Pam + Authenticity

Reading Time: 1 minute

Stories Inc. does not have a clock-punching work environment—team members are encouraged to take breaks during the workday, meet friends for lunch, etc.

One day, Pam, a communications intern, spoke up and told Lauryn and Scott that she wasn’t comfortable taking breaks because she noticed that Lauryn and Scott weren’t taking breaks. Pam’s willingness to communicate openly provided a crucial realization and leadership learning lesson to Lauryn and Scott, who make sure they practice what they preach, including taking breaks during the work day.
