The Evolution Exchange #136 – How Does a Diverse Team Impact Success?
How does a diverse team impact success? It's a question many leaders face in search of the right people to hire.
Our CEO and co-founder Maria Svantemark was recently on an episode of The Evolution Exchange podcast to discuss this topic with podcast host Sophie Gould and panelists Abel Buko, Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Zimpler, and Abhishek Sharan, Head of Quality at DigitalRoute.
In the episode, Maria shared how, in her journey of building SustainLab in the midst of the pandemic in 2020, she expanded the team with talents from around the world like India, Thailand, Spain, and other cities in Sweden. In response to that, podcast host Sophie Gould was curious about how Maria was able to effectively manage her globally-diverse team daily.
“One thing that connects the team is that we’re all impact-driven, and we all have the ambition to accelerate change for a better planet. We talk about these ideas daily, and weekly: How can we accelerate change? How can we make something better for the customers? How can we create proactive marketing? These are things that make the team really strong.” – Maria Svantemark.
Other topics discussed in this podcast episode include:
Diversity within cross-functional teams
Hiring the best person for the team, not the role
