Building a Team that Lasts and Lasts

One of the most difficult elements of growing a business is hiring and the right team members. That is why it is critical to be slow to hire and quick to fire. Unfortunately, not many business owners follow this advice. Instead, they hire the first person that reasonably fits the role before they’ve learned a lot about them.

Barry shows how to stop the employee merry-go-round and effectively hire, train, manage and fire people to provide the maximum leverage for every business.

In this new age of social media, traditional advertising has become all but meaningless while customer reviews, or “earned media,” take center stage in a customer’s buying decision. Barry teaches how to create an effective Customer Service Manifesto that always boosts sales.
