EP 11: Build Your People And Your People Will Build You - With Tracey Taylor (CEO Of Yellow)

WayForward.tv - By Anuj Singh-Sahni

Today we’re in conversation with Tracey Taylor, the current CEO of Yellow. She has got a wealth of experience in the people space, managing the human side of a business. In this podcast, we talk about business, startups, and high performance from a human perspective. Regardless of where you are in your journey, I’m sure you’ll capture a couple of epiphanies and that they will help you pave the way forward.

“But I feel obliged...”

This is why setting healthy boundaries are important…

Not just for your colleagues but also for your clients if you’re a business owner.

Tracey here explains a solution-focused approach for bringing up those conversations and having it lead to a mutually beneficial outcome. This comes from a wealth of experience in the people’s space, where she’s lead the HR departments of Yellow New Zealand, Dentsu and Pcubed.

In this podcast interview we speak about running a business but from a people’s perspective. Not numbers, but people.

A common trait I’ve been seeing from all the CEO’s I’ve interviewed so far is “Build your people and your people will build you”

If you’re a startup or solidified business, I think you’ll end up taking a lot from this interview. Links in comment below.

General Manager

"They genuinely felt like development partners as opposed to a company that we had contracted."

We set an ambitious target of hiring 11 senior engineers within a month. To my surprise, we achieved that. During the entire process, PICWA felt like an in-house talent team and worked closely with us to find the right fit. Fast forward 4 years and we're still working with the same team PICWA provided and have no idea how we'd operate without them
