106 Pod Art.jpg

Picture this: You lead a team of 15 employees. You put together a team meeting to discuss several sales initiatives that are key to the sales growth you promised the VP would be a success. The initiatives are very risky, but nonetheless crucial to the success of the quarter. You are looking forward to the team's reaction, but when you deliver the messages and ask for feedback…..

There’s a problem.

People are afraid to speak up….. and that’s an issue!

In this episode Ricky Baez and JC touch on how a culture of fear prevents crucial information from hitting a leader’s radar, and how a culture of trust would ensure that information is not only well received, but encouraged.
