While some dismal news looms for businesses in January, how do we embrace positivity?  Can we find the opportunities to put the power of positivity into action?


In today’s episode, I sit down with Jenny Katchepaw, who is the Vice President of talent engagement for a large California-based bank. With her focus on helping employees stay engaged with their own work, she believes in the power of positivity as the driving force.
