For episode 11 we play a little 2 v 2 on Timeout with Leaders. We got to talk with Kim Allen, CEO and Jessica Savage, President of Dixon Schwabl Advertising!

They discuss how they clear the path for their people to succeed, "we will lead you through the fire to make sure it is safe," but it is so much more than work sometimes you just gotta turn up some 80's hits or grab the microphone to have fun. Holding each other accountable by leading their company’s core purpose to "provoke progress.”
