-to-work-for-list/
Time for a socially distant date night with my lovely wife. I really dig that Detroit is doing this to help keep folks coming downtown! Tonight, The Croods! #xp
I'm unbelievably excited...a tattoo artist that I've been following for a long time hoping to get on their books has an opening and I've booked it!! I've been lucky to get some really great artists to mark me up <3 #xp
The "Shopping Cart Theory" as a test of your self-governance readiness got a lot of mileage over the last year (https://medium.com/be-unique/the-curious-case-of-the-shopping-cart-theory-802909d93cff) but a much more visible barometer came this year: the simple mask.
It's an efficient "at-a-glance" tool to gauge someone's empathy and ability to self-govern...
Not wearing a mask? Completely lacking in empathy
Mask under their nose? Possible reserves of empathy...maybe
Mask wearer? Exceeds the bare minimum
This is it - our 100th episode! To commemorate the occasion, Jer & Dawn do something a little different this time. They ask one another questions they want to hear the other one answer!
Special thanks to everyone who has supported us on our way to 100! https://leadingquestionspodcast.com/2021/03/episode-100-where-everybody-knows-your-name/

The Snyder Cut: Much better handling of Cyborg and Steppenwolf, somewhat better sense of plot, much less of a sense of humor about itself, Superman is still way OP.
With heavy editing it could have been a good 3h movie, instead it's a fair-to-good 4h one. #xp
In this week's episode, a listener asks us a question about dealing with the kind of overwhelm that impacts your productivity, and Jer & Dawn tackle the topic of burnout head-on. #podcast #leadership
Stayed up later than planned, but as it approached 2, I was like "no biggie, at 2 it'll roll back to 1 and I'll be okay."
Imagine my surprise a few minutes ago when the clock went from 1:59 to 3:00.
I'm great at time. #xp
As part of a scavenger hunt for charity, I'm fundraising to support indigenous families losing their homes (to support the people, not...you know). For the next 24h, I'll match all donations to our fundraiser here https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/itlmooseavngngbdgrslovessmeagish up to 1k. Donate or share, please! Everything helps (and I'm doubling, so it helps twice!!)
Quotes from our meeting:
