Silos are for grain, not people 😂

This is a practical and informative podcast, and as a career coach, I LOVE how Brian shares insights not only to benefit the employer, but also to help them create an environment every employee wants to work in! Kudos, Brian! 👏

Highly practical advice for leaders

I really enjoyed the episode about handling an underperforming employee, which starts with us as the leader--especially ensuring we provide training and resources. I've seen an employee with latent talent bloom after removing these barriers. Keep putting out tons of value Brian!
