“Using our emotions to be successful in our work every single day” with Blake Schofield, Founder & CEO | E65

As women leaders, we have a lot of responsibility on our shoulders. We’re raised to believe it’s our job to take care of everyone. We’re balancing raising children, taking care of our homes, and finding time for ourselves. And when we get to work, we’re expected to check our home lives and emotions at the door.

Blake Schofield wants to see more humanity brought into the workplace and into Corporate America. We are not robots and our employees aren’t either. We each have our fears, doubts, and anxieties. When we can’t express our emotions, we create environments where people are constantly redoing things and afraid to make a move.
