    Focus Forward Business Podcast with Sturdy McKee - S2 Ep. 23 Bob Hayward

    Bob Hayward shares some great insights that I immediately put to work in my business. We covered a range of topics related to sales and business growth.

    In this episode Bob emphasizes the importance of providing value to customers and understanding the cost of doing nothing, along with the critical role of trust and trust-building skills in sales and service delivery.

    And we delved into the importance of adding real value and profit by identifying the customer's pain points and solving them in a unique way.

    I hope you get as much out of our conversation as I did.



    Bob is located in Swindon, England.

    According to Luci Gabel, MA, MBA reaching your next level in leadership depends on the healthy habits you create—personally and with others. Research and experience working in leadership roles with hundreds of people has strengthened her conclusions that 

    • contrary to popular belief, we aren’t born leaders, we learn leadership.

    • your skills get better with practice

    • the highest levels of leadership can only come once you have your self care in order



    Luci is a national speaker and educator, teaches at the George Washington University School of Medicine, wrote the book, Eat to Lead, and hosts the podcast Leadership, Life, Health and Happiness.

    Her leadership experience spans from private companies to the U.S. Department of Defense, to VC-funded start-up founder.
