As a leader, how many times have you asked yourself this question:
“Am I the only one here who cares?”

Join Michael and Jim as they explore this topic and offer one powerful word that will forever change the way you think about your employees.
Recruiting and developing strong people is the most critical and challenging job for most leaders.
