Clear and insightful

As a mid level executive, I find the business landscape increasing in both its complexity and an overdue requirement for a deeper exploration of all stakeholders needs. But embracing these changes can be complex and at times somewhat daunting. I found this podcast helped open up the space to a better understanding of the issues, and provides guidance on how to bring some of these concepts into everyday work. Highly recommended!
