On September 12, 2019, the host of Honest HR and our beloved friend and colleague, Callie Zipple passed away, she was 32.
As our listeners you know Callie was wise beyond her years, extraordinarily passionate and full of life. Callie pursued big ideas relentlessly, she was brave and authentic and brought that to every episode of Honest HR. Her ability to connect with people through episode recordings was not surprising, she was the type of person that made friends everywhere she went. I recently went through her Instagram posts and found one from New Year’s this year. She wrote, “I’m committing to NOT WAITING to tell people how great they are; how much they have impacted my life; when they make me smile; that they matter.”
I don’t assume to know what Callie would want, but when I saw this post I thought, I bet this is something Callie would say on Honest HR. To honor Callie, I’d suggest we all take this good advice.
