Building Unstoppable Teams: Attract, Engage, and Empower Top Talent With Mike Michalowicz

As you start growing your company, you need the right people on your team. Even if you're the CEO, you can’t be the only one leading the company’s direction and strategy. You need a strong team of A-players to challenge your ideas and contribute new ones. 


Building a strategy should be easy when you have the right people in the right positions. Attracting and retaining top talent is the challenging part. Hiring can be tricky, and sometimes, it can feel like you may never find the right fit.
