Episode 021 Get Out of Your Box – Interview with Rusty Lindquist, Author/Speaker Bamboo HR

Rusty tells a story of how his father tried to sacrifice him, as a child, like Abraham was called to sacrifice his son Isaac. After his mother escapes with her two children Rusty’s life gets even more interesting and tragic, and he intuits, at a young age, that his story and his ability to rise above it will create his purpose.

Rusty is the Vice President of HCM Strategy and Thought Leadership at Bamboo HR where he focuses on helping organizations discover and increase employee value. He is a public speaker who is focused on human performance engineering and he is passionate about helping people reframe and rise above the self-imposed limitations of their past and the stories that come along with it.
