There is a toxic strain of positivity loose in some workplaces that, if left untreated, can severely weaken trust. In this episode, Ila and Charles look at “toxic positivity” and how this form of dishonesty can damage people’s trust in each other. We also offer some ideas for what you can do to help yourself and the people you work with if you see it infecting your workplace, leaving people without access to their whole, creative selves.  We dig deep in this episode and encourage us to see each other for the real humans we are.

We want to thank the team that continues to support us in producing, editing and sharing our work. Jonah Smith for the heartfelt intro music you hear at the beginning of each podcast. We LOVE it. Hillary Rideout for writing descriptions, designing covers and helping us share our work on social media. Chad Penner for his superpower editing work to take our recordings from bumpy and glitchy to smooth and easy to listen to episodes for you to enjoy. From our hearts, we are so thankful for this team and the support they provide us.
