Marketing Podcast with David Long

Built to LeadIn a recent interview with my friend Guy Kawasaki, author of Art of the Start 2.0, he mentioned that perhaps the hardest part of building a business was learning how to lead and motivate people.

My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is David Long, CEO of MyEmployees and author of Built to Lead: 7 Management R.E.W.A.R.D.S Principles for Becoming a Top 10% Manager

David’s company helps organizations engage and reward employees and keep them motivate and he’s distilled a great deal of what he’s learned in building his own business and the good, bad and ugly he’s witnessed in organizations he has worked with over the years into his principles for becoming a top 10% manager.

Questions I ask David:

  • What stops people from succeeding at being great leaders?
  • How do you properly invest in the people that are struggling within your company?
  • How do people find, hire and keep good leaders?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How to become an effective leader for your employees
  • How to avoid insecurity in your managers
  • How to keep your employees engaged
