It’s easy to feel attacked when a colleague volunteers a perspective that differs from your own.

But what if their way of seeing the world is not wrong? What if it’s just different?

And what if their point of view is complementary to yours? What if, together, you can address each other’s blind spots and support each other better because of your differences?

CEO Darrin Murriner and COO Kirsten Moorfield are the co-founders of Cloverleaf, a tech platform that provides automated coaching for teams, empowering colleagues to tap into each other’s unique value, communicate effectively and work better together.

On this episode of Workplace Forward, Kirsten and Darrin join me to discuss the power in inviting and leveraging diverse perspectives in our organizations and describe how Cloverleaf helps teams do just that.

Kirsten and Darrin explain why authenticity in leadership is important to them, exploring the opportunity we have as leaders to model authenticity when we don’t have all the answers.
