The 1 question great leaders ask about every employee

It’s not a secret, people and their issues are a huge part of any leader’s life. It can be the best (and worst) part of being a leader.

The good news is today’s episode is full of simple, actionable frameworks around developing and leading people. We talk about how to hire, how to fire, how to develop and why people are such a big issue in the first place. We also highlight the one question all great leaders ask, at least once a quarter, about every one of their employees.
