Great podcast

You don’t have to be an HR professional or entrepreneur to benefit from this podcast! I always get a nugget of valuable information from each episode. It’s enjoyable to listen to because it’s a real and easy going conversation.

Such an easy listen and full of great nuggets of wisdom

After ready Outrageous Empowerment, I was delighted to find out that Ron also has a podcast. It’s a refreshing and out of the box look at team dynamics.
Fingers crossed for a second book!
