123: Creating a Culture That Lifts Everyone Up with Jen Paxton

Did you know that you can contribute to improving culture in the tech industry?

You absolutely can, my love! Let’s talk about the practical things you can do daily to create an extraordinary culture that lifts everyone up.

This week, I invite Jen Paxton, VP of People at Smile, HR/recruitment leader, and co-founder of Jamyr, to talk about people operations and how to create better cultures. Whether you’re a leader or head of people (like Jen!), this episode is gold if you want to foster a great culture of feedback, build great communities, and have a team that is working FOR you rather than against you. 

Ready to build connections and relationships with people that will serve you, your organization, and your leadership career?

Let’s go to the show!

We dive into:

  • Jen’s career journey and passion for facilitating people ops in organizations
  • Transitioning from a support role to becoming a founder – why now, and how she did it!
  • The BIGGEST differentiator between tech and other industries when it comes to people operations
  • What you can do to make a positive impact if you’re seeing toxicity play out in your workplace (and how to know if it’s time to leave)
  • Jen’s TOP TIPS to improve the culture experience for your team
  • How you can leverage the people ops department in your organization to uplevel your leadership
  • Her BEST negotiation advice if you’re considering an offer right now (and why you want to leverage THIS)
  • And more
