The 1% Podcast – Tessa Misiaszek
Tessa Misiaszek is a speaker, writer, and professor who, throughout her professional and academic experience, has examined the intersection between marketing strategy and workplace culture. Today, Misiaszek is the head of research for the Korn Ferry Institute, an Instructor with Harvard Division of Continuing Education, and cofounder of the Happy at Work podcast. She is also the co-author of the newly released book, ‘Branding that Means Business’.
According to Tessa companies need to build a deep awareness of their “why” to understand the subconscious reasons people would gravitate to them.
Tessa explains why she feels Gen Z are more strategic thinkers than any other generation and are motivated to and capable of changing the world for the better.

Others are still evolving, not least when it comes to the relationship between businesses and their employees’ health and wellbeing. One practice that has emerged as potentially pivotal in bridging the gap between personal welfare and workplace performance is that of mindfulness.”
