This week, Brad meets up with Don Jones, the Curriculum Director at PluralSight.
The guys talk about the tension and drama that accompanied Don’s early career as a Star Trek convention organizer, how to navigate the cultural blockers when your company is trying to modernize – and how you can be the person who successfully leads this change (even when company leadership is ambivalent). The also discuss whether or not Don used to manage a Frito factory.
