BUSINESS GROWTH KEYNOTE SPEAKER
In high performance companies, the bottleneck to sustained growth is rarely a lack of opportunities for growth, but rather insufficient bandwidth among top talent to pursue all the available opportunities. And the war for talent is making motivating and retaining top talent more mission critical than ever.
To add to the challenge, during periods of growth, growing companies are often outgrow many their leaders. Effective managers of small teams often stumble as their team grows because effectively leading large teams requires different leadership behaviors. As Marshall Goldsmith said, the leadership style that “got you here, won’t get you there.”
