Ep 105: Taking a Stand for Friendship in Business with Shasta Nelson

by | Podcast

Not only is Shasta Nelson a great example of an excellent thought leader, her insights around connection and friendship in business really can change your experience of life and work overall.

In this episode, Shasta shares the story of how she became an expert in friendship, largely because it was a deeply important topic with very little research and resources available. You’ll also learn the simple, yet profoundly valuable model for creating friendships that are fulfilling, wherever the relationship originates. This conversation is invaluable for corporate businesses—especially during these strange times of unprecedented working from home where friendship in business is more important than ever before.
