In this fun episode, Rick and Kaleem have a lively discussion with Lars Schmidt, Founder at Amplify, a company he founded in 2013. Amplify is a multifaceted business that supports and drives the HR community to meet this moment through: HR executive search, HR & leadership development (Amplify Academy), editorial projects, and a robust global community of modern people leaders. 

Lars' personal mission is accelerating innovation in HR, and he has the track record to prove it. He was Vice President of HR at Ticket Master. He was also Senior Director of Talent Acquisition at NPR. Did you know he was  a contributing writer for Fast Company and Forbes? 

As if those accolades weren't enough, THE Adam Grant wrote him a testimonial for his book Redefining HR. Adam Grant! 

Lars is the real deal. Would you expect anything less from a congenial fellow who was once a trapeze artist specializing in the Backend Hocks Off? Didn't think so.

We had a blast in this episode, and really learned a lot. Thanks, Lars!
