Let’s Solve The

People Puzzle Together

It takes phenomenal courage to start a company. So, why do business leaders drop the ball when it comes to their most important asset – their people? The sooner you connect with employees – asking tough questions and facing hard truths – the sooner you’ll build a culture that attracts and retains the best and brightest.

It Takes Guts

Engaged employees are passionate, creative, and entrepreneurial – exactly what you need to fuel growth.

But you’ll never attract these superstars with outdated recruitment strategies or a workplace that stifles their imagination.

Solve the People Puzzle dares you to step out of the conference room, engage with employees, and learn what really drives them. Here’s why:

  • People need to know they matter, from your senior execs to your hourly workers.
  • Employees quit bad cultures and toxic environments and only you can right that ship.
  • Money won’t solve this problem. In fact, it’s rarely a top motivator for in-demand talent.

With dynamic changes in employment you simply cannot afford to sit this one out.

Top Five Takeaways

If you want A-players, your company must spend as much time and effort attracting candidates as it does attracting clients. Both investments lead to increased profits.

Solve the People Puzzle will show you how to:

  • Engage and hold on to your best employees
  • Adopt an “Always Be Cultivating (ABC)” mindset
  • Attract people who thrive in an entrepreneurial environment
  • Hire for attitude and values above skillset
  • Part ways quickly if the fit isn’t right

I wrote this book to help companies find and keep the talent they need to grow their business. After 30+ years in the industry, I have plenty of gems to share. This fast-paced read will show you how.

Who Should Read This Book?

Solve the People Puzzle was written for C-level executives of companies who need to attract and retain top talent in a fiercely competitive marketplace.

It’s also great for new entrepreneurs because the sooner business owners see employees for who they are –– living, breathing people who need more than a paycheck to excel –– the better workplace culture will be for everyone.

Finally, this book should be a comfort to anyone in the workforce. From senior execs to HR professionals to hourly workers, when we all know what a healthy workplace looks like, we can all do our part to expect more of ourselves, our coworkers, and our leaders.

“If you want to grow your business, you need this book. It’s great perspective for any business leader who strives to stay ahead of the curve.”
