508: Michelle Houghton on What Makes Teams Work (and it isn't what you'd think)

In this talk given at our October 2019 Gathering, Michelle dives into the topic of Teamwork. Instead of just relying on her own experience with teams, she decided to do some research, and in that process found a rather surprising answer to the question, "what makes teams work?" It wasn't leadership. It wasn't the size of the goal. It wasn't communication... So what was it? Something she never expected, and you'll have to listen to find out.

412: Kelsey Baldwin on How to be Brave & Strong in the Messy Middle

"When life-changing pain is coupled with the welcoming of a new story for yourself, the word bittersweet just doesn’t do it justice. You are quite literally in the middle — anchored between where you thought you were headed and where you’re going now. In that uncertain middle space is where this story takes place, and maybe where you find yourself, too. The life I had imagined for myself, the one I was right in the middle of, quickly crumbled around me on a single day as I was faced with a very unexpected looming divorce while staring at an equally-unexpected positive pregnancy test. It wasn’t the way it was supposed to go. With each uncertain transition I went through — divorce, pregnancy, giving birth, moving cities, dating, raising a child without a partner — I clung to what I knew for sure: I was a strong girl and a brave girl, and the middle was not the ending.
