Working With Values Series

At Flyntrok, we believe there are many ways to work with values. One that we hold close, is working with values through conversations and stories. We created the Working With Values series to provide a platform where some of the best minds from across the globe can share and build on each other’s perspectives of working with Values. This series includes conversations, webinars, short and long AV posts.

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Mary Gentille, on working with Values.
