Today we’re talking with Neil Parikh, the Co-Founder and CSO of Casper, one of the most popular mattress manufacturers. Casper has been an amazing story of growth and success, but it’s also had its struggles along the way. Neil has been there leading since day one, he and I met about 3 and a half years ago, and it has been a true honor to watch him, his co-founders, and the team at Casper take the dream of a better-rested world and made it a reality. Through our time together Neil has consistently demonstrated a huge vision, and a desire to make a big impact on the world. We’re going to talk about accepting shortcomings and leaning into strengths, catching frustrations at the root of the logical fallacy, the way safety plays into acceptance, and discovering capabilities that the perfectionist in us wants to hide.
We spoke with Chloe Drew about her experiences with coaching early on in life, the value of empathy in the workplace, and using self-skepticism to catch personal blind spots in a leadership role.
We talk with Christina Sass about experiences with coaching on both sides of the equation, seeking out inherent blind spots in the corporate world, and relating lessons she's taken from her personal experiences as a founder and activist to the ways we can invest in people and handle growth, both personally and as a nation.
Fashion and brand innovator Jameel Spencer calls for change, addresses systemic racial injustice, takes us inside the world of working with icons, and shares how coaching unleashes potential.
