How to Be a Human at Work with Hannah Goldberg

 

In 20 years of working, Hannah Goldberg, Head of Sales – Major Accounts at Zoom, had one female leader who changed her awareness of what and how people can lead.

From the first time Hannah met her, she shared how she integrated her work and her young child at the time. She set expectations around what that meant for her lifestyle as a working mom.

That was an aha moment for Hannah, and she adopted that open communication style. It allowed her to be open about her life, and work, and trying to be a mom.

Now anyone who starts working with Hannah will hear what her entire life looks like, and exactly how she balances work and family. It cascades and makes the people around her feel comfortable being human.

Hannah’s second aha moment came when her older daughter was diagnosed with cancer at age 2.

In that moment, she adopted what she calls “living and loving and the silver linings.”

She bridged her newfound perspective with the commitment that she learned from her former leader, and it made the balance easier. Because she knows more than most just how lucky we are on all sides of life and not to sweat the small stuff.

Having this perspective allows also allows you to say to those going through hardship:

“It’s ok for you to dedicate 100% of yourself to that hardship right now. And when you’re ready to bring it back, we’ll be here waiting for you.”

The strongest leaders have that perspective.

Listen to Hannah’s incredible story and aha moments that shaped her life as she chats with Christina Brady!
