Podcast S3. Ep. 9: Why You Need to Take Care of Your Team First with Screen Nutrition Coach Rachel Leach

“Managing people in other people’s businesses is hard because you don’t get to make the decisions. You just have to make sure they fall in line with the decisions that were made above your head. But when you do build your own thing, you get to decide this is the standard to which I want to hold it.” – Kirsten [00:17:17]

Today, I have one of my favorite people on the podcast, my mentee and the other coach at Screen Nutrition, Rachel Leach. Rachel is so passionate, thoughtful, and hard-working, but our relationship isn’t just about business. We’ve been able to help each other grow in different ways in the last three years.

In this episode, Rachel and I reminisce about how she joined Screen Nutrition. She discusses all the ways she’s grown as a coach since joining my company, and how Screen Nutrition has offered her unique opportunities to grow and expand personally and professionally. We also chat about how to make employees feel valued and why that’s such an important part of having a sustainable business. 

Plus, as always, I’m leaving you with a question today: Do you have your business priorities straight (especially as it pertains to your employees)? Send me a message and let me know!

Okay, let’s dive in!
