As a leader, this episode will show you how to stay resilient and how to teach your team to do the same.

What I particularly like about this episode, aside from the fact that it’s my first, is the warmth, humor, and wisdom of my guest. I think you’ll really like this launch episode. Let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚
