In the 9th episode of the Better Understanding podcast, I’ll introduce you to Sonya Jacobs. Sonya is the Chief Organizational Learning Officer for the University of Michigan and the Senior Director for Faculty and Leadership Development at Michigan Medicine. She is also Special Advisor to the President of the University on culture. She believes that leading inclusively means building relationships with people you don’t know. And that starts with listening to and understanding their unique stories.
