Inspired by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs (they save more lives!), Erica, a longtime workplace strategist, has made it her business to help people honor relationships. And as a hats-off to the firemen and their go-to firehouse meal, she calls her work the Spaghetti Project.
