Good business is just common sense. Unfortunately common sense is often not common practice as Richard J. Bryan, international speaker, author and executive coach explains as he talks through some simple strategies that can transform any business.
Every leader faces enormous challenges and responsibilities. How do you hire, mentor, and build a great team to create a powerful, well-oiled machine? How do you propel the entire team forward towards a clear vision? How do you tackle the tough stuff, such as financial turnarounds?
Richard talks from experience.
