Nancy The Nice. Lyons the brave. Goes by @nylons on Twitter. This lady is a force: for good, for the people, for digital done right. This September, Nancy and I are going to tackle some big fish. Don’t ask me how you tackle fish, just know we’re going to reel those mothers in and then gently let them go once we’ve asked them quite a few questions.
Join us for an hour-long Q&A adventure where we tackle topics like:
- Fear and middle management in the design world
- How to have a really difficult client conversation
- The art of storytelling and how it turns bad news into good news
- Not another Sheryl Sandberg story; Why “Lean In” just isn’t enough
I’m especially excited to talk to Nancy about fixing our work culture. She gets it. She’s a business owner who knows how integrity works and she’s got the nozzle aimed right at the old workplace model.
You don’t want to miss this.
You might know Nancy as co-author of Interactive Project Management: Pixels, People, and Process or you might know her as the CEO of Clockwork, a digital agency awarded Best Workplace in 2013. Maybe you even know Nancy as a recent panelist at the White House sharing a new direction on “The Structure of the Workplace”.
However you know her, the one thing you gotta know is that Nancy’s not afraid to douse industry fear with a little water and a wakeup call.
“Just because you make a ‘perk’ a policy doesn’t mean that you’re going to have a healthy organization or work culture that embraces that ‘perk.’ Beyond creating policies, we all still have to search for ways to truly engage people and make them feel part of something.”
