We are featuring the amazing Danielle Henry, the Senior PM / OD Consultant at Great Dane 921 LLC. We're taking on the topic of Cultural EQ, a topic that’s been dominating boardroom conversations in the workplace: emotional intelligence in ourselves and the people on our teams. Danielle doesn’t hold back as she tells us all about what we think we know, what we don’t, and how to bridge the gap between the two.
