What is it?

From Mark Horstman, Co-founder:

You will learn what you need to do and how to do it (in detail) to help you achieve results and retain your team. This is the only management training where people stay afterwards for one to two hours for the Q&A session. It's that good. If you don't agree, we'll give you your money back.
