Another day another dollar and another “Paul”Cast. This time, it is Josh Flagner (@railbirdj). Josh is a seasoned podcaster (I hope I pass his critique… finger’s crossed.) Josh writes, posts, whatever at and hosts the podcast called “RailBirds Nest.” And no – I never asked him why it is called that. I guess you’ll have to go to his site and listen to his stuff to find out why.

Josh and I connected at the 2016 Cleveland DisruptHR event back in February. We were both presenters. I started it off – and it went uphill from there. Josh killed it when he hit the stage and I knew he’d be a good guy to have on the podcast.

Working his way up from the shop floor to a “management” position meant Josh had to learn different ways to manage conflict. One way was more open and direct. Another, more, shall we say, controlled.

Learn what Josh wish he’d been told earlier in his career by listening into our “Paul”Cast below. Email subscribers may need to jump out and listen on soundcloud here.

Thanks, Josh!
