    Bill Haslam—Leading with Empathy When Your People are Divided

    Some believe being a strong leader means having all the answers and ruling with an iron fist. But unfortunately for them, they don't last long. It's only when you lead with empathy and compromise that you build trust and buy-in within your organization. In this episode we talk with former Tennessee governor Bill Haslam, author of the book Faithful Presence, about how to lead, even in the most turbulent times, with an open mind and not by your emotions.

    Doug Keim—How to Attract, Hire and Manage Top Talent

    Hiring and managing top talent to grow your business can be overwhelming. Without a clear process to thoroughly qualify potential hires, you could find yourself on-boarding your uncle’s best friend’s cousin as your new sales director solely based on the fact that “they sold stuff at a job they had in college one time”.

This week Don breaks down how you can start implementing one with special guest and Business Made Simple President, Doug Keim.
