TMM014: Master the Four Secrets of Leadership With Bryan Armentrout
Are you a decision maker? Do you allow your team to make decisions and push them to be critical thinkers?
I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Bryan Armentrout who shows the importance of decision making and building relationship with your team for a better understanding of where they are coming from.
In most situations, it is better to wait and gather the facts, the reality and processed the situation with your team than to make emotional snap decisions.
Your decisions will either make you or break you. And it will have an impact on your company, subordinates, career, and family.
This talk will help you identify your weakness as an employee and how to overcome it. As a manager, you will also be able to identify the type of workers you have, how to handle them, and how to improve their potential by providing avenues for them to grow professionally.
