The conversation revolves around the challenges organizations face today.

She observes that leaders can feel held hostage by various stakeholders, leading to exhaustion and a lack of clarity in organizational goals.

To address this problem, Cheryl emphasizes the need for leaders to make a courageous decision to change the status quo.

Ultimately, the podcast discusses the importance of leaders being willing to make tough choices and stay focused on their organization’s purpose, even if it means some individuals may opt-out.
