Ali on the Run Show Episode 269: Ali & the Experts with Laura Parrott, Career Coach

“Looking for technical solutions to people problems doesn’t work.”

Welcome to the Ali & the Experts series! For the next six weeks, I’ll be talking with six different experts who will be answering all of your questions. We’re kicking things off today with a major career pep talk, courtesy of Laura Parrott. Laura, who lives in Detroit, MI, is currently the Head of People at Floyd. Before that, she spent eight years leading recruiting work at McKinsey, seven years working in people management and leadership development at Google, and, most recently, she was the lead for manager development programming at Hubspot. Laura is also a fitness instructor and is the founder of her own coaching company. On this episode, she answers questions about people challenges at work, including dealing with a difficult boss, networking during a pandemic, being laid off, and getting back into the workforce after taking time off to have children. A must-listen!
