Strap in for a unique spin on The Left of Boom Show today, where we’re mixing the serious world of work with the sparkle of Broadway. Think of it as your guide to thriving at work and unwinding at the theater.

Mary Faulkner, the talent wizard with a knack for transforming workplaces, joins us. She’s been around the block, turning companies into places where people actually want to work, and she’s here to spill the tea on everything from why your coworkers might be feeling meh to how you can help them find their spark again.

We’ll dive into the nitty-gritty of workplace engagement (or the lack thereof), tackle the big, bad burnout beast, and then lighten the mood with some Broadway banter. Mary’s got some hot takes on must-see shows for 2024 and will even defend the honor of the corn song from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade (yeah, you heard that right).

By the end of our chat, you’ll walk away with some solid advice on keeping your team happy and healthy, plus a list of Broadway and off-Broadway gems to check out.

Tune in to get the best of both worlds: a happier workplace and a happier you, courtesy of the insights and recommendations from Mary Faulkner, right here on The Left of Boom Show. Whether you’re leading a team or just love a good night out at the theater, this episode’s got something for everyone.
