    “Technology is transforming every single job on the planet and will replace millions of them in the upcoming years.

    However, we have an unbeatable competitive advantage over technology: it can’t do what humans are unique and extraordinary at – being human.

    Permission to Be Human is a timely and necessary guide for leaders to heighten their EQ, systems, and processes for our shared human experience at work.”
