Episode 125: Interview with Peter Hersics

Linda Ockwell-Jenner is joined by Peter Hersics, Vice-President and CFO of Gateman Milloy.

We may say we learned a lesson but we often think in black and white. Measuring honesty and effort puts us squarely in the grey, where we can honestly assess what we learned, and evaluate the effort we put in, and try and “fail” better.
