Eric believes that leading and achieving don’t have to be soul crushing. Work with Eric and picture you and your group evolving from good….to full on kick-ass. Except all concerned are less stressed, less buried in minutiae, less freaked, frustrated or micro-managed. There are fewer meetings, emails, and BS, and more getting things done when you and your team members really, really want to crush it with meaningful work (and find more joy in doing it).
