So annoying to deal with SM who is stuck in his mentality of work culture from his home country.. to be super hierarchical and doesn't expect anyone to challenge him.. just sits like a boss. ...

My experience is endeavor to learn about hierarchical norms across the global cultural landscape out of respect (and to better team), and then adapt a different approach for communicating with those that are more vertically wired.

Hi there,

If you or someone you know is hiring for an Internal communications lead focused on employee engagement, I’d love a connection.

I decided to leave my company without a new role lined up to focus on finding the right fit. I’ve been lucky to land roles where I wanted to stay for years, but unfortunately the company culture didn't align with my values and was not the right fit.

I help leaders and teams inform, inspire and connect with their employees.

Thanks,
Myra
