We were completely stuck. Our leadership team knew that we were operating at 50% capacity but everyone had a different take on what was wrong. We decided to bring in outside help. The (Workbench) team came in, systematically identified our issues, mapped out a plan, and worked alongside us through implementation. Now, our business is thriving and so is our leadership team.

My friends and team members know that one of the last places on planet earth you will likely find me is at a work-related conference. There was a time when I frequented these hybrid social/professional gatherings, diligently took notes, and even made some new friends. Those days are long gone.
